Mayhem- "Live in Leipzig"

This is my favorite version of Carnage

'Live in Leipzig' has the best versions of 'Carnage', 'Freezing Moon' and 'Pure Fucking Armageddon'. It's just amazing and easily the best live album with Dead. It's the last of the three show run (Jessheim, Sarpsborg and Leipzig), and I think the band were finally starting to shine. Pity it didn't carry through because I can only imagine how incredible 'De Mysteriis' would have been with Dead. 

NP: Eluveitie - 'Ategnatos'

Deathspell Omega - Ad Arma! Ad Arma! 

This really made my day a whole lot better. Seems like a mix Paracletus’s dissonance and Synarchy’s aggressiveness. The track itself comes close to Epiklesis I. I’m wondering what people think about this!

Beside Still Waters by The Luna Sequence

Highly recommend checking her stuff out if you like bands such as Celldweller/Circle of Dust, Blue Stahli or Zardonic. Industrial metal fused with electronica. Some really good stuff.

Pantera 'Cowboys From Hell' - amazed how much of this I had both forgotten but found so easily recognisable within a few notes of each track.  A lot of teenage memories in these 12 tracks right here.

I've been getting songs from this stuck in my head a bit lately, even though I haven't played it in years.

There’s so much of their previous glam rock sound still present on it, I can really hear it with my older ears.  Also some fucking weird bass reverb going on that I never picked up on before (don’t appear to have any remastered version either).

With you on the head play though, but I have had most of this rattling around in my head this week after the shuffle on my player threw up ‘Heresy’ and I just been itching to give the album a play.

    • 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
