Acrophet  


Acrophet was a young Wisconsin-based thrash band that formed in the early eighties (apparently the average age of the band was 17 when Corrupt Minds was released in 1988, and they formed several years earlier), mixing aggressive thrash with a slight hardcore influence (not quite a crossover band, but close). On one hand thrash was all the rage during this time period and Acrophet was lumped in with that crowd (fairly or not), though on the other hand their more frantic style (including the hardcore stylings) did gain them a bit of respect and they have been noted as influences to later bands. Two albums were released, and the band broke up in the early nineties while working on a third.
