Nuclear Assault - Game Over LP (Black vinyl)


With this album being unleashed Nuclear Assault immediately reached out to the world and solidified their importance in thrash metal history. Of course their best work was still to come and they still had to crystallise their own sound but Nuclear Assault already had enough character going on here to put them on the map in a very crowded scene. 

Not only did Nuclear Assault differ from (most) contemporary thrashers in sound (John Connelly has a very specific voice), but also their lyrical content which was on the socially aware side of the thrash metal spectrum instead of singing about bikes, studs, babes or mr. Satan himself. Contrasting with their PC lyrics Nuclear Assault also were in the mood for a joke and each album features some.
