Guest review by
Surf Nicaragua is yet another immortal classic of the late 80's Thrash scene, despite only being an EP release. The pure rush of adrenaline produced by their refined sound is only matched by other immortal releases found in the same period. This is the release responsible for launching Sacred Reich to the main stage of the metal scene at the time, containing varied sounds from their original 'in your face' uncompromising sound from Ignorance to a new, more developed musical edge.

Legendary EP with legendary title track. Phil used to say in interviews (before Awakening, of course) that they wouldn't record anything new because everybody just wanted to hear them play Surf Nicaragua -- and everybody had a point, it's probably the best Sacred Reich song with one of the most memorable riffs in thrash. The other songs don't quite reach the same height as the first song, although "Draining You Of Life" is really good song as well. Worth checking out if only for one song
