About this copy: This copy of Paradise Lost is an original pressing on the Texas-based Jack Leg label.

Background:   According to Wikipedia, Dresden 45 was a hardcore punk and crossover thrash band from Houston, Texas, also known as D’45 and variantly, D45. They were one of the first hardcore bands to implement a guitar-driven heavy metal sound into their music. Like other Houston bands Dirty Rotten Imbeciles and Verbal Abuse, Dresden 45 played a breathless, high-speed type of hardcore punk now referred to as thrashcore.
