Assassin - The Upcoming Terror - June 3, 1987
Assassin had a pretty typical German sound -- fast, aggressive, abrasive -- and they executed it pretty well. The unfortunate part of it is that they don't sound all that unique when compared to the Kreators and Destructions of the world. If they're not going to be faster or meaner than their countrymen (or even their counterparts across the pond), then what's the point? The Upcoming Terror is an enjoyable listen, but not a lot of the stuff they throw at you sticks after hitting 'stop'.
Standouts: Nemesis, Bullets
