Spree’s “Deception Betrayal Revenge” sounds
like something from the San Fran Bay Area thrash era. Their new disc
is basically thrash with maybe a bit of power metal sound. At times
they are comparable to SOD, Exodus, Slayer. Vocals are a similar style
to Slayer and Exodus…screaming and singing at the same time.
The recording is tight for the twelve songs almost 42 minutes, you
can tell these guys know what they are doing. It stays pretty aggressive
throughout and there is no real let-up of pace. There are decent solos
and metal riffing…not the greatest, but solid. Some of the riffs
will make you pump your fist. The music may sound mature but nothing
really grabs and shakes you and a lot of tracks have a similar feel
to each other. Many of the main riffs are quite simple, I would like
to see a little more complexity. I think that could improve this some.
He can do it, he demonstrates this well in the solos. They should
keep this going and turn it up a couple notches!
