THE MOSHKETEERS - The Downward Spiral [1992 Demo]
LABEL: Roxx Records (2010)
THE MOSHKETEERS were formed in 1985 as Rapture in Albuquerque, NM. As Rapture they recorded 2 demos, "Rapture" (1987) and "Vacation From Hell" (1989). Shortly after the release of that second demo (raw, early Anthrax inspired thrash) the band changed their name to The Moshketeers.
As THE MOSHKETEERS, they would record 3 quality demos: "The Moshketeers" (1989), "The Downward Spiral" (1992), and "Pre-Release" (1997). Though the band had been rumored to have signed a deal with a large independent, eventually nothing came from it and the band called it a day.
This 2010 re-issue from Roxx Records includes the complete 1992 and 1997 recordings, as well as 1 track from the '89 demo, fully remastered and with brand new artwork exclusive to this release.
