DEATHRASH To Release Collection Of Live, Demo Recordings

Bassist/founding member Pat Burns of the long-defunct New Jersey thrashers DEATHRASH has sent the following update to BLABBERMOUTH.NET:

"[DEATHRASH] rocked the world from '85-'87 and released a very popular demo tape, called 'Faces OF Death', that was the #6 demo of 1986 in Metal Forces magazine, were on the compilation 'Speed Metal Hell 2' on New Renaissance Records and are listed in the book 'A to Z of Thrash Metal'. We are having a get-together for the 20th anniversary of the release of 'Faces of Death' in February. We haven't been in the same room together in over 10 years. We are planning to go over the old live tapes from '86 and '87 and digitize the best tracks for a future CD release that would include the demo. A lot of the live stuff has never been released. There is also talk of possibly recording some new stuff."

DEATHRASH's lineup had briefly included drummer Tony Scaglione, who had previously played with WHIPLASH, SLAYER, LUDICHRIST and RAGING SLAB, among other acts.
