Destroy the Machines

Destroy the Machines by Earth Crisis
Released: Jan 1995
Label: Victory
Earth Crisis' pioneering debut is one of the first true examples of what would become metalcore. Released in 1995, Destroy the Machines finds the Syracuse, N.Y., unit prominently displaying their super-chugging Pantera influence amid the (previously) anti-metal hardcore scene. With decidedly slower tempos than the hyper-speeds that would come to identify metalcore, the album is far more metal than punk and, as such, had a major effect on the kids at the time. It sure must have been fun to mosh to "The Discipline" in 1995.
