Item Description


Primer:Here at Speed Tribes we're offering only prime examples of rare and obscure records. This auction is no exception, witha pristine, sealed copy of the legendaryTriple Forte EP. Recorded in 1983, this sought after heavy metal grail is a perfect example of what was brewing in Wisconsin's Fox Valley while nobody was looking. Dark, heavy and obviously influenced byNWOBHM and itspredecessors, Triple Forte's sole effort predates Raven Bitch--their well-known thrash/power brothers to the south--by many years sinceTear Down the Wallswas released in 1987. With songs like "Sinful Ax" and "Black Mirror," Triple Forte is one of the missing links in americanmetal.The original private press run of this record was somewhere south of 500 copies; however, many were destroyed in the bassist's flooded basement. As a consequence, this rare artifact of midwestern origins almost never sees the light of day.Our particular copy is sealed and in absolutely perfect mint condition. All the corners are sharp and there is no damage to the outer sleeve whatsoever. Moreover, this record has been stored upright in a dry,temperate location since the 1980's--immaculate dead stock.
