Album Review

Killer, female-fronted German thrash metal. Sabina Claussen sings with super deep vocals and the guitars are sharp and slicing. H.M. has been at it since 1985 and are contemporaries of Sodom, Destruction, Kreator, et. al. Rather good yet kinda raw yet rippin’ thrash with a very balanced production. (One problem: ambient outros on every track).

((((1)))) Ambient intro 1:22 the song kicks in proper with charging tempo and lots of crunch riffing and manic vocals & nice solos.
((((((((2))))))) Hammering, dense and just amazing, guttural vocals (with a gang chorus)
((((3)))) Pretty good heavy/thrash metal. Very 80’s sound with “this is the single” feeling to it. Catchy even with gruff vocals.
((((((4)))))) Huge build up and totally “in the pit” riffs.
Bridges the viciousness of the German sound with the melodies of the Bay Area thrash sound.
(((((5))))) Long track (maybe TOO long), galloping mega-thrash. With a Slayer-ish breakdown. Another ambient outro.
(((((((6)))))))) (FCC “fucking” sung in first verse) Big build up with lots of chunky riffs then rips it up “ye olde thrash” style.
(((((7))))) Pretty intense mix of riffing and vocals. Lots of jud-juding and some clean sung male backing vocals making it a thrash/power metal blend.
(((((8))))) Basic bare bones thrash with a faint keyboard (!?) in the background.
((((((9))))) More basic thrash riffs but this has more of a bite to it with torrents of slicing and zig-zagging riffs.
((((((10)))))) Violent, mosh-able speed/thrash. Weird King Diamond-ish breakdown.
((((((((11))))))) Whoa! Fast & raging right the at the start with some traditional/80’s type breakdowns.
(((((12))))) Mid-paced thrash/heavy metal with a “bangin’ in the front row at Wacken” vibe. 5:28-onward is a long cheesy outro.
