Hydra Vein  


One of the earlier British thrash bands of the eighties, Hydra Vein was formed by the Maddison brothers, who also played for a time in another Brit band, Deathwish (one of several connections with that band -- guitarist Dan Ranger was the brother of Deathwish bassist Stuart Ranger, and that band's guitarist, Dave Brunt, played on the first Hydra Vein demo). They signed to the tiny Metalother label and released Rather Death Then False Of Faith, a quite decent Slayer-esque thrash album even with the low-budget production. The album got fine reviews but not a lot of distribution, leading the band to leave for the RKT label for their second and last album, After The Dream. Unfortunately that album never got the same interest as the debut, and Hydra Vein disbanded soon after its release.
