Leeway  


Leeway is often described as a crossover (hardcore/metal mix) band, lumped in with fellow New Yorkers such as Crumbsuckers, but based on the 1988 debut Born To Expire, this is classic late-eighties thrash, with barely any hardcore influences whatsoever. Reportedly their style broadened on the later releases (not reviewed here).
