2/10 I hate that album and song. Paschendale is the only song I half like from that record.    

Really enjoyed that, not listened to much of Krisuin, yet! 7/10  

10/10  I love Batushka - one of the most consistently enjoyable albums that I own.  The guitar tone and riffs, when matched with their vocals produces some of the most unique and fascinating dichotomi

I will say 8/10. Don't get me wrong, - Dios vocals were very beautiful. I mean, he could make it big in other genres too. His voice was like no other, wich I respect him for. But I'm used to Ozzy's Sabbath, so it's hard for me to like later Sabbath. 

Here you go. An young motherfucker, who began listening Megadeth just yesterday. The thing is, I've heard Peace Sells and uhmm... Symphony of destruction before, but I somehow did not like it much. It's like that with me. Some time passes, I listen to record again and start liking it more. 

So this night I went in spotify and listened to Killing is my Bussines... And basically Mustaine loves killing, hehe. So I started listening to album, and title song just filled my ears with metal like nothing else. 

Rock on!

The vocalist on 'Headless Cross' is the mighty Tony Martin, not Dio. Amazing and underrated vocalist who sang on four great Black Sabbath albums.

Martin-era Sabbath's pretty great.

Great to see some love for Tony Martin on here, one of the most underrated vocalists in metal imo.

 

7/10 love a bit of Toxik, I have World Circus on Vinyl, and tbh I do prefer that album.

some of the riffs were really cool but

Aye. It starts out really promising ... then they kind of lose it a little for a while.

About Voodoo, Inc. I'd have to say that it's competent and well made ... but it kind of sounds like a bunch of other bands that I think of as "the Pantera genre" (with more or less deviation from true form) ... so I don't really get any feeling of "hey this is interesting" or anything like that. Nothing to complain about, nothing to brag about. Everyday meat and potatoes. So a solid 6/10.

Here's a souvenir from Denmark, 1969:

This only reminds me of that old problem with Judas Priest and album covers. Scream for Vengeance is easily one of the best metal album covers ever ... whereas this sucks six different kinds of ass. Musically, it isn't all there either. They are definitely "at work" and doing a decent enough job as such ... meaning that it may not be a great Priest album, but it's still way above the "lesser" bands. I'm gonna give that song, on its own merits, a 7/10.

Okay ... now for something completely different:

    • 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
