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'm not big on death metal but for Krisiun i'll gladly make an exception. These Brazilian guys really have a crushing sound and mix things up enough to keep the listeners interested. They love their blast beats but also know when to switch gears. The Great Execution is probably also the best album they releases in my opinion. I'd give it a solid 8 out of 10.

The clean atmospheric passages were imo the best elements of this song. The distorted riffs where, if I'm being honest, kind of uninspired and I feel the song never really went anywhere. 5/10 because it wasn't offensive to the ear in any way just not particularly exciting.

 

Fair warning this next one is funeral doom and therefore moves at a glacial rate.

Haha yeah guttural vocals, crawling tempo, minimalist instrumentation that was never gonna strike home for you Davey...

 

Hard to go wrong with Overkill, one of the more consistent groove/thrash bands out there 6/10 they've got better songs but still good fun.

 

Doubt you'll go for this one either Davey but fans of first wave BM are in for a treat

I only own a best of album of Type O Negative so glad to hear one of their more obscure song for a change. Really digging the slow doomy passages which are interrupted by these almost punk-like sounding fast passages. Also nice use of some subtle synth´s here and there. I can see myself listening to this more often. A solid 8/10.

What do you think of their stuff in general? I enjoy the first album but I have to say my favorite versions of these songs are on their fake "live" album Origin Of The Feces. I'm a big fan of pretty much everything they did, but they got more polished after those two recordings.

 

6.5/10 on the Khonsu track, I like the band a lot and there are plenty of cool things going on here but I've heard them write much stronger and more memorable songs.

Well like i said i never got further then their "Best of" album which sounded okay to my ears. Although the length of their songs and albums in general are somewhat of a turn off for me. If an album runs longer then 45 min. then there is probably some filler material on their or my attention span is just very short. But to be fair like i said i never took the effort to listen to one of their albums as a whole. But judging from your comments the first two records is where i should start?!?

I'd say so. TON incorporated more gothic influences over time and became more polished overall. I find there's something to enjoy on all of their albums but Slow, Deep, and Hard, Origin of the Feces, and Bloody Kisses are my favourites. after that it depends on my mood as to whether I can listen to the album or not.

    • 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
