Moby Dick are a Hungarian Thrash Metal band that started in 1980 and recorded seven studio albums before splitting up in 1998. They reunited in 2002 and have recorded six more albums since then, with this one being their latest. Musically, they're Hungary's answer to Metallica, particularly in their later, more rock-oriented period, but there's more variety and musicianship to this album than that would imply. These guys sound as tight and proficient as you'd expect from a band that's been around as long as they have, and they put it to good use on songs like the Metallica-plagiarising "Küldhetnél egy jelet", the pure Thrash number "Biorobot" , and the crawling, ominous album highlight "Alkonyzóna".
Despite emulating one of metal's most commercial bands, Moby Dick do a fine job of taking their influences in more varied and interesting directions than Metallica have taken in decades. This album encouraged me to dig into their back catalogue, and I recommend you give this a spin and join me afterwards.
