The Execute - The Antagonistic Shadow LP - 1988

From what I read on the liner notes this would appear to be The Executes one and only full length. Most people would remember them from the Split 12" with German punk's Inferno released on Pushead's label. This is way less thrashy than their earlier work and as with Gastunk they seem to have taken a large influence from UK heavy weights like the Southern Death Cult and Killing Joke. This is a great record for those sombre moments, it has a lot of really nice guitar work and some awesome vocals. "The Human of the Ghoul" now is that an awesome song title or what!!

Wow, I can't believe that I didn't know about this record! Looking forward to listening to it. If I'm not mistaken, both Baki and Baby had left the band by '85 to concentrate on GASTUNK, right? At least I don't recognize them in that group photo....
