Getting Ignorant

When I set out to pick up some original pressings for Metal records, one of the ones that I really wanted to get my hands on was the first Sacred Reich LP.

Back in 1987, I was headed into my last year of High School, and my life revolved around Thrash. I lived on a steady diet of Venom, Kreator, Exciter, and Slayer. The faster and more obnoxious the better. The first Sacred Reich album certainly topped my list at the time. Damn, that thing is so aggressive...with lyrics that took a strong atheist stance, as well as as the Dead Kennedy's lyrically influenced Administrative Decisions...this album was certainly a favorite.

Original US press on Enigma/Metal Blade Records. A pretty good pick up at $10.

Remember that time I posted this record record on Vinyl Noize and was accused of being a right wing nazi fascist?
Those were good times.

Nice pick up!

I had never seen that VN post, Doug. Just dug through the posts to find it. Ha...that is too funny.
