Hello all. I came from Germany, and i have chosen to join an American Metalboard because germany sucks lol.

I really wanna test now if its true, and the Mentality is different.

So i give it a Try, and i hope you give me one.

My Name is Daniel, and im 39 Years old. I make Music which you can hear:

Moderator edit: Not outside of the promo section we can't - link removed.

and i like making Animations and handcrafting, yeah ok. So My favorite Metalbands are Children of Bodom, Cradle of Filth, and im ashamed but i really like Marylin Manson, but his Music only. Hes A Genius but he terrorising his Bandmambers. I listen a Lot of Old Stuff also, like In Extremo. A German Medieval Band, I think its called Pagan Metal, but in my Youth we called it Medieval Metal.

And of course the old Stuff from Metallica.

Ok thats me so far. :D

Sry for my not so perfect English

Oh its global yes, i tought .COM is in the U.S mostly.

Germans are very stuffy and salty. Everybody knows this, so if this here, is from the U.S, or Global (mixed) i guess its more relaxed. Yeah in "Generel" I heard that about American People, they are not so complicated and more open for Stuff.

And also Germans seems like have a lot of Depressions, and you can feel it anywhere. Specially now, maybe its in all Europe atm. But I can only speak for Germany. Maybe i just need a break from those People. Also on Work i must handle those People everyday, And getting a little Distance from them, at least at my Favorite Hobby, maybe could feel good for me.

Welcome, my friend!  I wasn't aware of the Germans being stuffy and salty, but that country has produced some incredible heavy metal!  Sodom, Destruction, Tankard, Accuser, Helloween, Primal Fear, Accept....man it's crazy just thinking about it.  

I'm a massive Cradle of Filth fan, myself, so it's great to see them mentioned in your original post!

Willkommen. You will discover new bands here. We are more fun than Wiesn Oktoberfest in Bavaria. But once you've had your fill of the Commonwealthers you might just want to go back and take your chances with your stuffy & salty Deutschland brethren.

At least its not so expensive like Oktoberfest. One more Reason here.

We all must get Vaccination and wear Masks in Bus and Railway but 1000 People in one Tent Puke and pee each other. Hypochrates i hate them.

Blind Guardian as well while we are discussing German bands.

 

Anyway i’m late to welcome wagon as usual but hope you enjoy it here, now let’s see if I remember any of the German I learned in primary school…no, not a word seems to be the answer to that question.

Thx 👍 So you dont listen Rammstein. I bet you know the Words "Du hast" 😏

I remember in the 90's when Rammstien became popular (or maybe just known) here in Oz, it brought a whole different group of fans to metal shows. At first they didn't really fit in with the thrash/death gigs and bands we had pushing around the place. It took probably 3 years before crowds started to settle down and accept each other.

haha. Yeah Rammstein Fans are weird mostly. Because Lindemanns Lyrics are really sick. In Spiel mit mir he sings how he abusing his Brother in Bed. He want to get his Tree touched and the white Leafs will fall for him. I think i was 8 and i have a Brother, anytime that Song came on Sehnsucht i pushed it away, because my Father would ask me if im a Pervert by listening to this. Its a Lot of Incest and Abuse in his Songs.

    • 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!

      3/5

    • 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
