Uploader Notes: Mad Poltergeist were formed in Genova from the ashes of Henker
(another thrash metal band), they had an anti-Christian attitude, but devoted to the story in different keys-from comic to tragic of the theater iconography that revolves around the way people present certain aspects of the religion, while musically the Bay Area thrash was a clear and constant reference point. The funny and irreverent attitude of the band was also manifested by the choice of the artwork of Mad 'n' Damn,it is(if memory serves me correctly) none other than "The School of Athens" by Raffaello, in which the artist - populated it of all the philosophers and thinkers known for theiratheist choice in an ironic rather than profane key.
After a demo MP signed a deal with Metalnews Records(a short lived labelrun by A.C. Wild of Bulldozer) for this EP,note that the record contained a picture of Dylan Dog(a famous italian comic strip by Bonelli publisher) now considered a collector's item, and the fact that the band struck a deal with the Bonelli important collaboration (Dylan Dog number 30 is titled Poltergeist), who saw published an article about them before their live performance at the Dylan Dog Horror Fest. In addition,a 45rpm must be attached to a number of comics, resulting in mega publicity for the band,with a view to a full lenght album. The project,however,never materialized because of the mental disorders that affected the poor Franco Cedro,which eventually led him to suicide,causing a human tragedy and the end of the band;picture scans included in the rar,enjoy!!!
