(Playlist) EXCITER (82-92) - In 40 Minutes


As an impressionable young 22 year old, I remember witnessing legendary Canadian speed merchants Exciter live at the Masonic Temple in Toronto on the Violence & Force tour. It was an eye opening experience that forever launched me into the metal underground, eschewing the large scale spectacle for more intimate settings. Off to the clubs I went!


Here, The Mighty Decibel curates the best 40 minutes of early Exciter for your headbanging pleasure. Behold the greatest speed metal band of all time.
