Hydra Vein was one of the many thrash metal acts popping up in England in the mid-'80s, like Sabbat, Xentrix and others. The Brighton-based band featured two former Deathwish brothers and was signed on the strength of the 1987 demo The Reptilliad. This demo featured guitarists Dave Brunt (a.k.a. Dave Deathwish) and Alan Wheatley-Crowe. In a bout of comedy, they get credited as Jack Kartoffel. The debut album was initially due for release in the USA through Three Cherries, but eventually appeared through Mean Machine. After The Dream was more intricate, but failed to generate much excitement and the band threw in the towel.
