The Plasmatics

Metal Priestess

With their legal troubles in Milwaukee and Cleveland, The Plasmatics released the EP "Metal Priestess." This was the first time that the band began to move beyond the thrash-punk sound and to incorporate heavy metal into their music. The music is amazing, as always, plus it features live versions of "Sex Junkie" and "Masterplan" from their previous record, "Beyond the Valley of 1984." One of the most interesting things about the band is their total inability to keep a bassist or a drummer for any length of time. --Anonymous

“Day after day, day after day, we stuck nor breath nor motion. As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean. Water, water everywhere and all the boards did shrink. Water, water everywhere nor any drop to drink.”
