Come on. It's like POWER TRIP but with way more SLAYER, and Reforestation Records has still never let me down so you know you're about to get slaughtered. I've listened to Sacrifice more times than I can count, and I still start mentally moshing every time "Death Leads Us" kicks in....because it's a track that mandates moshing. COMBAT SHOCK made a tape for 17 year old me, for the 17 year old inside of you, and they made it to remind us all that there is a reason people all over the world shit themselves for knuckle dragging TPDM (ThrashPowerDeathMetal): because TPDM is fukkn great. I look to Russia for the future past, and for more of the past in the future. Listen to the opening 70 seconds of "Doomsday" and objectively evaluate your existence.
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:
