Cryptic Slaughter is one of the most underrated bands in the history of music. These guys were revolutionary. They were on of the first truly extreme bands. These guys were talented too. To give you an idea of how talented they were Rob Nicholson, their bass player, is now playing for OZZY OSBOURNE! CS play so fast that it is almost a blurr, you can’t even keep up if you have the lyrics in front of you. Along with S.T., D.R.I. AND C.O.C. CS were one of the first bands to combine metal and punk and they did it terrificly. This release also comes with the Life in a Grave demo which might even be better than Convicted! There are also a ton of live tracks. Everyone must buy this CD right now!
