Part III Top 25 of 1988: DEMOLISH Staff (Mike Cervantes)

Here is the 3rd Top 25 of 1988 list.

This time from main staff reviewer extraordinaire:  Mike Cervantes

I have had the pleasure in knowing that DEMOLISH was able to secure Mike’s “metal-enthusiasm” for so many great reviews and we are happy to be able to turn him loose on some key album and demo reviews. Mike is a true metal fan at heart!
