This awesome shirt comes from the Toronto Metal Massacre, a Canadian music festival from the late 80s that showcased some of the biggest thrash metal bands the Great North had to offer. This shirt is from the first iteration of the fest, held in 1988, and the back details the lineup, which consisted of Razor, Sacrifice, Whiplash, Primal Scream, Blessed Death, and At War. While the festival was designed specially to appeal to Canadian metal fans, several bands from the lineup were from America, the exceptions being Razor and Sacrifice.
Both groups were considered to be part of Canada's "big four" defining thrash metal bands, right alongside Voivod and Annihilator, and they each emerged around the same time, back in 1983. While 1988 saw the release of Razor's fifth full length album, titled Violent Restitution, Sacrifice spent time that year gearing up to record a new demo that would be released in 1989. Razor and Sacrifice would also tour together in the early 90s after the release of their respective albums, Shotgun Justice and Soldiers of Misfortune.
Fits like a modern unisex adult medium. Neck and sleeves have been cut.
