Reviews for Sentinel – Demo 1986:

“The SENTINEL release “Demo 1986 Plus Live” is one of the most affectionate releases of all time.  It features the demo from 1986 on vinyl (!) and a CD with 6 live songs and 6 songs from the practice room from the magic year with a lot of interesting liner notes, flyers, and pictures.  The sound is far from perfect, but the stuff delivers the Texas Metal Spirit which made bands like WatchTower and Militia such undying cult acts. ”

“Iconic Texas thrash on 7″ vinyl plus CD format! I thought I had a little inkling of Texas thrash-metal. The Texas Metal Underground Records label taught me better with this release. Sentinel, of Austin, were not previously known to me. Okay, the band has released a demo in 1986, has played well in the State of Texas and then eventually sang and disbanded as a murmur. The astonishment at my ignorance keeps so limited. So anyone who wants to bring the charm of old 80’s thrash into the hut and at the same time wants to support an extremely cool label, can safely purchase this release.”
