CANCEROUS GROWTH "Late for the Grave" LP


Boston had it’s “Crew” bands – SSD, Negative FX, the FU’s, DYS. Then, there was Jerry’s Kids, The Freeze, The Proletariat and the quite awesome Siege,Western Mass’ Deep Wound (later to morph into Dinosaur Jr.) and the Motorhead-obsessed Outpatients contributed their respective brands of earslaughter to Massachusetts’ hardcore sect circa 80-85.Then there was the increasingly speed-fixated Psycho (whose guitarist Johnny X did an all-too-brief stint on the porno circuit); those lovable, pro-wrestling goombas,The PTL Klub and the mighty Cancerous Growth. Starting out by playing fast ‘hardcore’ and gradually getting even faster and more thrash as time went on, CANCEROUS GROWTH put out their first LP Late for the Grave on Ax/ction Records, following it up with a second one entitled ‘hmmlmmlum…’ as well as two 7”s (Today’s Society and Live at Last) as well as appearing on We Got Power Part 2 & 3 and Welcome to AX/CTION Island compilations. CANCEROUS GROWTH even attracted the attention of the then newly-formed Nuclear Blast Records who did German versions of CANCEROUS GROWTH’s first two LP’s complete with bonus tracks! After being out of print for nearly 30 years we are bringing back this classic yet humble early- mid 80’s hardcore/Thrash Metal band first album. Not only has the audio been completely restored and remastered, but it also contains a brand new cover with original art work as well a a brand new inner sleeve complete with lyrics and flyers!
