Archive release by the metal band. By 1990, San Luis Obispo thrash act, Intrinsic, had two releases under its belt (1987's Intrinsic LP and 1990's Distortion Of Perspective EP). But while recording what would become their sophomore album, Nails, the direction of the music industry was shifting. The industry had a "sound" they were wanting and if it did not replicate Metallica's Black Album, Pantera or Helmet most bands were pretty much out of luck. Having self-financed their new progressive thrash opus, Intrinsic quickly found themselves out of step with the industry. So the Nails sessions where shelved for nearly 25 years… until now.
