Intrinsic’s 30 Year Anniversary of Recording Debut


Legendary Power/Thrash Titans Reminisce on Anniversary of Recording Debut


Formed in 1984, the legendary California-based power/thrash titans Intrinsic are celebrating the 30th anniverary of the recording of their debut, eponymously titled album, Intrinsic, which dropped 1987 through the now-defunct No Wimp. It was eventually reissued in 2008 through the appropriately named Retrothrash Records.

The album garnered quite a bit of acclaim in the metal press and radio at the time of its release, including a rare 5K review in Kerrang!, the biggest metal magazine in the world at the time. The band went on to release an EP in 1990, Distortion of Perspective, and their second full length, Closure, in 1996, before disbanding.

To commemorate this anniversary, the band has released a short video with rare clips of the band recording the album.

This comes hot off the heels of their 2015 album, Nails, which was actually recorded in the early ’90s but never released until Dive Bomb Records got a hold of it when the band reformed. You can check out our review of the album here. If you’ve never dug into Intrinsic’s work, consider this your motivation.
