CD Reviews

One of Metal's Best Kept Secrets!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you weren't around for the Nasties' in 1985-90, you missed a visual and sonic force that left many an impression on our fortunate eyes and ears. After their early "Wage of Mayhem" demo, Nasty Savage was signed to Metal Blade and put out this debut album. Upon release and first listen, I had to walk 10 blocks back home. That's how far it blew me away. Nasty Ronnie, star of stage, screen, and radioactivity, brings this unholy confluence to a boil. On this platter, he is a one-man demolition squad of terror, morbity, and bizarre sex. Underneath his delivery, is some of the most well-thought out, technically proficient playing to be found in the genre. Curtis Beeson has to be one of the most precise and creative drummers in all of metaldom! "Nasty Savage" as an album, brings the best of Mercyful Fate and Slayer, and couples them with a Frank Zappa-esque flair for musicality. Twisted, brilliant, and cohesive. Brutal Finesse! Buy It!"
What a debut!

"This album was not death metal or even thrash metal by today's standards. It was, however, an incredible debut that I ended up owning on cassette, album form, and finally, CD. Unfortunately, Nasty Savage sounded best when they werent trying to be heavy. Some bands do (Metallica, Possessed come to mind immediately), just check out the incredible original version of XXX (available on Metal Massacre 6) and then listen to the much faster, more aggressive, and much less interesting version on the CD 'Indulgence' and see what I mean.)
This album is actually very good "idontknowwhatyouwouldcategorizethisstuffas" metal for this time period. For some reason, they decided to use more death metal growls and faster beats on future records and that made them sound like they were trying to do too much....This album is their crowning glory."
Please revisit this band!

"Of all the metal bands of the eighties, Nasty Savage is at the very top in terms of uniqueness, crazy riffs and lyrics, and mixing bizarre melodies with brutal heaviness. This band will make your head a good way. After all these years, I always go back to Nasty Savage... and this record in particular - it is a brilliant piece of work for such a young act. "No Sympathy," "Gladiator," "Asmodeus" - you can't pick a bad track on this one. Nasty Savage got a little more death metal leaning on later records - losing some of the hooks and unique vocals , so this debut is the most straight up metal of their output. You really can't go wrong with any of their records though and I'm thrilled to say that their brand new album (after 14 years!!) Psycho Psycho is just pulverizing. This is a band I can't stop rooting for. Definitely worth your $$$."
