DESTRUCTION - Under Attack Review




DESTRUCTION - Under Attack
Nuclear Blast Records
I just thought that this CD was mediocre and it seems to me that DESTRUCTION hasn't come out with a high-quality release since "Release from Agony", that's my contention though. They have stayed to their thrash roots ever since they came in to the metal scene though which dates back to 1984 I believe. The early stuff like "Infernal Overkill", "Mad Butcher/Eternal Devastation" and what I stated "Release from Agony" were their best. It just seems like they're bankrupt of ideas even though it's still thrash metal. Their songs on here are simply humdrum. There are no guitar lines that I really like nothing on here hits home with me. Some is just that Mike's leads are annoying so they have to bring in guests.

EISENHAUER – Horse of Hell EP Review




EISENHAUER – Horse of Hell EP
Independent
One of the pleasures that I get from the metal scene is the discovery of new bands, especially if they move in the genres I like. I also have to say that I am a big fan of the German metal scene and EISENHAUER from Germany was a surprise for me, because I had never listened to them before.

SEPULTURA – Schizophrenia Review




SEPULTURA – Schizophrenia
Cogmuelo Records
This is probably the most thrash oriented release the band has ever released, and brutal too. The guitars reflect their ingenuity in songwriting structure. A lot of tremolo picking kind of like “Beneath the Remains” and “Arise” before the total and utter fall of the band. This one is about as heavy as its follow-up, though not as catchy. “Beneath the Remains” remains to be my favorite from the band but this one is not far behind. It’s an ingenious release. I like the lyrics as well.
