German Warfield want to thrash, and they know how to thrash, the hard way. Taking their main influences from early days' Kreator, Destruction, Slayer, Razor, etc., expect nothing but a total Thrash Metal sonic havoc.
Wrecking Command is a very aptly named album title to describe this German trio's debut: savage, filthy, barbaric and unforgiving Thrash Metal that gets your blood boiling and feeds and activates the violent lobe of your brain. While songs like "Call to War" and "Atomic Strike" aren't too far away from Slayer's musical territory, "Vision Genocide" harkens back to Kreator's Pleasure to Kill with some immensely heavy and rough riffing brutality, as does "Trade in Blood" but going for a stronger Slayer-ish vibe again.
Call this retro-Thrash or whatever but as I stated at the very beginning already, these fellows do know how to thrash on their not excellent but very good debut album, despite their young ages. But if knowing your guns is in your DNA, then things get easy for you, right?
Anyhow, I found many captivating and entertaining ingredients on Wrecking Command. A voyage back in time in Thrash Metal well accomplished on this release.
