Bad Heaven originally formed in Houston, Texas in 1979. By the mid-1980’s the band was firmly established in the thriving Texas heavy metal scene which included such notable contemporaries as WatchTower, Militia, SA Slayer, and Helstar. The band wrote up-tempo songs with shredding dual-lead guitars in the classic U.S. Metal style, while also drawing influences from such European greats as Judas Priest and Mercyful Fate. A four song demo titled ‘Crystal Dagger’ was recorded in 1986 followed by another four song cassette in 1987 called ‘Dragon Lord’. Despite getting good reviews and attention from well known European publications like RockHard and Metal Forces, the band remained somewhat obscure and the demos have become a bit of a ‘cult classic’ known only to true die-hard underground metal fanatics.
TEXAS METAL UNDERGROUND RECORDS has resurrected these tapes, finally giving these classic songs a proper release on multi-colored vinyl. Each copy includes a thick full color booklet packed with rare photos and an in-depth band interview, and an oversized 11×17 gig flyer reproduction. The ‘Collector’s Edition’ on splatter vinyl is limited to 100 copies and includes a pin-back button for your denim vest and a full color sticker.
