THE EXPLOITED "The Massacre" /CD/



Re-release of the sixth full-length album by the legendary British Punk/Hardcore/Thrash Metal/Crossover band.
Already more than a decade into their existence by the time of this release, legendary Scottish Punks gave up some of their most intense material on "The Massacre". The release marked a distinct change from the more dyed-in-the-wool traditional Punk Rock sound of their earlier work to a Crossover sound that incorporated Thrashier guitar playing and a more Metallic edge overall. The result was one of their most commercially successful albums ever, with brutal and blunt jaunts like "Fuck Religion", "Now I'm Dead" and "Police Shit".
Spawned in Scottish town of Edinburgh in 1980, The Exploited were created as an answer to the ever-present “No Future” attitude of the time, as opposed of just being unemployed, those four fellas decided to kick ass and if they’d be without a proper job, at least they’d be doing it with some style! Gathering ex-squaddie Wattie Buchan (vocals), Big John Duncan (guitar), Dru Stix (drums) and Gary McCormack (bass), The Exploited have been a raw and rough outlet right from the start, not diluting their music for public consumption. The band has garnered a sizable hardcore audience in the U.K. for its anti-authoritarian stance and criticism of the government, particularly in the Reagan/Thatcher era. 
Released in 1990 through Rough Justice, "The Massacre" would become the most successful record The Exploited has done so far. Written and produced by Wattie himself, the record takes off with an intro taken from the movie “Faces Of Death”.
This is pure anger, spat out with an almost unequalled fury! This is Punk!!
