Thrust  


Hailing from Chicago, Thrust's first recorded appearance is a rare live split LP with another Chicago band in Lazer House, under the title Rock For Poland. But their real break came with an appearance on Metal Massacre 4, which brought about their proper debut album, Fist Held High, featuring the then-ubiquitous energetic Priest/Maiden style that was prevalent in the mid-eighties. But whatever momentum that debut got them vanished, as they relocated to Los Angeles, apparently recorded a second album that wasn't released, and then broke up in the late eighties. Years later, guitarist Ron Cooke put together a new lineup and a new album, Invitation To Insanity, was released in 2002. More recently, celebrating an anniversary of Fist Held High's release, Metal Blade Records put out Reincarnation, that long-lost second album, in 2015.
