Tough rhythms and no frills speed riffing, that recalls the teeth-splittin' fare of Slayer covering Black Flag. 2 CD reissue, 48 songs.

In probing the iron clad hardcore speed metal of THE LEAD's historic, career spanning releases and the manner in which the group effortlessly blends old school speed metal and punk, the term "metalcore" is never one that comes to mind.  That term is reserved for bands of labels like Trustkill and Victory.  With all due respect to those labels and bands (and wishing them contnued success!), the style played by THE LEAD is best captured by a genre description rarely used these days"  "crossover" (think D.R.I., The Crucified, Suicidal Tendencies). 

HARDCORE FOR JESUS is a sonic assault from beginning to end with 2 CDs containing:  ’86 self-titled 4 song 7” EP, ’86 Return Fire 19 song (cassette), ’86 Automoloch 6 song (vinyl) 12” EP, ’87 The Past Behind 6 song 12” vinyl EP (1st recorded version, not the R.E.X. recording), and ’89 Burn This Record (R.E.X.) all of which provides a lesson in stamina that invites the listener to question if the band will outlast the listener or vice versa. 

When THE LEAD hit the scene and released their debut self-titled, four song 7’ record on their own, it seemed to many a nearly impenetrable cacophony of sound (which is great for fans of punk-n-thrash!). And, with each release, the band seemed to get heavier and faster.  Over two decades later, it’s easy to see that The Lead’s music was incredibly ahead of its time.  Touring nationally, and opening for such legendary bands as D.R.I. and Suicidal Tendencies only cemented the bands place in the early hardcore/metal scene.  

The ’85 four song debut EP is full of The Crucified-styled aggressive punk that would make any fan of the Sex Pistols, Black Flag, and the Dead Kennedys rejoice.  Music critic, Brian Quincy Newcomb dubbed them the “God Pistols”.  1986’s Return Fire only intensifies with 19 live songs that are harder, faster, and very raw!  Automoloch made it clear the group’s love of pure speed remained in tact.  You even get a cover of Resurrection Band’s “Alienated,” complete with speed metal riffs!   With The Past Behind EP, the band began adding the unusual arrangements, varying tempos, and dissonant nuances that paved the way to a wholly distinctive sound all their own. These experiments (rooted in the works of both Venom and early Slayer) were fleshed out even further on Burn This Record, which took the band deeper into heavy thrash and metal than they had ever gone before.  

THE LEAD was always about old school spirit, and this is a metal band that happens to love thrashing it up!  This is about tough rhythms, and no frills speed riffing, that recalls the teeth-splittin' fare of Slayer covering Black Flag!  Just remember, the beatdowns and thrashing you hear on HARDCORE FOR JESUS have nothing to do with metalcore and everything to do with the real possibility of well, being beaten down and thrashed at a LEAD show...and the guy doing it won't be wearing eyeliner and a My Chemical Romance t-shirt.
