Old School Florida Metal – Raped Ape

When I was a 14 year old kid just getting into metal, Raped Ape was one of the local bands all the older metal heads use to talk about with respect and reverence. At the time, I wasn’t ready for that style of thrash and death metal. Around 1996 the band effectively disbanded. I hadn’t heard anything about them again

Until today.

A high school friend of mine shared a link to a YouTube video of theirs. All of the memories came back. I went full board listening to everything I haven’t heard in decades.

My favorite album is Terminal Reality. Raped Ape is really in it’s prime with this one. This legitimately sounds like Sepultura around the “Beneath The Remains” era. It’s awesome stuff. Enjoy
