HERESY - Voice Your Opinion

Heresy, along with Ripcord and Napalm Death, helped establish the UK as a premiere source of awesome thrash in the mid to late '80's. Hailing from Nottingham, the band evolved from Plasmid, a band that included Reevsy and Kalv. These two were joined by Reevsy's cousin Steve in 1985, and Heresy was born. The original 3-piece lineup featured Steve on drums, Kalv on bass, and Reevsy taking on guitar and vocals. They hadn't been around for too long before they put songs to vinyl. 1985's Never Healed flexi which was released by Earache (before it was officially Earache). These six tracks were blistering fast thrash with raw production and less metal parts than future recordings. The next record was a split LP with fellow Nottingham punks Concrete Sox. Following the recording, Heresy added a singer so Reevsy would be freer to jump around and go crazy on stage. When this singer refused to go on the tour Heresy had planned with Concrete Sox, they recruited Sox drummer John to fill in. He ended up getting the job permanently after impressing everyone with his crazy jumping ability.
