Do or Die 1986 Demo

by Viking

Morts Pretty good sound quality and tight playing for a demo! This may be some straightforward good ol' fashioned thrash, but back in '86 this would've been some roof-blowing rock which should have led to somthing much bigger. Don't let any preconceptions you may have mislead you - this recording has not dated and it has more heart than a lot of other thrash recordings out there! A must-have for thrash aficionados! Favorite track: Hellbound.

Hellbound 02:58
Merciless men - hateful victims Doing battle in the night Patriots rally to the cause Some just living to fight Few will win, but countless die They will never see the sun rise Steal from the dead, desecrate Dead eyes have no sight (Chorus) Hellbound Hellbound Hellbound Countless souls falling to hell Eternally living their sins A life of death and butchery All watrriors pay in the end Blade strikes home - the world is black Cannot evade the capture Satan loves men who kill And lusts eternal torture (Chorus) More to fight - the need to kill You're just the devil's token No time to turn wrong to right The hourglass is broken (Solo - Brett) (Solo - Ron) (Solo - Brett) (Solo - Ron) (Chorus)
The stench of rotten meat Lies in the air Reeks the smell of death Corpses' bloody stare Eyes of glassy blood Lurking like the wind Waiting for another life Another life to end Dreams of blood and bowels Send sensations high No meat to be found Nowhere prey to die Scavengers wander Wander 'cross the land Scanning for abandoned kill Scrounging what they can Temptations beyond extremes Existing but none shall ever see Sucking bone until it's dry No wasted piece of meat No time to feed their young Wait for tortured cries A helpless victim Is the one that dies (Solo - Brett) (Solo - Ron) Scrapes the carcass clean Blood is everywhere Consumes every morsel They'd rather die than share
Do or Die 04:34
I know you're taken with a burden And you don't know your head from your tail If you're gonna do it, do it right You've got to hit the head of the nail (Chorus) If it ain't worth dying for it ain't worth doing Aren't you tired of waiting in line? Take us to the top or straight to hell Do or die Make it or break it - that's our battle call That's the way you've got to live your time If you won't do it now, don't do it at all Wasting days is a moral crime (Chorus) (Solo - Brett) (Solo - Ron) Make it or break it - that's our battle call Give it your best or you'll fail If you won't do it now, don't do it at all You've got to hit the head of the nail (Chorus) (Chorus)
