"Speak your peace"
Year:  1990
Country:  US
City:  Santa Monica, CA
Label:  Metal Blade
Format:  CD
Tracks:  9
Time:  30 min.
Genre:  rock
style:        Hardcore

When this album came out almost everyone said how much it sucked and how it wasn't "traditional" sounding CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER  but I never looked at it like that. I love CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER, don't get me wrong, but many of their faster songs kind of blur together rhythmwise and this album was refreshing. I've always went the opposite way from the herd and been a "Money talks" kind of guy but I always thought Peace was pretty good. To me it's one of those albums I can listen to all the way through without wanting to turn it off. CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER get one thing in 1990, to make a hardcore album and to be original and different from the majority of the bands adding another elements such as: metal, jazz, experimental, etc. Just nine tracks but I am sure you are going to wonder with this original album.

"Money talks"
Year:  1987
Label:  Relapse
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  12
Time:  33 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Hardcore

The original fast-core merchants, CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER dealt a West Coast hand into the late 80's "crossover" movement, a movement that saw the normally warring armies of punk rock and thrash-metal finally come together into a unified front bent on exposing social injustice and political hypocrisy. Powered by a previously unimagined sense of informed aggression, the band's uncompromising political stance and lightning-fast tempos ultimately proved too harsh for mainstream tastes, but their status as underground legends remains unquestioned.   Breath of dissent pulses forward alongside blasting drums in a cadence of desperate angst borne on a spit-tinged vocal barrage. Deluxe, remastered reissue includes the Stream of Consciousness rehearsal from '88, a live track from their final show with their original line-up and more live tracks from '88 in Houston. CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER was into the fast-core wave like another bands such as: Intense Degree, Lärm, Ripcord, Infest, Spazz, etc.
