Primal Scream

Primal Scream was the band where Keith Alexander ended up after departing Carnivore. Volume One is a rather generic, albeit energetic, thrash album, with a touch of New York street attitude and perhaps a bit more rock than a pure thrash album might have (Keith himself, in an interview, coined the term "throk" (thrash + rock) in describing their style). A nice album for the thrash completist, if no one else.
