AllMusic Review by

Recorded in 1990, the sole release by Ohio’s Cabal is a vintage thrash metal feast. In the spirit of luminaries including Dark Angel, Nuclear Assault, Exodus, and Slayer, MIDIAN is a seven-track slab of bitter metallic shredding. The band also hints at musical themes throughout the album that foreshadow the eventual rise of metalcore. Cabal, named for a popular Clive Barker novel, was spearheaded by vocalist Killjoy (Viking Crown) before he launched the current incarnation of gorelords Necrophagia. Considered a lost classic by many, MIDIAN sounds as fresh as ever, no small thanks to Red Stream’s production.
