This Suffolk-based UK label was also behind the CCG Demo Series-series I believe. An interview with label boss Daryl Turner in Snakepit Magazine #21 reveals the acronym stood for Crazy Mother Fuckin' Thrashers.
|CMFT 1||V/A||UK Thrash Assault||LP||1989||More info here.|
|CMFT 2||Brutal Obscenity||It's Because Of The Birds And The Flowers..||LP/CD||1989||US Crossover lodged soundwise somewhere between Dehumanizers and Cryptic Slaughter but with neither the charm of the former nor the Sick of the latter.|
|CMFT 3||Xyster||In Good Faith...?||LP||1989||The TED HEATH demo + the "Children Of Violence" and "In Cold Blood" demos are The Great Hidded Secret of olde UK extreme Metal and why no-one has reissued them yet is beyond me. Even though it's not that terribly different the debut LP doesn't quite manage to capture the magic, mainly because they've wimped down a bit on the vocals ...and the naked-truth-syndrome: What happens when production values start crawling out of the mud, no longer leaving much to the imagination...|
|CMFT 4||Pendemia||Narcotic Religion||LP||1990||Full-speed-ahead, Nuclear Assault-type Thrash fastfood for uncritical, die-hard fans of the genre who won't mind the warbling vocals.|
|CMFT 5||Moral Crusade||An Act Of Violence||LP||1990||Another Slayer. Another 90's Slayer in fact, which I guess predates the real 90's Slayer but does that really count as originality?|
|CMFT 6||Tiamat||Summerian Cry||LP/CD||1990||Parts of this album is better than most anything the Swedish Death Metal scene had produced on vinyl or CD at the time. As opposed to Entombed, Dismember, Unleashed etc these guys had some Classic Metal-appeal + also a grimey SoAm/EastEuro-vibe.|
|CMFT 7||Mystic Force||Take Command - The Demo Years||LP||1990||These early-'rÿche/Crimson Glory-wannabes makes for a nice change of pace at the end of a C.M.F.T.-marathon evening.|
