New York City-based thrash masters’ smash debut album Game Over is now finally available as a vinyl re-issue.Originally released in the terrifying wake of the Chernobyl nuclear accident, the album boasted lethal rippers like "Radiation Sickness," "After the Holocaust" and "Nuclear War" — sheathed in appropriately apocalyptic Ed Repka cover art. But it wasn't all toxic fallout and end-times prophecy. Short hardcore shockers like "Hang the Pope" and "My America" provided some punk-rock levity — along with a cover of the theme from the Mr. Softee ice cream truck.
“Musically, we were listening to a lot of really fast hardcore, like the first D.R.I. album — plus stuff even noisier and nastier than that, like Capitalist Alienation or Siege,” says Nuclear Assault bassist Dan Lilker today. “We were never like, ‘We can't do this or that because that wouldn't be thrash.’”
Game Over is available as a special “Combat Camo” LP. Limited to only 200 copies, order yours today!
