LETHAL SHOCK - Evil Aggressor
Witches Brew Records
A very METALLICA – “Kill ‘em All” based release...with a better production of course. This is a debut album, it's only about 30 minutes in length, but it sure kicks butt. I can't relate to the lyrics, but the vocals were just OK, the music I'm more keyed into than anything else on here. The guitars just kick total ass. For a debut, this sure is one to appreciate. The music is speed sort of style of metal and it has a good mixing/production sound to it. It's one of 2016's better releases by a band. This album just simply rips from beginning to end.
The only reason why this isn't an "A" album to me are because of the vocals. The music is just phenomenal. But when I first heard it, it sounded like the introduction to METALLICA's "Hit the Lights." But no, it delved into something more than just that. Throughout this album there are tempo changes and fresh guitars.
It's something to grow on in terms of quality-wise. It's not generic though. It's something to appreciate that can be found on YouTube to try out. That's actually what I've done since I ordered the CD of it.
This band has a bandcamp site and you should check it out. That way you can not only maybe hear a track, or just go on YouTube and listen to the whole album. The guitarist just simply rips.
Again, this is pure speed metal and it's got a lot of lead guitar bits to it. The riffs are “Kill ‘em All”-ish, but they have their own quality sound. I'd say though that they went a little overboard on the solos. My view only.
But yeah, support the band and the album by owning it!!
