Album Review
Reviewed 2005-11-08
Modern US thrash metal with some death metal leanings. The sound is mid-paced and very heavy with great vocals you can understand a lot of the time. This is somewhat of a super group from Oakland. Includes former members of Grimple, Buzzov-en, Schlong and Word Salad. Lots of head banging fun. Reminds me of Goat Horn or Ghoul sometimes.
1. FCC. The vocals are understandable, scratchy and great. They chance speeds a couple times and there are plenty of different riffs and changes. Old school mosh breakdown.
2. Very discernable bass with somewhat cliché and simple thrash sound.
**3. Clean arpeggiated guitar intro. Mellow vocals with female backing vocals. This all builds into a mid-paced headbanging instrumental section. Then the track kicks into speedy thrash mode. There is a spoken vocal section and it sounds like the guy from Ghoul.
**4. Guitar solo and vocals to begin which eventually gives way to a class bay area thrash sound. Midpaced. Be prepared to headbang.
5. Slight Slayer leanings. Speedy with a big breakdown.
6. Slow, pummeling intro and another with a Slayer influence. After the guitar solo there is an odd mellow section with female and male vocals.
7. Mellower track that never speeds up.
**8. FCC. Class midpaced bay area thrash sound with somewhat simple riff. A long track with many parts. Fun head banging breakdown. Mellow sad ending.
9. Semi-classical guitar intro and a sound someplace between a ballad and doom. I think they pull it off.
10. Speedy, straight forward thrasher. This has an early British death metal sound.
Wow. -mph
