2. A symphonic black metal band from China
3. A hardcore punk band from the United States
4. A thrash metal band from Costa Rica

1. Heresy was a fast politically-themed band hailing from a tiny village outside of Stoke-on-Trent, UK. Originally called Plasmid , the band was formed by Reevsy (guitar/vocals) and his 15 year old cousin Steve, on drums . After one Plasmid demo, they joined up with newly recruited bassist Kalv from Nottingham, playing some local shows under their newly chosen, more “metallic ” moniker - Heresy. Many of the early shows were booked by local HC promotor , and later Earache founder -Dig.

Influenced by Discharge and US Hardcore bands like M.D.C, D.R.I and especially Siege. They entered the local Nottingham no-budget Pavilion Studios just before Xmas 1985 to record the Never Healed flexidisc. With Reevsy on guitar and vocal duties,and Kalv on bass, the band laid down 6 tracks in barely a day. The flexi was released by Kalv and Dig’s DIY jointly funded label ( the name “Earache” was added to the label at the last minute) and all 3000 copies sold out right away. The six tracks included were blisteringly fast thrash with non-existant production, but the proto-metalcore riffs in the songs attracted metal fans to the band as well as the usual hardcore punk crowd.
