CD review ANGELUS APATRIDA “Cabaret de la Guillotine”

Veröffentlicht am 12. Mai 2018 von Markus W. in Angelus Apatrida, News, Thrash Metal, Century Media, Power Metal, CD Review, Heavy Metal

CD review ANGELUS APATRIDA “Cabaret de la Guillotine”

(7/10) The first thing that I have to face when starting a review is the name of the band I‘m writing about, esp. when it‘s about bands haven‘t had on the radar till now. Angelus Apatrida is such a band. With all respect, the name is a curveball to me, hard to keep in mind - „Angel.... what“. Maybe it‘s only me older brain that struggles with keeping the name in mind.

As said, I missed the guys from Spain up till now and you might have the same. The starting point of Angelus Apatrida was back in 2000 – a new millennium, a new band. The guys premiered in 2006 with “Evil Unleashed” and four more deliveries followed to date. 2018 is the year of Angelus Apatrida’s next strike, entitled “Cabaret de la Guillotine”.

Angelus Apatrida is, according to the label info sheet, a thrash metal outfit. Now doubt, aggressive metal riffing, is a crucial pillar for the band‘s sound.  Songs like „Ministry of God“ are excellent tracks, reminding partly of thrash metal icons like Testament and Destruction.

Next to pure sonic aggression, Angelus Apatrida builds in some melodic power metal moments, like in „The Die is Cast“. However, the majority of songs ignite a thrash metal inferno with blistering leads and harsh vocals.

The thing is though that the approach isn‘t really new. I never got the feeling of something really unique but I also must say that I haven‘t missed ‘new’. The energy provided by this powerhouse is the real benefit and that‘s what‘s count. I would say, good work in known territory.

CD review WIEGEDOOD "De Doden Hebben het Goed"

Veröffentlicht am 2. Mai 2018 von Markus W. in Wiegedood, Black Metal, Century Media, News, Thrash Metal, De Doden Hebben Het Goed

CD review WIEGEDOOD "De Doden Hebben het Goed"

(8/10) Belgium Wiegedood debut in 2015 with an album entitled "De Doden Hebben Het Goed". The album was the beginning of a morbid trilogy that finds its end with part 3 of this three-piece delivery. At the same album the newest delivery is the first album the band releases via Century Media, which could act as a springboard for this trio to reach a much wider group of metal heads.

I must admit that I missed the first two chapters of this trilogy, which means that I was curiously looking forward to what will hit my ears.

„De Doden Hebben Het Goed III“ (dutch for „The Dead Have it All Good“) is a blistering black metal attack that gives you a cold shiver. The trio doesn‘t need more than four songs to unleash a hellish vibe that comes with an unexpected and pitiless intensity. Wiegedood combines the anarchy of punk, the aggressiveness of thrash and the morbidity of black metal to something that opens gates right to the abyss. The cold shiver and the purgatorial heat could be brought together in a much better ay than what this record offers.

What‘s amazing with "De Doden Hebben Het Goed III“ is the ability of this Belgium trio to keep a level of suspense throughout. Sometimes I get annoyed by some monotonus black metal releases, listening to the samething only different from beginning to end. Not in this case. Wiegedood have the ability to write songs up to 12 minutes in length and still keep a level of suspense that excites. 

Wiegedood's third strike is a morbid and ruthless album that fascinates by it‘s simplicity and mercilessness. Check it out.

CD review MISSION IN BLACK "Anthems of a Dying Breed"

Veröffentlicht am 29. April 2018 von Markus W. in Mission In Black, Anthems of a Dying Breed, El Puerto Records, Power Metal, Thrash Metal, Heavy Metal, News, CD Review

CD review MISSION IN BLACK "Anthems of a Dying Breed"

(7/10) Mission In Black is a rather new metal outfit hailing from Germany. Now 'new' might not be fully correct since it was in 2010 when a first demo has been recorded, followed by some shows, supporting bands like Brainstorm and Mystic Prophecy. 

It's five musicians that started their 'mission in black'. Becky Gaber (v), Daniel Tschoepe (g), Andy Flache (d), Martin Grimm (g) and Hannes Jäger (b), that's Mission In Black and some names sound probably familiar. Some guys have been part of South German thrashers Spellbound while Martin Grimm played at Mystic Prophecy. 

The quintet inked a contract with German El Puerto label and finally, eight years after their "Black Infect" demo, the debut is ready to be shipped to the record stores. The longplayer consists out of 13 songs that the label info describes as thrash metal. This is definitely the case but there's also a strong power metal influence present through-out. Listening to the melodies and leads reminds me more of Mystic Prophecy than thrash. The latter comes more forefront with the straight-on "Judgement Day".

What stands out are the hoarse vocals of singer Becky Gaber. It took me a while to get used to it. That Gaber has good vocal skills is what becomes obvious with the clean vocals sections, but it's the husky parts that become a bit annoying over time.

Besides this smaller side note "Anthems of a Dying Breed" became an aggressive and powerful debut that also benefits from a proper production and a well-crafted sound. Good music in known territory.

Tracklist:

  1. Premonition of Chaos
  2. Welcome the Apocalypse
  3. Cold Wings of Vengeance

CD review ANTHRAX "Kings Among Scotland"

Veröffentlicht am 26. April 2018 von Markus W. in Anthrax, Kings Among Scotland, Nuclear Blast, News, Thrash Metal, Speed Metal, Crossover, Live, Heavy Metal, Among the Kings Tour, Tour

CD review ANTHRAX "Kings Among Scotland"

(*/10) East-Coast thrash pioneers Anthrax played a show at Barrowland Blallroom in Glasgow, Scotland on February 15th, 2017. The show was part of the band’s “Among the Kings”-tour and was built very much around the legendary “Among the Living” album which was performed in its entirety.

The show was filmed and recorded, leading to this new Anthrax release entitled “Kings Among Scotland” of which the CD version is the base for this review. Next to the CD version the release will be available in other formats too, like DVD and BluRay, which gives you an additional visual impression of this intense metal show.

Listening to this live release feels like a journey back in time. Next to the brilliant “Among the Living” album also other highlights from the past found a way on the setlist of this show. Songs like the opener “A.I.R” and “Medusa” are still timeless classics in thrash metal that secure together with new material (“Breathing Lightning” and “Evil Twins”) a seamless thrash metal experience for fans of excellent metal music. This isn’t a coincidence knowing that fans voted on pre-show.

“Kings Among Scotland” is a live album that captures the energy of an Anthrax show in a really good fashion. This five-piece band from NYC belongs to the spearhead of thrash metal and releases, like the current one, shows that these five guys still have a huge appetite for metal and that’s what this live album states in a perfect fashion.

CD review SKELETAL REMAINS "Devouring Mortality"

Veröffentlicht am 18. April 2018 von Markus W. in Skeletal Remains, Death Metal, Thrash Metal, Century Media, Devouring Mortality, News, CD Review

CD review SKELETAL REMAINS "Devouring Mortality"

(9/10) It was back in 2011 when a new death metal outfit started an impressive rise within a rather short period of time. Skeletal Remains, hailing from Whittier, California, unveiled a ruthless debut in 2012 and it’s the sophomore longplayer „Condemnd to Misery“, which brought the band on the radar of a wider group of metalheads.

Skeletal Remains couldn't keep the speed when it comes to releases, but the band could maintain the passion and the spirit over a period of four years, leading to the fabulous third longplayer entitled „Devouring Mortality“.

The new longplayer of the four-piece outfit is the first one for Century Media. It feels like the new label and a period of four years created a lot of appetite with the band for brutal death metal. „Condemned to Misery“ was already a good album and it‘s the new longplayer that showcases a band that made a huge next step when it comes to songwriting and power.

There is no single weak or annoying moment coming with this longplayer. Each of the songs is an aggressive little masterpiece of contemporary death metal that builds on the Tampa-Bay sound from the 90‘s. Nothing sounds old-fashion on this release even though an oldschool vibe can‘t be denied. Aggressive growls, furious guitars and well-placed breaks create a morbid magic that is hard to resist. Actually it‘s impossible to not be fascinated by what Skeletal Remains offers on their third delivery, an album that should be also checked-out be fans that don’t call death metal to their favorite genre. This album has the potential to cause severe neck problems due to intensive headbanging.

Next to the very well-crafted death metal anthems it‘s the sound of the album that makes it stand out from the rest. No less than legendary Dan Swano was at the helm for the mix and gave Skeletal Remains new power strike a dynamic that is missed with many other genre releases.

If the third album‘s still a milestone that allows an outlook into a band‘s future, thing look very positive and optimistic for Skeletal Remains. „Devouring Mortality“ is a cornerstone in the band‘s history and can act as a springboard to close the gap to the leaders of the pack. In case bands like Obituary would decide to retire, here‘s the next generation that stands in line to take over.

CD review NALE "Death. Skulls, Satan”

Veröffentlicht am 14. April 2018 von Markus W. in Nale, Death Skulls Satan, CD Review, News, Modern Metal, Thrash Metal, Hea, Black Lodge Records

CD review NALE "Death. Skulls, Satan”

(7/10) Nale is a Swedish metal outfit that had its start in 2007. The self-titled first EP saw the light of day in the same year and it was in 2012 when Nale premiered with a full-length longplayer. The label info tout the band as ‘Sweden’s hottest underground metal act’ which might be a bit over the top. However, the quartet delivers with “Death. Skulls, Satan” a rock solid album that feels like a punch right into the face.

The tracklist comprises of eleven songs, reminding of bands like Pantera and The Haunted. The first two songs on the album speak a clear language. Nale is heavy and aggressive when it comes to their sound. “Filth!” is an extremely powerful riff attack that follows the ruthless opener “Slither!”

After getting out of the blocks very well Nale’s sound slightly shifts towards rock. “Dead Man’s Song” is a track that again shows some references towards bands like Pantera, mainly due to the Southern vive, but there’s also more traditional rock involved in this tune. Melody plays a more important role when it comes to “Dead Man’s Song”, an approach that’s finds a counterpart in the title track. “Dead. Skulls. Satan” is an uptempo song, somewhere between metal, rock and punk.

The first four songs give a good idea of what you get with “Death. Skull. Satan”. The album features aggressive metal track that never fade away into calmness and ease. The fourpiece band unleashes real metal vigor, mainly driven by mighty riffs, a merciless groove and dynamic vocals. Listening to this album is definitely no period of suffering. The songs stick right from the beginning and it’s solely the wider variation of style that made me think of a band searching for the essence of their sound. Anyhow. Good stuff for people searching for riff power.

Tracklist:

  1. Slither!
  2. Filth!

CD review TRAITOR "Knee-Deep in the Dead"

Veröffentlicht am 10. April 2018 von Markus W. in Traitor, Thrash Metal, Knee-Deep in the Dead, Heavy Metal, Speed Metal, CD Review, News, Violent Creek

CD review TRAITOR "Knee-Deep in the Dead"

(8/10) South-German thrashers Traitor premiered in 2012 with the critically acclaimed “Thrash Command” release and it was the sophomore album “Venomizer” that strengthened the positive impression. 2018 is the year for the groundbreaking third album, entitled “Knee-Deep in the Dead”.

The new longplayer comes with everything fans of thrash metal could ask for. It begins with the artwork that’s inspired by the book and video game called “Doom” which some of you might know. No less than Ed Repka, known from his work with bands like Megadeth, contributed with an artwork that identifies an album immediately as being a thrash metal one.

But it’s not only the visuals that bring back some 80’s thrash vibes. Each of the 11 songs (10 tracks plus a cover version), live up to expectations. Traitor fires on all cylinders when it comes to the third album. Inspired by bands like Kreator, the band crafted songs with venomous riffs, furious solos and an extremely aggressive rhythm-section. The double pack in the beginning clearly gives direction of what to expect from the album. “Mad Dictator” and “Predator (Skinned Alive)” are excellent thrash metal anthems that might not bring too much new to the table but it’s the embedded power and passion for metal that makes the album sticking out from the masses. It doesn’t need a lot of loops to get into the songs. Each of the songs is a joyful experience for listeners, rounded off by the well-done interpretation of Ramones’ “Blitzkrieg Bop’, which has a great tempo break towards the end.

Traitor's third album showcases a band that’s young, wild and hungry.  These guys are energizers and I guess we will hear a lot more of them in the future, Real stuff for headbangers.

CD review SEPTIC TANK "Rotten Civilisation"

Veröffentlicht am 2. April 2018 von Markus W. in Septic Tank, Rise Above Records, Rotten Civilisation, News, Hardcore, Crust, Grindcore, Thrash Metal, Punk

CD review SEPTIC TANK "Rotten Civilisation"

(9/10) Septic Tank is a band, hailing from the UK that has its roots in the early 90. It was in 1994 when Septic Tank began as an outlet for members of doom metal veterans Cathedral, following their passion for hardcore and punk. No less than Cathedral vocalist Lee Dorrian as well as Gaz Jennings, bass player Scott Carlson (Repulsion) and drummer Barry Stern (ex-Trouble) started the band with some jams on a few occasions.

After having been in a state of hibernation for two decades Septic Tank is back, this time with a record in their backpack. The debut "Rotten Civilisation" is following a first EP, entitled "Septic Tank", which was released in 2013 only in Japan and with a limited number of pieces.

After five more years it was the final concert of Black Sabbath in Birmingham that brought together Lee Dorian and Scott Carlson. A few songs were already drafted but not reheased while new songs have been added to the mix in no time while the guys met.

The result of all the wait and work is a raging hardcore, punk, thrash metal record. It's almost impossible to describe the sound since it's built on so many influences. Motörhead's sound is one source of inspiration while some doomy Celtic Frost moments add another shade to the mix. Next to these to creative influencers it's punk music that gives Septic Tank a rock solid base, a sound that's inspired by bands like G.I.S.M..

"Rotten Civilisation" is an album that lives by its dynamic and aggressive. It transports a pissed-off vibe that was obviously present when the guys wrote the songs and produced the album. There are no frills added at all. What you get as a listener is the pure essence of furious emotions, captured and embedded in each of the 18 songs. The joy with this record is the spontaneity. Nothing sounds planned again and again and again. All the songs are emotions and notes are just a helpful tool to express an angry vibe that's built on today's reality.

Septic Tank's debut is an extremely authentic and powerful album that impressed me from beginning to end.

CD review DEATHROW "Riders of Doom" / "Raging Steel" / "Deception Ignored" - re-issues

Veröffentlicht am 31. März 2018 von Markus W. in Deathrow, Raging Steel Riders of Doom, Deception Ignored, Thrash Metal, Speed Metal, Heavy Metal, News, CD Review, Noise lebt!, BMG

(7/10), (8/10), (8/10) German thrash metal from the mid 80's seems to have a revival these days. Bands like Exumer and Accuser released new longplayers during the last couple of years, the eight first Kreator records have been re-issued as being part of the 'Noise lebt!' campaign and now it's Deathrow that gets back on the radar.

Deathrow started as Samhain in 1984. Milo, Thomas Priebe, Sven Flügge and Markus Hahn recorded a first demo in 1985 and one year later the debut was complete. At the same time the band changed name from Samhain to Deathrow, mainly due to Glenn Danzig's band with the same name.

CD review DEATHROW "Riders of Doom" / "Raging Steel" / "Deception Ignored" - re-issues

"Riders of Doom" is the first album from the Ruhrpott-based quartet and it was originally released as "Satan's Gift". Even though Deathrow stood in the mighty shadow of bands like Kreator, Sodom and Destruction, the debut was highly acclaimed by fans. The quartet stood for authentic thrash metal that was raw and rough around the edges. The album achieved a cult status in the metallic underground and was more than just a decent result of hard work. In addition to this merciless aggressiveness Deathrow's sound included quite impressive guitar work with furious leads and solos. Songs like "Riders of Doom" and "Satans Gift" are still well crafted Teutonic thrash metal tracks that didn't loose any power over the last three decades. The re-issue of the album also includes some extras in the form of three demo songs and three songs from the rehearsal room.

 

(7/10)

 

Tracklist:

  1. Winds Of Death
  2. Satan’s Gift
  3. Riders Of Doom
  4. Hell’s Ascent
  5. Spider Attack
  6. Slaughtered
  7. Violent Omen
  8. Dark Tales
  9. Samhain

Bonus Tracks

  1. Hell’s Ascent (demo)
  2. Samhain (demo)
  3. Riders Of Doom (demo)
  4. Night of The Wolf (rehearsal)

  6. Screams of Pain (rehearsal)

 

CD review DEATHROW "Riders of Doom" / "Raging Steel" / "Deception Ignored" - re-issues

The sophomore album, "Raging Steel", followed twelve months later and showcased a band that developed sound and musical skills. Still being as unpolished as the debut "Raging Steel" came with improved song writing and a better production. Songs like two parts of "Scattered by the Wind" are thrash metal anthems from the underground, built on influences of bands like Possessed. As with "Riders of Doom" also the second longplayer includes some extra songs - in this case demo tracks and a live version of "Yigael's Wall".

  5. Samhain (demo)
  6. Yigael’s Wall (live)
CD review DEATHROW "Riders of Doom" / "Raging Steel" / "Deception Ignored" - re-issues

The triple of releases gets completed by Deathrow's "Deception Ignored". The longplayer was released in 1989 and marks the last album the thrash powerhouse unleashed for Noise Records. Even though Deathrow's sound is still built on thrash the third longplayer shows a big step forward when it comes to songwriting and complexity. The raw and harsh sounds of the debut evolved to a progressive metal album that finds a peak in "Narcotic", which is a 9 minutes progressive epos that impressive with complex sound structures and intricate elements. This album includes just a single bonus track, which is the so far unreleased "Bureaucracy" which comes from the recording session for "Deception Ignored"

These three longplayers made Deathrow to a legendary underground band from Germany and the re-issues make the albums available for fans of 80's thrash metal.
