Pot Anyone hear of DeathSquad? (Late 80s-90s Oly WA)

I recently came across this older band. It turns out they were local (Olympia Washington) and played here around the late 1980s and early 90s. Never knew of these guys until I came across an old YouTube video from the 80s with a flyer for the band. I wasn't born till 91 so Its before my time but pretty cool for being local. But, I dig it.

Here'a a full album:

They have a really good energy to them, very fast-paced but they don't sacrifice the groove elements. For the most part I just heard prototype thrash metal, but god damn some of those solos, e.g., about 8 minutes in, ripped my face off. If I was into metal in the nineties, I would have damaged my brain to this.

It's a decent album. I enjoyed it.

Cult of Fire's Čtvrtá Symfonie Ohně is a swell album.

I'd never heard of this band before, but I listened to this album. They have that sound. By which I mean, they are one of those bands that are better than average (average being mediocre) in a respective style, but they don't really add anything new. This is by no means garbage, but I suspect this will only find fans in people who are primarily dedicated to this style of metal.

That's what I thought too.

They played a reunion show not too long ago with a female vocalist. Apparently, the lead singer passed away not too long ago from I believe some form of cancer?

I'm just surprised I found these guys, and were local to me and have a good sound. Now days around here its damn hard to find a band that plays that well.
