Cryptic Slaughter - Convicted LP (Black vinyl)
Cryptic Slaughter is a bit of an overlooked band. They played a very unique type of metal called crossover thrash, and they were very good at it. They were definitely one of the fastest bands in the L.A. metal scene and left every other band back in the dust. They are also one of the earliest bands to perfect the blast beat. Was Cryptic Slaughter an influence on Napalm Death? You bet!
