RIP Eddie, the master of NYHC vocals, one of my favorite singers of this style. It hasn't been very long since Michael Gibbons had died, who was on the band's first two great albums. Born to Expire is for many reasons a monumental album, not just in metal music, but a damn strong record in general and big favorite for myself with such many great songs -- the album was supposed to be released earlier than it was, but was delayed by some record company bullshit, and I think its importance could've been even bigger as well as its exposure to more people. Both Eddie and Michael gone too soon.

Turn around face me
Gravedigger you better make it three
Turn around face me
The good, the bad, and the ugly!
