||OK I grew up on this stuff, so am I in heaven
or am I just in hell? Haha - thrash lives!! It's so great to hear
how fresh this is to my metal ears. With years of being poisoned by
3rd-rate black/death metal bands without technically-shredding and
choppy guitar musicianship, not to mention the virus known as power
metal that has multiplied tenfold, I have no clue how it stays alive.
Actually, no, I love alot of black/death metal and very limited amounts
of power metal (Iced Earth, Helloween). However, Denata
has calculated a formula of elite old-school Thrash metal in the vein
of Kreator and Destruction (remember Revenant or Demolition Hammer
in the early 90's?!). Superb production (which never really mattered
in the day), choppy and catchy technical guitar rhythms with a hint
of Swedish-style death metal thrown in - that's always a good combination.
Thrash is thrash and thrash is a hard hitting musical experience.
My favorite track is "No More Dawn" as everything aforementioned
is the very essence here. A solid metal choice for anyone with any
roots whatsoever, not extremely original, but not bad!!!
