Generation Antichrist

Rated 4.14/5 (82.86%) (7 Votes)

I've never followed Onslaught much and their past output is nothing that ever really stuck, though I like it when it's on. Things aren't much different with Generation Antichrist. It's fast, fun thrash that nonetheless carries a bit of a dark vibe at times. The delivery is modern, while retaining some of the band's old-school style, and the band's experience is definitely audible, but overall I can't say this is any better than dozens of thrash bands out there that have brought the genre to a whole new level. In that sense, it reminds me of newer material from other '80s thrash bands that made a comeback, such as Exodus: It's good, but it's nowhere near as remarkable as what they've done in the past and they're safely colouring inside the lines. I enjoy the album, but I can't call it essential.
