Defender - Defender, from "Tales of the Unexpected" demo (1985).
....at least it wasn't Mustaine saying that about himself. Even his response is a little low key for Mustaine.
I remember hearing that intro for the first time when I was 15, very creepy, but cool! I love how Metal Church also had a pretty big impact on USPM as well.
The war is over
The crypt we now taste
In the late 1900's, there is no human race
We split the planet with atomic birth
Man has died
We seal the urn.
Negotiations are over
Troops are marching to their doom
All that I see is a nightmare
The smoke is blotting out the moon
No, God please stop this bloody slaughter
We are off the beaten track
All the masses are rebelling
To withstand the dark attack
Will we make it back beyond the black?
Yeah...and a boatload of others! Gammacide besides churning out some amazing riffs and energy were also really good lyricists. Most of the songs on Victims of Science are strong lyrically too which can't be said for other thrash metal bands....also, I just love the image and the colors of the cover!like Gammacide and Demolition Hammer:
