Septic Death - "Now That I Have Your Attention, What Do I Do With It?", my very first hardcore record. Picked it up through the June 1986 issue of Thrasher Magazine when I signed up for my subscription. Pretty extreme album to be ushered in by, definitely not a light weight collection of music by any means. Heavy, intense, manic and just about as raw as it gets. Septic Death really was Pushead's art and vision personified. I definitely had never heard anything like Septic Death up until that point and I'm pretty certain that 25 years later, I still haven't.
Never heard Septic Death? Do yourself a favor and search em' out. Be warned though, they are not for the faint of heart. Prepare yourself for an onslaught of destruction, something along the lines of what bands like Citizens Arrest and Infest went on to do years after Septic Death's demise. A Maximum RockNRoll article said it best, "Religions were formed to create a god, and god was created, so you wouldn't fear death, and the reality of dying is Septic Death". Make and effort, show your hardware. -Tim DCXX
