If you were a devoted fanzine collector or tape trader during the undergrounds heyday, the name LETHAL PRESENCE should automatically be ingrained in ones mind. Fast forward to present day, "Unholy Alliance" remains a sought after gem among collectors and copies of the original cassette are nearly impossible to find.
LETHAL PRESENCE stormed onto the Toronto Thrash Metal scene from 1984 to 1988. Most notably they took part in the seminal proto-death metal manifesto "Raging Death" LP alongside SADUS, XECUTIONER (pre-Obituary), R.A.V.A.G.E. (pre-Atheist), and BETRAYEL.
This CD compiles their seminal "Unholy Alliance" Demo from 1986, mastered from the original tape, and four other never before heard tracks from 1985/1986, one of which features Rick Nemes from INFERNAL MAJESTY on drums.
After LETHAL PRESENCE' demise in 1988, Bobby Sadzak went on to SLAUGHTER/STRAPPADO, with whom he re-recorded a couple of old LETHAL PRESENCE tunes, which are included on this LP in their primal versions.
This 2020 reissue features an 4-page insert, 4 bonus tracks, and an in depth interview with Bobby Sadzak.
