Heavy Vocal Distortion - 666 Songs of Madness

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am creating this topic to promote a non-band project I've started around a year ago. I hope this is the correct place to do this, but I've looked through the other sections and thought this would probably be the most fitting.

What is this all about?

Last year I have started to compile metal songs I love into a public playlist. The playlist was quickly growing as I was listening to close to 60 songs/day (sometimes more), filtering out the, in my opinion, best ones in the process. I then decided on the rule to make the playlist 666 songs long and eventually start a new one.

Why are you sharing this?

I started this playlist for myself, but managed to somehow make some people find it and accumulate 8 followers by doing absolutely nothing. I then thought it would be fun to try and get more followers to promote Extreme-Metal music and artists. I also wanted to have other people show me their bands and albums (or just their favorites) to promote them if I like them and give them some form of exposure.

How can I apply to be featured in a playlist?

Simply answer here and I'll check out the band. Please provide a spotify link as this playlist won't feature any artists that is not on spotify to make it more accessible for everyone.

Who are you anyways?

If you care, just your average fan. If you want more infos about my listening habits you can check out my last.fm from my signature. I have logged almost 19000 songs heard after 1 year of usage. I have also written an introduction on this forum here.

How YOU can help!

First of all, follow the lists and share them with some friends. Shuffle through the songs from time to time and add some of the songs YOU enjoy to your personal playlist, check out the full albums, do as you please and just enjoy yourself. Also showing me some bands that could be featured would also be a huge help!

Give me the playlists!

    • 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
