Review


I got this CD from Metalion along with the latest issue of Slayer Magazine. I thought this would be some kind of death metal band but, much to my pleasure, this is more of an old school raw Thrash sound with a bit of death metal riffage here and there, along with vocals that could be described as a mix of Thrash and Death vocals. Think of a mixture of early Sacrifice, Sodom and maybe even a bit of early Voïvod, or more recent comparisons could be the rawest material from Australia's Deströyer 666 and Gospel of the Horns (not too surprising considering Vomitor are also Australian...) This is chaotic, unpolished with some damn simple but sharp and somewhat catchy riffs all glued together by headbanging-inducing rythm - the formula of real Thrash! I can't say I'm too crazy about the vocals, but after a few listens you get used to it (and I'm not sure cleaner, more Thrash-like vocals would achieve the desired effect here anyway.) This is probably a bit too extreme for many Thrash fans, but those who don't mind the death influences in the vocals should get a kick out of this one.

It seems that there's a vinyl version of this album that has a more complete "booklet", since on the CD version the booklet keeps referring to the LP version for more lyrics, liner notes etc... so if those are important to you, you might want to look for the vinyl version instead. Whichever version you get, this is one hell of a nice slab of raw old school Thrash.
