Various Artists: Speed Metal

Album Notes

For a budget-priced ten-track collection, Speed Metal is actually a pretty good sampler of the state of the genre circa 1991. The collection doesn't strictly play by the rules, including cuts such as Motorhead's "Ace of Spades," which were undeniably influential but not speed metal per se. Neverthelesss, this is a reasonably effective overview, considering its price, containing cuts by Testament, Death Angel, Flotsam & Jetsam, Metal Church, Excel, Anacrusis and Pantera. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
