Looking for Slayer videos on YouTube I came across this: “Reek of Putrefaction,” by Carcass.
The cassette also introduced me to Earache Records, the grey lady of grindcore labels. In fact, it was while rummaging through a bin of cheap Earache cassettes at the first big Metal/Hardcore festival in Worcester that I came across Sleep‘s enduring classic, Holy Mountain, originally issued on Earache.
I paid like $3 for that thing and then listened to it about a ten thousand times.
