That this band is all too infatuated with old school thrash black metal (I am using the word black metal as it was used a dozen of years ago or more) is plain and evident. While there is a strong OBITUARY mood all over the music the riffs are 90% thrash metal in the vein of old CELTIC FROST (the CD even starts with a Tom G. Warrior speech at a festival in ’85). When I talking about OBITUARY I am referring to the stomach gripping roars and the soul lacerating guitar sound that was their unique landmark over years (too commercialized, very little understood band). If you have a remotely nostalgic reminiscence when you listen to your oldest vinyl you can’t shit over this disc. Then again, this is a CD which has really not much right to be recorded as of today, seems like a jump in the past. Now some of you that know me would be prepared to see me kick in their leather and denim wrapped testicles a bruning review. But then this is one of the rare times when I don’t feel like doing this. This band is true to itself. I don’t know if I like the whining and crying over old days when denim was blue and spiked bracers sharp. Especially when I see this attitude from persons which were not aware of this music when I (yeah ME) was banging at SLAUGHTER, SACRIFICE or EXODUS with shoulder length hair, a sleeveless jacket with logos by CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER, SEPTIC DEATH, PROTECTOR, NAPALM DEATH, CARCASS, METALLICA, POSSESSED, SODOM all over it… then they have something which convince me they’re honest in what they do. And they’re the best of the revival bands so far… Thumbs up this time for me. But don’t indulge in my benevolence too much.
