Good?

It's one of my favourite releases of the year so far and there is only one track I don't get on with.  The record just constantly elevates with every track without ever getting complex.  It's greatest triumph is the beauty found within its primitive yet powerful structures.

So here's a funny one...

I had initially pre-ordered Noctule and Svalbard LP's way back in the winter. But I got buyers remorse and cancelled my order. Got my money back and everything, no worries. Yesterday the vinyls showed up at my door. Thanks, I guess? Free vinyl.

I did that with the Mercyful Fate reissues last year and ended up with 2 copies each of DBTO and Melissa.

I recently received two albums from Cosmic Key Creations. My first NESI pressing, this being my favourite Bloodbath album "Nightmares made flesh". And a discounted, damged version of The Haunted's "rEVOLVEr" picdisc. The damage was very minor IMO, a seam split on the top of the jacket, but it was lowered from €15.99 to €7.99! Very good deal.

I never got to see them, I'm a little envious. 

Absolutely as good as you could imagine. Unfortunately, the only tour shirt I bought out of the 5 times I saw them was for the Snakes & Arrows tour in 2008. I will probably go back and fill in the gaps in the future, but Presto was a special show being my first.

This is a phenomenal album.  Shame they immediately turned too poo on the next one.  Only one of their more modern albums I like is Exit Wounds.

I will give you guys horns even though I don't do Rush. Had hernia repair surgery yesterday, amongst many other big life things, like quitting one of my jobs, some other stuff culminating. You know the drill. But have missed the forum (old and new) and only keeping up on the periphery. Bout to pop another perco and browse some new releases though so it's all good! To my fellow goats send me you best if I am missing new releases. I have a few ill post eventually. Also been a good year for thrash so far, for those who enjoy. Cheers all, good to see you here Dead!

Yeah, it's shock full of great songs and riffs. I agree that the next album was kind of a mixed bag, but I still dig some songs like The Medication and The Flood. Exit Wounds were good but I think Strength in Numbers also had some sharp songs.

    • 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!

    • 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.
