This one is a no-brainer. It's on Nuclear War Now! Productions, so you should just go out and buy it without asking questions. Still here? Damn... Never heard a NWN! band before, I guess? ;) This some some furiously raw Death/Thrash with very slight hints of blackened filth thrown in for seasoning. Very little in terms of "slower" passages on this one, save for the beginning of a couple of songs where such slower passages sound like the back entrance to hell - simple but effective suspense-ish style. Mostly this is mid to fast-paced, and the same formula is used throughout the album with the mid-paced passages sounding hatefully vicious and heavy (oftentimes crushingly so), while the fast-paced passages are purely and simply either face-ripping or face-smashing - pick one, it doesn't matter, you're not getting out of a listen physically intact.
This is in no way "pretty" - raw to the bone, not minimalistic but there's no showing off here, just pure Death-infused Thrash with a vocalist that spits the hate with every word (think Desaster-style vocals on steroids.) Despite this sonic chaos, the whole thing comes off relatively catchy. The only problem I have with it is that a few songs sound a bit too much alike - in one case I thought it was the same song as the one before but with a slightly different approach. It doesn't really affect the overall "voyage to hell" that this album represents, but it's still noticeable. Not for wimps.
