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

There's obvious nods to other bands in that sound, as such the band whilst executing that thrash sound well enough, feel more like they're paying homage to their peers then enter the fray alongside them. 5/10 for being competent if unoriginal.

 

Speaking of thrash we got a ways to go with these fellows before the next "S" band...

I have one perfect word to describe this band: Overrated.

Sorry but I always seen them as a Weak band, even if they aren't. I don't know what people see in their sound. I despise kind of comments saying that they are the best of the big 4. This song is one of their most famous work I think, I remember this song from the Jackass Demolition Derby Scene. and I'm glad it only played for a few seconds. 2/10

Ay caramba ... Kingdom Come. Yeah, I remember them. I even have a CD, or maybe two ... but I don't like them much. They belong to a genre of "MTV formatted bands" that was the metal mainstream of the 1980s. They all sounded the same, looked the same, and had the same road crew (that were the ones I related to). Competent and all, but very formulaic. 6/10.

I grew up in the 70s ... and used to dig this kind of stuff:

Im in the same boat with power metal. Its the popcorn of metal, nice from time to time, but not too exciting. This song is nothing unqiue, but still enjoyable 7/10. Ill entertain the idea of some more power metal cuz why not? This one is a little more meaty than the average power metal

on the note of Serpent. They are a Japanese Melodeath band. This is their first of two albums. No one really seem to know if they exist anymore. I have no idea how dad found them, but he would blast them all day when I was like 8. Bloody gates (the song I linked) is from the album called Cradle Of Insanity (full album on yt surprisingly)

    • 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
