FULL ALBUM STREAM: REENTER...THE CYCLONE TEMPLE!

FULL ALBUM STREAM: REENTER...THE CYCLONE TEMPLE!

For a brief time in the early 90's Cyclone Temple was one of the best heavy metal bands on the planet...

So argues No Echo proprietor/Deny the Cross vocalist Carlos Ramirez in the liner notes to the reverential, enlivening reissue of 1991's I Hate Therefore I Am -- available as an import courtesy Divebomb Records International alongside a fascinating collections of demos, early and live tracks, and of the Greed, Home of the Depraved -- and we're streaming the Chicago thrashers' seriously underrated, boundary-defying full-length debut below as evidence that our man is not engaged in any sort of idle smoke blowing: This superior sonic marriage of Spreading the Disease-era Anthrax and circa-Age of Quarrel Cro-Mags, further empowered and set apart by Brian Troch's ferocious Dio-meets-street vocals, remains far ahead of its time in many, many ways.
