Trauma  


Trauma is notable mainly for being the early band of Metallica bassist Cliff Burton. The band (with Burton) appeared on Metal Massacre II in 1982 but by the time of their debut album, Cliff had already been recruited away. That album, Scratch And Scream, was passable early 80's pre-thrash metal at best, and the band disappeared soon afterward. In 2013 the band, led by two core members from the old days, came back into being, and a new album was released in 2015.
