Bust a Nut cd cover

Tesla

Bust a Nut

This was a great album that just came out at a bad time for metal. In 1994, almost all of the metal bands had already broken up or gone into hiding, but Tesla came back with a vengeance. Bust a Nut was a fantastic cd, made more so by itís direct defiance of the musical landscape and the bandís uncompromising refusal to change their sound. Shine Away, Cry and Rubberband are always the songs I remember most, but this whole cd was pretty powerful. Unfortunately, even though Tesla never really fit into the superficial mold that many other 80ís metal bands were accused of, they were never the less victims of the same back lash. And poor sales and rumored problems within the band lead to Teslaís break-up shortly after. --Scott
