Friday Morning Metal – Scanner – Buy or Die

I did a Friday Morning Metal for Scanner a while back. And Spotify decided I should hear some more. This time a remaster of Buy or Die, which exudes the best of 80’s speed metal. And the video has even more of it!

The vocals have the great combo of crazy falsetto & aggro that keeps a metal band from sounding too operatic. The drums are frenetic and the chugga guitars give way to a super noodly guitar solo.

Oh also, a band yelling CASH OR CREDIT in the middle of a song is just goofy enough to be great.

So go grab your favorite denim vest, blowout your hair, and get ready to rock!
