Old school Thrash Metal, straight-up with no frills, is what Gama Bomb offer on The Terror Tapes. Speed and aggression are mixed with a good dose of tongue-in-cheek humor that will bring back a flood of memories to those who were around in the mid-80s. Singer Philly Byrne has a non-descript sort of shout but occasionally channels Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth, giving songs like "Terrorscope" and "The Cannibals Are in the Streets" a definite Overkill sound. These songs are simple and effective with frenetic riffs and squealing solos. As mentioned, Gama Bomb aren't afraid to inject a little humor into their music and songs like "Beverly Hills Robocop" and the 21-second "Shitting Yourself to Live" evoke the craziness of S.O.D. The Terror Tapes is consistent from start to finish and there are no weak tracks. It's a fine slice of old school Thrash for old and new fans alike.
