Bonus 12" featuring the complete 1987 demo The Reptilliad!
Rather Death Than False of Faith (1988) was the debut album from UK thrash metal group HYDRA VEIN. Rather Death Than False of Faith saw HYDRA VEIN hailed as the UK's answer to SLAYER. The UK thrash scene at the time (and subsequently) had been lagging behind the US and Germany both in quality of output and exposure in the media and Rather Death... was widely considered to be a decent riposte on behalf of the underdog. The album's highlights are undoubtedly the breathless title track, the stop-start "Right To Die" and the high octane "Crucifier".
