Editors’ Notes

Birthed in the early ‘80s alongside such thrash-metal pioneers as Slayer and Metallica, Nasty Savage was an integral part of the genre, though they never really surfaced from the underground before disbanding in 1989. Following the band’s Wage Of Mayhem demo that circulated in the speed-metal cassette-tape- swapping community, Nasty Savage recorded their eponymous debut album in 1985 for Metal Blade. Ronnie Galetti’s ferocious vocals played second fiddle to the heated technical intensity of Ben Meyer and David Austin’s adroit fretboard shredding. The minute-long acoustic instrumental “Garden of Temptation” plays like medieval folk without succumbing to renaissance fair clichés. On the adventure-rock of “Gladiator” Galetti slips from high tenor into an athletic falsetto with ease, though he also had a penchant for deep guttural growls as heard on “Dungeon of Pleasure” – later albums would find the band flirting with death metal. “End of Time” finishes the album like the grand finale of a fireworks display.

Not sure why I loved this album so much. Definately NOT for most. Had the right mix of guiters, sex and and destruction. Creative lyrics as well. As I listen I think, yeah this is the 1980's vision of postmodern barbarian. I could see Kurgan from Highlander headbanging to this as he drives the city streets looking for his next victim. Pretty cool.

Great memories

Growing up in Brandon Florida, it's hard not to know bands like Nasty Savage, Bedlam Manor and Savatage! I saw Nasty Ronnie and the band many times and it was always a great show! This album came out around the time of "Kill 'em all" so for me, it's a classic!

Remember them well back in the eighties.

Tampa, FL's Nasty Savage was a member of the first generation of American thrash metal bands, deserving credit alongside the likes of Metallica, Anthrax, and Slayer for helping the genre gain its first footholds in the underground scene, but never really threatening to follow them into fame and fortune. The band was formed in 1983 by natural-born exhibitionist and pro-wrestling enthusiast "Nasty" Ronnie Galetti, who guided Nasty Savage through a pair of demos (1984's Wage of Mayhem and Raw Mayhem...
