ADX, for God knows what reason never enjoyed the fame and attention they deserve. These French thrashers do absolutely nothing wrong on this album and riff after riff, "Exécution" will constantly remind you what the purpose of mighty thrash metal is – to headbang and make your frigging head fall off, so you can pick it up, attach it back on and headbang some more!

I've only had the pleasure of listening to two albums from this band as they are now presumably defunct; were never consistently on any major label; and most of it is out of print now anyway. So your options are just pretty much limited to CD-R/used copies or if you can find it – download it from somewhere, although I haven't had much luck with that option.

Anyway…brief description: this is cleanly sung (in French) thrash metal with vocals ranging from mid to highs. It is fast, strongly riff oriented and very catchy. Thrash Metal to the bone! Even though I have only heard two albums from this band, I will come out and say that ADX are just about the best damn French music band ever. Essential thrash indeed!
