Masacre - Sin Piedad
Masacre formed in 1984 and on this, their first full length from 1988 (which may make it the first Peruvian metal full-length, certainly earlier than Hadez's Aquelarre), they perform a classy brand of NWOBHM. The vocalist is absolutely top notch which makes or breaks a band like this for me. He sounds quite a bit like Minoru Niihara of Loudness. Gits are tops as well....just check out the main riff in Sin Piedad, it is absolutely TO DIE FOR!!
This band is still around, but have changed their name to M.A.S.A.C.R.E. and gone in a much shittier modern thrash direction.
