Favourite Vocalist

Recommended Posts

Top 5 vocalists:

1. Marco Kehren from early Bethlehem and Deinonychus. He is the only vocalist that makes me physically depressed! I've not heard of any other vocalist that comes close to his shrieking and groaning

2. Matthias Blåd from Falconer. Just a pleasure to listen to. Listening to Falconer's debut album, his vocals really made the album.

3. Roman Saenko from Hate Forest, Rattenfänger. His vocals fit in perfectly with every album he sings on. So deep and evil sounding. Hate Forest wouldn't have been the band they were without his vocals.

4. Jeff Walker from Carcass. The sounds he makes just defies belief. It sounds as though his vocal cords are shredded! His vocals made Carcass stand out from the rest of the death metal at the time and still does

5. Barney from Napalm Death. He's not the greatest sounding vocalist but boy can he belt it out. The sheer energy of his singing is fantastic and fits in perfectly with NDs music. He makes you want to trash the living room!

Not even Rainer's vocals on "Dictius Te Necare"? Marco sounds great but Rainer's always been the classic "I just swallowed a meathook covered in Drano" Bethlehem vocalist for me.

    • 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!
