Bay Area-style Thrash Metal from a cult obscure 80s US band. R.I.P.SAW were formed back in 1986 and recorded few but great tunes of 80s Thrash Metal. These songs were recorded by Mark Shelton of MANILLA ROAD but never officially released, even in the form of a demo tape... until now. The band also opened for MANILLA ROAD back in these days.
After many years, R.I.P.SAW (having also members of BORN OF FIRE) reunited for a documentary that was presented in independent film festivals, about their youth and the dreams they had. After the documentary, they decided to record some new songs also, and altogether, along with the old material, are presented in this release.
