Through the Eyes of Madness from British Power/Thrash band Elimination is an EP designed to keep their fans in check while waiting for their second album, one that will hopefully soon follow 2010's debut Destroyed by Creation.
For those unfamiliar with Elimination their style can be thought of as a joint force between the old British band Xentrix and America's Iced Earth. This means powerful yet melodic cutting edge Thrash Metal that won't forget about the 80s, even for a moment. This new EP does not deviate from that formula.
I quite enjoyed this release, despite the production, which was fairly rough with the exception of the guitars. As always, the songs are what counts and each of the three tracks on Through the Eyes of Madness has a magnitude all its own. "Prisoner of Tomorrow" is the EP's greatest achievement, exemplifying Elimination's skills at composing catchy, smooth riffs while remaining interesting. The song has an aura about it and it flows extremely well. "Destroyed by Creation," the title track from their debut and "My Own Enemy" are also fine songs in a traditional metal fashion.
Through the Eyes of Madness is an intense yet melodic and classic type of metal. If you desire some old school metal, look no further.
