Coming into being at a time when thrash metal bands were frankly a dime a dozen, New Jersey's Gothic Slam left barely a notch in heavy metal history with their two quite decent but not exactly revolutionary albums, 1988's Killer Instinct and 1989's Just a Face in the Crowd. In fact, their greatest contribution to the genre may have been the introduction of talented drummer Dave Chavarri -- later in demand with Laaz Rockit, M.O.D., Pro-Pain, and Ill NiƱo; since remaining bandmembers Daniel Gomes (vocals), Klaude Ryker and Bill Genese (guitars), and J.T. (bass) were never heard from again.
