Surf and Slam
The band's first album for a major label, How Will I Laugh Tomorrow... leaves the Tendencies' punk rock trappings in the dust for more straight-up thrash metal, with expansive, purely metal songs and the sort of clean recording only the big bucks can buy. The shift in the band's sound can also be attributed to new guitarist Mike Clark. Regardless of the more streamlined approach, the skate kids ate this one up. "Trip at the Brain" says it all; fans of the old stuff are directed to "Suicyco Mania."
