Mediocre Monday is back! I wanted to remind everyone that MM is for mediocre quality recordings. The actual recorded content may (or may not) kick ass.
This is another one from Wayne Vanderkuil’s killer collection of tapes. One of the things that I enjoy while listening to these tapes is the banter between him and friends (John Scharpen, Chris Dodge, Chris Wilder etc) before the show starts. I edited some out, but you may hear some banter.
I never understood why Heathen never achieved the popularity of bands like Exodus or Testament. They were in the scene at the very beginning, they were incredibly talented, and the songs were strong. Just unlucky I suppose.
Here they are, opening for the newly metalized English Dogs on their “Forward into Battle” tour. Not sure how I missed this show, that ED album was a huge favorite of mine at the time.
