Fans of Canadian thrash outfit, Piledriver, should find this album interesting. Piledriver's legendary debut, "Metal Inquisition", was released in the US with an alternate tracklisting from it's Canadian counterpart. The songs "Sex With Satan" and "Sodomize the Dead" were omitted and replaced with "Twister" and "Devil's Lust". Those two tracks were actually culled from the same sessions that yielded this album by Convict. In fact, Convict were never a band...but then again, neither were Piledriver. In truth, both "bands" were merely studio fabrications featuring various session men employed by Canadian metal label, Cobra Records. According to Gord Kirchin (the vocalist on both albums), the label were simply trying to cash in on the thrash craze, which was in its infancy in 1984.
Though none of the tracks have quite the punch of the Piledriver album, there are a small handful of tracks that would've fit nicely alongside the tracks on "Metal Inquisition". All in all, it's a poor effort but Kirchin's snarl does lend credibility to a few of the cuts here. The album slipped into obscurity upon its release and has since never been reissued. Ripped from clean vinyl, this album is at least worth a listen for inquiring minds. Download it!
