"Given its 1991 release date, it shouldn't surprise anyone that Metal Massacre XI was loaded with thrash bands. Thrash was the style at the time, and new thrash bands were popping out of the woodwork. Of the 14 bands featured on this CD, 11 of them - Mystic Force, Epidemic, Forte, My Victim, Havoc Mass, Ministers of Anger, Dominance, Mortal Reign, Harum Scarum (not to be confused with AOR band Harem Scarem), Chemikill, and Tynator - played thrash-influenced if not straight thrash metal. Divine Right and Nightcrawler were both Warlord-style power metal bands, and the Spudmonsters...who knows what that was all about? They obviously listened to a lot of SOD and DRI.
Unfortunately none of the bands featured on Metal Massacre XI went on to achieve any real success. Still, the disc serves as a nice reminder of 1991's metal landscape.
