Howling and frantic from the explosion of sound that starts "Paranoid Freak" all the way through the next six minutes of torment, Florida's RAWHEAD mow over these tracks more than they bother to play them. The guitars are attacked as if the person playing is afraid of getting hurt, and the vocals approach borderline insane bewilderment without hesitation. The term cacophonous was created to describe sounds like this, and the final dirge "Why Try?" will indeed make you question if it's even worth it.
TERMINAL ESCAPE is a home for cassettes. Terminal Escape is here to share music that was released on, or copied onto, cassette. You are encouraged to acquire physical copies of the tapes you enjoy, as this blog is meant to support those artists and labels, not circumvent them. If you have a legitimate claim to any of the music I've shared and would like it removed, I'm happy to do so....but someone is probably already streaming it on YouTube anyway so you shouldn't be so uptight.
DEAD LINKS are common. Digital media are temporary. I will re-post tapes from Terminal Escape's infancy from time to time (primarily when requested), but I will not chase dead links.
Listen loudly, enjoy enthusiastically, comment frequently, and share liberally. I can be contacted here:
