Synopsis

Album Details
Initially Known as Heresy, this Thrash Metal Outfit Hailed from Tucson, Arizona, USA. The Band was Formed in 1987 by Vocalist Brian Zimmerman and Guitarist Chris Lykins. Recruiting Rick Skowron (Guitar), James Gulotta (Bass) and Tim Kelly (Drums), They Recorded a Demo "chemical Dependency", the Same Year. This Attracted the Attention of Thrash Specialists Roadrunner Records, who Immediately Recognized them as a Band with Great Potential. "socialized Hate" was an Impressive Debut, featuring Heavy-duty Riffing, Screaming Guitars and Thoughtful Lyrics. Their Second Album "violent by Nature" Saw Some Musical Progression, with the Material Showing a Greater Awareness of Melody and a Slightly Less Extreme Approach.

Old memories from teen years

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is one of those bands you come across and don't keep track of them, and after many years you wonder what happened to them but you can not find their trace anymore. I used to own Violent by Nature back when a was a teenager recorded on a tape, I lost it, and now I would like to have it again, because it was cool."
Great album but...

"This a great album from local faves, and one of the best Arizona-born metal bands (along with Sacred Reich and Flotsam & Jetsam [I'd actually place Atrophy right between those, as far as quality of bands go]). It sounds great on what players this will play on...and there is the problem: This CD does not play on all CD players, and I am not able to upload it to my computer, either. I like to have all the music I'm currently listening to on my computer, so I don't have to carry the CD's around. I'm a tad disappointed because I was looking forward to checking out some of the other reissues in this series (Atrophy's "Socialized Hate," albums by Sadus, Gorguts, Heathen, Pestilence, and Solitude Aeturnus, among others), but I am not sure I want to spend the money if I can't be positive I can play them."
Finest thrash from the 80's...

"
Back in the day i bought this gem on cassette, gladly i found it on CD but way expensive along with their first album, "Socialized hate". On this album Atrophy improves their vocal duties far better than their first and a more interesting guitar riffs also the production is better. Recommended if you like Exodus, Xentrix and the likes!!"
