70000 Tons of Metal - The World's Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise

Sheer Terror Releasing Limited Box Set

Graffiti-covered subway trains, the crack epidemic, squeegee men... New York City was a very different place in the 1980's. But all that urban decay made the perfect breeding ground for a pack of groundbreaking musical movements that would take the industry by force.

Lurking in its darkest back alleyways was the New York Hardcore scene with Sheer Terror at the genre's cutting edge. Founded in 1984, Sheer Terror melded the ultra-aggressive hardcore punk of Discharge and The Nihilistics with the low-end of proto-metal behemoths Black Sabbath and Motörhead.

Starting with 1989's debut album "Just Can't Hate Enough," and going deep into the next decade, Sheer Terror released a slew of classic recordings that influenced a generation of musicians, from Pantera to Hatebreed.

Now, after years of being out-of-print, pioneering NYHC label Blackout! Records will be making all Sheer Terror's original releases available again in a one-time only box set pressing of high quality colored vinyl and featuring tons of bonus material.

This release will only be available by pre-order online and will not be in stores. Sign up through PledgeMusic.com here. A lyric video for the classic song "Cup O' Joe" has also been created and is being is available for streaming below.
