Worth the wait for..........


Recommended Posts

Acid reign who were considered one of Britain's big four thrash bands released there album  the age of entitlement approximately 29 years after there previous album. Its shame they didn't do anything sooner as I really like it. 

It got me thinking are there any other bands who have massive gaps between albums or massive gaps between when a favourite band member returned. Anyway looking forward to hearing some responses. Can you beat acid reign. Can ya ??????in all fairness I will put better case for acid reigns latest album if few people respond. Thanks ?

Afterbirth was part of the beginnings of the brutal DM scene on Long Island in the early 90s, but they broke up for a long time and it took them over 20 years to finally get back together and record their debut. Gorguts also comes to mind with their breakup and 12 year gap between From Wisdom To Hate and the amazing Colored Sands.

Cool I knew there would some. May just have to look these up.   Was the afterbirth album worth the wait? Was it an album you were really looking forward to? The acid reign album I didn't like that much at first but after a few plays through I really liked it. It was an album best played from start finish. Some albums are like that.

I thought the Afterbirth album was awesome, yeah, they turned into a more interesting band over the years. Lots of brutal DM but also some cool melodic sections and sci fi atmosphere.

Alabaster thanks for suggesting afterbirth. Had quick listen and it's good and vocals were different but fitted the music very well. I like the variety of stuff they play, not heard the sci fi bits but looking forward to those and I'm always fan of melodic bits. Reminds me of death in places buts it's death metal so it would right.duh,  ha ha ha.  Will probably listen to some of there other stuff. Sounds like it was worth the wait for there debut. Just of interest what's the debut called. I put there name in Wikipedia and found nothing so have just looked them up on you tube.

Nice, glad you liked it. The debut is called "The Time Traveller's Dilemma" and the one that came out last year (also great) is "Four Dimensional Flesh". You might like their vocalist's other band Artificial Brain, too.

Thanks alabaster for the info, thought this much as there's a 2013 release but from track listing doesn't look like a typical album with more than typical amounts of demos and live tracks. 

Just out interest Why was there such a big gap between there inception and there debut? Was it because the band just stopped completely?

Thanks for the suggestions too. Will definitely check those out.

Yeah, they stopped in the mid 90s, some of them moved away, life, etc. Our old moderator BlutAusNerd became friends with their guitarist on another forum and put me in touch with him years ago, and I've been following them since then.

 

Another album that fits the bill for me is Soundgarden's "King Animal". It's basically dad rock and it doesn't have the raw energy of their 90s stuff, but there are some awesome songs and beautiful moments on there. I go back to it a lot. Chris Cornell is sorely missed.

I can't believe that even Soundgarden is getting old enough to be dad rock now!  haha

Ok thanks for the info re after birth. Guess that coniincides with metals much spoken about down turn in the nineties.well metal hammer magazine mentions it, but at least  there playing again and recording such good music. 

Re Chris Cornell. Such a shame really is. Such a talent.

    • 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!
