Raven – “Crash Bang Wallop” (1982)

This four song EP makes a nice adjunct to Raven’s 1982 full length Wiped Out.  These guys were just insane, almost to the point of chaotic on their early records.  Raven were quite possibly the heaviest band in the world in 1982 (Anvil was up there, too).  Coke-nosed and booze-breathed, this NWOBHM platter ain’t for the faint of heart.  So prepare to have your nipples electroshocked with high voltage rock and roll!  This EP included three non-LP cuts in Rock Hard, Run Them Down, and the title track.  Firepower from Wiped Out was also included.  All tracks ridiculous with ear-raping intensity.  My score: B
