With a cover referencing the Hare Krishna religion, you might not expect the hardcore punk sound of New York band Cro-Mags, but that's exactly what you'll get in their second album, BestWishes. Released in 1989, this album showed a complete transformation in style from the sharp bursts of hardcore sound that exemplify their first album, 1986's The Age of Quarrel.
Best Wishes saw Cro-Mags expand their sound to include more thrash metal sounds, as well as expanding the length of tracks from short, staccato bursts to longer tracks with a more heavy metal flavor. After the departure of their lead singer, Harley Flanagan stepped up into the role of vocalist and his different style helped push the band in a more metal direction.
