Re: Favourite metal quote "...all day long when we were in school we could hear the metal press from the foundry across the street. You could feel the vibration from the hammers pounding all day long

Awesome! They played last night. I was honestly debating on going. I'm not really a fan of theirs but they seem to be pretty amusing in all the interviews I've read. Did you go last night?
I just saw them last week, dude, they were incredible. Two drummers. The heaviest thing I've seen since Swans. I'm not a big fan of their recordings, but "A Senile Animal" captures what they're like best IMO.

Read this quote today from Dave Grohl and although I am not a massive fan of Foo Fighters (oh alright I'd rather stick pins in my eyes and have old people tickle my arse) I thought it was pretty cool. "I went to England to see Cronos from Venom, and he really is that guy. I don't know if he's really Satanic, but we went to dinner and he drank like a Viking and ate a piece of meat that was almost still alive. The outside was kind of brown, but it was cold and bloody. And he told us about going into supermarkets and eating raw meat when he didn't have any money. I told that to Lemmy and he said, "Yeah, well I used to suck the meat out of raw sausages." It was like a contest for who could be more metal."

Flicking through back issues of some mags I unearthed upstairs earlier and have a few quotes that made me smile:

"If you can't handle failure, then I don't think that success is an option. So you might as well learn to fail efficiently and move on." - Devin Townsend

What is this supposed to mean? Surely it's still possible to succeed even if you can't handle failure. In fact, not being able to handle failure may push someone further towards success, like an elite athlete or someone. Devin Townsend's annoying.

    • 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
