||Atomkraft once dwelled among the British
Thrash seen back in the 1980's. "Atomized" was Tony Dolans'
most technical demo-release before later joining forces with Venom!
Atomkraft have a slightly different approach than Venom, however,
still running parallel. They played much in the vein of thrash metal
with some obvious elements (Anvil, Metal Church, etc...). This band
had a very technical & aggressive approach, but also had some
very crafty melodies with a slightly more "power"-style
vocal range. This is, in essence, the second album that was never
actually finished. I would have liked to hear what they might've sounded
like nowadays, but one can never tell with the direction of bands
anymore. Anyhow, this is pretty much the epitome of thrash in every
sense of the word. If you can find their material, it is definitely
worth the effort! I would suggest checking out Dolans' website (www.tonydolan.net)
for that purpose...
