TARGET (bel) "Master Project Genesis" LP
Target from Belgium made their wholesome contribution to the evolution of European thrash towards loftier dimensions alongside Mekong Delta, Deathrow, Living Death, Coroner and Paradox.
Target play a brand of thrash that sounds very like early Mekong Delta; the surprising thing is, these Belgians were right there with the Germans as they developed their sound. Target’s first two albums came out in ’87 and ’88, the same years as Mekong Delta’s first two. Not only that, but they were signed to MD mastermind Ralph Hubert’s own Aaarrg Records; clearly he thought they were on to something, and they were!
