There are many ‘hardcore’ bands in the early to mid 80’s that were well known because of
their politics ; stage show or personalities offstage. Then there were bands that just were out
there to play hard, fast intense ‘hardcore’ and knock you off your feet by the sheer power of
their music and have a blast at it. This would be Massachusetts’ CANCEROUS GROWTH.
Starting out by playing hast ‘hardcore’ and gradually getting even faster and more thrash as
time went on. They put out their first LP Late for the Grave on ‘Ax/ction Records’ (A label
run by the drummer ‘Charlie Infection’ ; who also played in PSYCHO and then followed it
up with a second one entitled ‘hmmlmmlum…’ as well as two 7”s, Today’s Society and Live at
Last. As well as appearing on We Got Power Part 2 & 3 and Welcome to AX/CTION Island
compilations. CANCEROUS GROWTH even attracted the attention of the then newly formed Nuclear Blast Records who did German versions of CANCEROUS GROWTH’s first
two LP’s complete with bonus tracks!
