A Fist in the Face of God presents... Full Speed Ahead Vol IV - A Mix by Hades & Sergeant Salsten

  So a full five years and some change (LOTS of that) have passed since I last posted a mix from the Full Speed Ahead series and, looking back at the intro I wrote for that in 2016, it couldn't ring truer now:
"You know, with every year that passes, the 80s get further away. Luckily for me, missing the 20th century is almost a worldwide hobby these days, and what better way to roll back some musical years than by blasting your ears with the shrieking sounds of 1980s speed metal."
Ah, how we all now wish for those simpler times, but rejoice we shall with this latest offering from Hades of Incinerator/Omega, alongside past mix-master himself, Sergeant Salsten of Norwegian thrash metal kings, Deathhammer. I will let the lads and the mix itself do the rest of the talking. Enjoy.

Hades Omega: And here we are again, bleeding your ears and giving you a tachycardia with a lethal dose of speed fuckin' metal!
This time I gathered forces with the one and only Sergeant Salsten. I've known this nefarious character for almost a decade now and I consider him a HUGE speed metal devotee, so I invited him to join me and select a few killer tunes for the new Full Speed Ahead compilation.
We chose mostly old and hidden diamonds, but also a few newer bands which totally deserve people's attention and support.
Now crack a cold one open and play the mix on a volume loud enough so that your neighbours can also enjoy it!

Sergeant Salsten: Bon appetite. Here are some nasty speedballs for all the hectic ones! Speed metal takes no prisoners and is all about raw energy.
There's a couple of German ones here, of course, since they are total Speedlandia.
Lots of gems there, but there's speed in heaps of cracks. MAUSOLEUM RECORDS FOREVER.
Slash your ears!
