Ruthless  


Ruthless debuted on the infamous indie label Iron Works with their Metal Without Mercy EP in 1984, and then recorded their (until recently) sole full-length album, Discipline Of Steel, two years later. This was classic 80's pre-thrash metal, certainly not the most original of bands (the song titles kind of give that away), but enjoyable in its time. Almost thirty years later (!), the band released They Rise in 2015.
