Witches Rock 'n' Roll

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

If a band's name is Teutonic Slaughter, you pretty much have a clue what to expect from them, right? Filthy and raw sounding German Thrash Metal perhaps? Well, you get exactly that from these four relentless German patch-covered denim vest warriors on the band's debut full-length, Witches Rock 'n' Roll.

These fellows have really gone back in time to the underground era of 80s Thrash Metal. To me, they sound much like their country mates in Darkness and Destruction in their early days, adding bits of Venom and especially early Hobbs Angel of Death into their own wildly moving mosh pit. It's a tempting and lovely nostalgic mixture of some good things in Thrash Metal, in which the band has raised its strong middle finger against some annoyingly precise, overpolished and fancy playing technical-wise, and make it all up by their vivid and spontaneous ways to thrash their hearts out. That's exactly what I personally love in Thrash Metal: it's all about the right vibe and feeling how you are able to deliver your goods in a convincing way, without overdoing anything, or simply pretending to be something that you cannot ever be. Fortunately, Teutonic Slaughter avoids this ugly trap completely and manages to sound as real as it gets.

This is 100% bullshit and gimmick-free, Teutonic Thrash Metal that nods to the 80s golden era of Thrash Metal. If you're looking for something to keep your fingertips busy against a table, then look no further.
