Release Date: 1986 | Tracklist

Review Summary: orite

1986 was the best year ever made. Somehow forgotten or never even known by most, Cryptic Slaughter were a bands band, in the fact that they didnt care what anyone thunk. They were one of the first real hardcore crossover dudes, taking DRI's foundations and blowing em the *** out the water. Convicted is the band at their most intense, you wont find any refused esque chorus's here. The vocalist is ***ing nuts, i dont know his name but who cares, his screams are electrifying and will kick you up the harris if you arent too careful. The drums are insane, even by todays standards they are goin at the speed of death, you can tell he didnt use a lame ass click track. The first track doesnt mess about, starting with stop starts and angry wails and before you know it you are kickin some orientals head in. The song Lowlife is a classic of the genre, from the opening tom hits to the insane blasts it aint lettin up. The song Sate Control features a sweet descendants rip off riff to the insane verse. The songs a real punt in the nads. The rest of the record follows hard suit i mean the record is pretty much the same *** throughout but thats the beauty of it, diversity is cool for iron hoofs but for us hard dudes? keep it simple, keep it true.

I recommend this to all of sputnik, especially all of me ol china plates, i mean even the skramz retards would maybe dig it. Convicted is easily one of the most important crossover records out there and doesnt feel dated in the slightest. For true thrashers dont be put off by the butchered core tag, this was 86 when hardcore was ***ing hardcore. Even the pussy ska kids should check this. Be warned though, you may end up mutt and jeff.

Metalhead he is. But he's pretty open mind with rock in general, especially prog rock of course.
