Megaforce Records will reissue VIO-LENCE's classic debut album, "Eternal Nightmare", on CD on June 28, 2005.
Produced by John Cuniberti between February and April 1988 at Music Grinder and Alpha & Omega studios in Los Angeles and San Francisco, respectively, "Eternal Nightmare" sees brutal, speed-thrash riffage collide with a lightning-fast barrage of lyrics. The result: a sonic roller-coaster leaving listeners charged and craving more.
The epic 1988 debut, along with blistering live shows gained VIO-LENCE national tours with TESTAMENT and VOIVOD. One track, "Torture Tactics", was recorded during the sessions but deemed too lyrically controversial for inclusion on the album.
The original, out-of-print version on Mechanic Records is a tough find, especially on CD which fetches sums of up to $100 and occasionally more on eBay. Even scarcer are original Japanese and German versions on Mechanic.
VIO-LENCE's lineup on "Eternal Nightmare" included vocalist Sean Killian, bassist Deen Dell, drummer Perry Strickland, and guitarists Phil Demmel and Robb Flynn (both now in MACHINE HEAD).
