CALIGULA "Technical Aggression" [12" LP, Black Vinyl]
2020 - Thrash/Crossover from United States
Ripping Storm is proud to unveil another treasure until now hidden in the deep underground. CALIGULA formed in 1984 in New York City and were part of that legendary wave when punk and metal bands started crossing each other's territory and playing shows together. CALIGULA raised their banner high playing shows with the likes of WHIPLASH, CARNIVORE, SHEER TERROR, CRUMBSUCKERS, AGNOSTIC FRONT, REST IN PIECES and many more. "Technical Aggression" is their 1987 Demo featuring five songs of fast and violent thrash metal that betrays the hardcore influence only in its speed and in the super-aggressive approach. The LP version features 4 extra never heard before tracks recorded live at the CBGB's in 1987 with an incredibly good sound. The CD version features the whole CBGB's show as bonus and two additional tracks recorded live in 1988, never heard before as well. Mastered at Toxic Basement Studio.
