WICKED MYSTIC - Mend Or End Re-mastered CD
The rawer Thrash-phase of Dutch 90's thrash metal band Wicked Mystic. The band started in 1989 influenced by Annihilator and other raw but technical thrash metal bands. After some demos, they released theur debut-album Mend or End in 1994. In style and sound influenced by Sepultura - Arise, Testament, Annihilator and the likes. They did it well and did an European tour with Overkill. In 1996 they released another demo in a style that hinted Forbidden as well as an influence, but before the demo was released the band broke-apart, to continue with a different line-up and a style-change to a more melodic Thrash/Power/Speed Metal fushion, resulting in 2 more albums in the early 2000s.
But their thrash-roots remained and in 2012 the band did a reunion in the old line up and releasing an album with re-recorded old songs plus some new songs. This one off reunion pleased the old thrashers-fanbase, but there remained a call for re-releasing the old recordings. What happened in 2019: A remastered version of the Mend or End album, a remastered version of the unreleased 1996 demo and a selection of songs from the demos 1991-1992.
