34 Years Ago: GISM release Detestation


Churning Metal-punk, or perhaps even speed-Metal, depending on where you draw the distinction. GISM are undoubtedly an HM band who've been heavily influenced by hardcore, but the music is so intense and the vocals so ominous that even I'm in a state of shock. These guys make VENOM sound like KNACK, especially on side 1. (JB)
