Strapping Young Lad

Back before there was an internet to kill music with, we used to have to do our bit by trading cassettes; and this is how I first heard Strapping Young Lad, when a grubby TDK90 was shoved into my hand by a tall, excitable and wafro'd chum from a former life.  Side A had SYL's debut Heavy As A Really Heavy Thing on it; side B was full of odd 70's psych-prog.

That tape got rewound a lot.

I'm generally quite wary of metal bands that use keyboards.  SYL get away with it for a number of reasons, the main one being that they are fucking righteous.
