Eudoxis - The Gathering

The Gathering (RAG 010)

Eudoxis were one of the first thrash acts in Canada. The first incarnation of Eudoxis came to life in 1983 in Longeuil, a suburb of the Franco-Canadian city Montreal. The Judas Priest song “Exciter“ had been their blueprint for songwriting and the result was way more aggressive than the british rockers themselves.

In 1986, the 12“-single “Attack from Above“ was released and has since become a searched gem. After some lineup changes, the band started recordings for the full length album “Open Fire“ and it was released in 1991 on vinyl, CD and K7.

Playing a thrash metal-style focused on melodic guitars by the two axemen Larry Scola and Tony Dascola the band unfortunately suffered on the permanent changes of band members, especially on the vocals.

Rawhead - Demonstrations

Demonstrations (RAG 007)

Formed in 1990 near Seattle, Rawhead were pushing a powerful  fast aggressive metal style at a time when a flood of musicians and media descended into the Northwest hypnotized by the “grunge sound.” Long before the “yarl”, there was a dense network of heavy and aggressive music seething in the underground. A few of those bands broke through the hype and hooked up with small distributors and pioneering metal labels. Rawhead flew beneath the radar, independent and unattached to any imprint. Undeterred, they self-released quickly recorded demo cassettes out to local and international DIY networks of metal heads getting the music out into the trenches. In the wake of an overwhelming commercialized wave, Rawhead—like many of the loudest, heaviest, hardest hitting bands from that time in the Northwest—left the evidence in the echoes of those nights on the floors and in the pits of the live shows.
