Florida metal legends Nasty Savage just released a rarities compilation album, called Wage of Mayhem + Rarities (1983​​-​​1985), which you can now listen in its entirety via Bandcamp down under.

It contains some of the band's earlier demos, predating their classic self-titled debut album from 1985. Nasty Savage, who got back together in 2016, also plan to release their first studio album since 2004's Psycho Psycho later this year or next year.

Tampa, FL’s Nasty Savage was an associate of the 1st era of American thrash metallic rings, deserving credit alongside famous brands Metallica, Anthrax, and Slayer for assisting the genre gain its 1st footholds within the underground picture, but hardly ever really threatening to check out them into popularity and lot of money.

The music group was created in 1983 by natural-born exhibitionist and pro-wrestling enthusiast “Nasty” Ronnie Galetti, who led Nasty Savage through a set of demos (1984’s Raw Mayhem and Wage of Mayhem — both warm commodities around the world-wide tape-trading circles, within their day time) and three . 5 melodic thrash albums (1985’s Nasty Savage, 1987’s Indulgence, 1988’s Abstract Fact EP, and 1989’s Penetration Stage) before their demise in the close from the 10 years. Through everything, the primary lineup of Galetti on vocals, Ben Meyer and David Austin on guitars, and Curtis Beeson on drums continued to be surprisingly stable, however the bassist placement seemed to possess some sort of curse onto it.

Initial album bass participant Fred Dregischan was pressured to give up after sustaining a hands damage; his successor for album number 2, Dezso Istvan Bartha, acquired to choose between your band and a big inheritance, and understandably selected the last mentioned; and EP bassist Chris Moorhouse would afterwards expire in 1991 car crash! Richard Bateman, who performed on Nasty Savage’s last record in 1989, presumably acquired the misfortune of, well, executing on Nasty Savage’s last album. A minimum of until a decade afterwards, when all five associates of this last development reunited for the German celebration appearance that resulted in the documenting of a fresh Nasty Savage record in 2004, entitled Psycho Psycho.
