You don't have to make chickens evil, they're born evil. Easy to be lulled into a false sense of security by their pretenses, but a fiercely intelligent malevolence lurks within them, visible sometimes out of the corner of your eye. One day they'll rise and reclaim the empire of their dinosaur ancestors, and all of this mammalian hegemony since the asteroid hit will be shown for the historical aberration it truly is.

Brilliant. Let me be the first to pledge allegiance and subservience to our new feathered overlords.

AFAIK, I was. But here's an irony - I'm an atheist and I've always been an atheist, since day 1 when my mom tried to brainwash me with her imaginary friend in the clouds.

If I ever have kids, they won't be mentally raped with religion, therefore won't be baptized.

What if they are lovingly fondled by the warm, soft hands of religion?

There's no such a thing as "loving hands" with religion. Religion is just horror and hatred disguised as love (all religious are disguised as love) and there's plenty of evidence for that: the few hundred bodies of children found near a Canadian catholic school a year or two ago; the hundreds, if not thousands, of children raped by catholic priests over the last 200 years alone, not to mention before that; the millions of adults, children and even animals killed in the 1000 years of Dark Age by the loving religion after they've been accused to be "witches"; or the torture devices invented by the Spanish Inquisition which was catholic - that's a great example of love!; or if we go back to more recent times - the genocide in 1994 in Africa commited by the loving priests of the catholic church.......

Don't forget that the book of the christian imaginary friend is full of murders and commandments to kill people, including children and pregnant women!

And the christian religion isn't the only monster always lurking under the children's bed! The muslim religion is exactly the same - 9/11, that French magazine that was bombed for ridiculing the arabs' imaginary friend, adult male get married to 5-6 years old little girls in the muslim world and kill them by brutal sex (there were some artices a few years ago about a 40+ yo muslim who brutally raped his 6 yo bride and she died) but he wasn't punished bc in that world she was his property and that's not just an isolated case in the totally messed up muslim world...

You know how to use Google, look up all these cases yourself, then keep telling yourself religion and the imaginary friend are love... 🤣

Once a state of automatic aversion to bullshit is obtained it is safe to become unaware of religion. Religion is not immediately threatening me in my daily life so religion does not need to take up any space in my mind. Shrinking my consciousness is the way.

I probably shouldn’t weigh in on this topic but I can’t help myself. The sad fact is whether you believe or not religion can, and in many places does, impact your daily life. Anywhere politicians use their favourite work of fiction to decide what’s best for the people religion influences what can, and can’t, be done. From India to Israel, Poland to Iran, America to Australia.

It impacts my life like the weather, forces beyond my control. Politicians also use non-religious fictions to harness power. Religious or non-religious if a politician is involved it is bad.

I'm sure this guy said the same to himself and it didn't end well for him. This is just one example of why I stay away from religious people. They're ticking timebombs waiting to blow up in your face the moment you say something that doesn't praise the sky pedophile.

So, you just going to ignore the fact she was also originally found to be too mentally incompetent to stand trial, and had to receive intense counseling before they could actually indict her?

Christ, I honestly don't care if you're religious, spiritual, an atheist, or some edgelord anti-theist...trying to frame someone's mental break as proof that all religious people are just waiting under your bed to get you is some truly exceptional thinking.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!

    • Full length number 19 from overkill certainly makes a splash in the energy stakes, I mean there's some modern thrash bands that are a good two decades younger than Overkill who can only hope to achieve the levels of spunk that New Jersey's finest produce here.  That in itself is an achievement, for a band of Overkill's stature and reputation to be able to still sound relevant four decades into their career is no mean feat.  Even in the albums weaker moments it never gets redundant and the energy levels remain high.  There's a real sense of a band in a state of some renewed vigour, helped in no small part by the addition of Jason Bittner on drums.  The former Flotsam & Jetsam skinsman is nothing short of superb throughout "The Wings of War" and seems to have squeezed a little extra out of the rest of his peers.

      The album kicks of with a great build to opening track "Last Man Standing" and for the first 4 tracks of the album the Overkill crew stomp, bash and groove their way to a solid level of consistency.  The lead work is of particular note and Blitz sounds as sneery and scathing as ever.  The album is well produced and mixed too with all parts of the thrash machine audible as the five piece hammer away at your skull with the usual blend of chugging riffs and infectious anthems.  


      There are weak moments as mentioned but they are more a victim of how good the strong tracks are.  In it's own right "Distortion" is a solid enough - if not slightly varied a journey from the last offering - but it just doesn't stand up well against a "Bat Shit Crazy" or a "Head of a Pin".  As the album draws to a close you get the increasing impression that the last few tracks are rescued really by some great solos and stomping skin work which is a shame because trimming of a couple of tracks may have made this less obvious. 

      4/5
