    Here is the 1st demo tape of IDLE THREAT recorded in 1986. If someone have a scan let me know!.
    Tons of credits to the Official Facebook page of the band!. http://www.facebook.com/idlethreatmetal?sk=wall

    Here is a review taken from the Cross of Iron Fanzine #1 (1988):
    IDLE THREAT is a fairly new band on the New York metal scene. Their demo tape, Elmo
    Rocks, is a beautiful recording (8 track) and sports three tunes, none of which sound the same.
    The first track, "Claws", has a distinct'70s sound and riffs away. Their next track, "Run Away",
    is [gasp! -Eds] a love song [taboo! taboo! -Eds]. Yeah, that's right, an honest to God metal
    love song (and it ain't bad either). The last track, "Victim of Yourself", is a definite basher.
    This is a good demo but there's just one smaaaall problem: the vocals. Really high-pitched [2600 Hz?
    -Eds] nasal whines that have an effect similar to that of dog whistles. Other than that, the tape is a
    steal at a mere $2.00.

    Thanks, all. This is Sindo, Idle Threat vocalist. Was Googling the band when I found this site. Wow. People care? That's awesome. Humbled.

    Some news: Idle Threat's original lineup (from this demo) is getting back together to record and release a proper album, including a few new songs and a couple of covers from our heyday. There will also be a handful of shows at some point. The timeframe for all of this is Fall 2015 which will mean that the album will likely be released in early 2016. But there will be teasers, old vids, and possibly some sort of re-release of the demo tapes. We will see. Too many things going on right now to be definite about release dates but...stay tuned.

    Best place to catch up with what's going on is on our Facebook page - www.facebook.com/idlethreatmetal - Be sure to "like" the page. A full-fledged site is also in the works.

    Thanks again, metalheads! Feel free to buzz me with any questions and also feel free to SPREAD THE WORD!
