Music to Kill By
M-Theory Audio, the new label from Marco Barbieri (Century Media, Metal Blade, Ill Literature), and Metal War Prod., are both proud to bring you this fantastic reissue from Las Vegas' classic thrash metal band Papsmear. Music to Kill By compiles the band's early demos with tons of rare and unreleased material in a great looking package. Papsmear were one of the early, leading thrash metal bands of the mid-'80s. Hailing from Las Vegas the band released some seminal recordings, which garnered them rave reviews in the metal press, a spot on New Renaissance's Speed Metal Hell compilation and shows with DRI, Dark Angel, Hirax, COC, Sacred Reich, MDC and more. Despite an offer from Metal Blade Records the band wound up falling apart with vocalist Tony Costanza ultimately moving to the SF Bay Area and being one of the founding members of Machine Head before going on to play drums with Crisis, Crowbar and more. This CD/DVD collection pays homage to the band and will show how vital and cutting-edge they were and should be enjoyed by both old and new school fans of thrash.
