NUCLEAR ASSAULT (USA/NY)


With the mid eighties Thrash explosion, New York's NUCLEAR ASSAULT leapt to the fore due to the prime motivating force of ex-ANTHRAX bassist Dan Lilker. Although the gangly, mop-topped bassist had actually been a co-founder of ANTHRAX, having named the band and been pivotal in the crafting of debut album 'Fistful Of Metal', he severed ties with ANTHRAX in 1983, due to disagreements with then vocalist Neal Turbin. It took two and a half years to assemble his next project, the far rawer NUCLEAR ASSAULT. In the interim, Lilker had involved himself with the commercially successful spoof Metal project of S.O.D. ('Stormtroopers of Death') alongside ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian and M.O.D. vocalist Billy Milano. The group's first full-length set, the Alex Perialas produced 'Game Over' recorded at Pyramid Sound Studios in Ithaca, New York during May 1986, saw issue the same year.
