Dry Heave records are very proud to announce the release of a limited picture disc album of legendary old school thrashers Nuclear Assault live at CBGB's way back in 1986.

The tracks were recorded off the sound desk at CBGB's onto tape and 1986 stored by drummer Glenn Evans until he unearthed the recording from his personal archive. Evans has personally mixed and mastered the set up to a very high standard at his home studio.

This 10 track recording pre-dates the release of their debut album 'Game Over' and also includes 'Meteors' and 'Satan's Call' which were never officially recorded, either on a demo, LP or as B sides. The record's insert contains a photo shoot inside the venue, live shots and old school gig flyers from the bands early years.

'Nuclear Assault - Live At CBGB's' is a limited edition picture disc will be released via Dry Heave Records on Monday 11th August and only 500 will be released.

One of the Big Apple's few challengers (along with Anthrax and Overkill) to the Bay Area dominance of all things Thrash Metal, Nuclear Assault became immediate contenders due to the cumulative sum of its parts -- not to mention, their extreme nature and their ability to back it up with solid musicianship.

Produced by Metal stalwart Alex Perialas, their first album, 1986's 'Game Over', was regarded as a breath of fresh air with its potent speed Metal tinged with hardcore overtones. In the process, fans and critics alike instantly accepted it and the band was quickly off and gaining momentum.
