Puppeteer of Death

Rated 3.5/5 (70%) (4 Votes)

This is the second album from German thrashers Teutonic Slaughter, which basically showcases them in the same light as their debut Witches Rock 'n' Roll in 2016. These lads have kept their Thrash Metal approach relatively simple but still effective enough to cause some serious neck injuries to the listeners (my poor neck is still stiff from the last listening session of this record).

Teutonic Slaughter operates on the filthier, more straightforward and rock-ish side of Thrash Metal, which bows to the direction of bands like Darkness, Cyclone, and Venom and the likes. And if any newer names should be mentioned as a fair name-dropping, then I should mention such names as Nifelheim and Desaster, especially their early material. It's already clear that they don't want to become the most skilled musicians on the face of the earth, but just have some fun with their nicely rocking, at times very catchy Speed/Thrash Metal. There's a lot of speed, aggression and violence squeezed into this album. "Damnation and Violence" is a very good example of how much a band can actually rule when they don't give a shit about anything other than to push forward with all cylinders firing. "Spirits of Evil" oozes all good things in a ferocious Speed and Thrash Metal, the old school way.

So, you like 80s Speed and Thrash Metal? Well, me too. That's why my neck didn't show any mercy to me...
