Death for All

Rated 3.4/5 (68%) (5 Votes)

What the hell, Deceased goes Thrash Metal?! Polish thrashers R.O.D., a.k.a. Razor of Death, sounds a lot like the King Fowley-led Arlington, Virginia-based Deceased from their demo days in the late 80s but with a stronger Thrash Metal approach. Added in are some piercing, spot-on solos à la the Hanneman/King axis and a nice Punk feel to their sound. Vocalist and guitarist Szlucher could be King Fowley's identical twin brother, at least vocally.

R.O.D. throws 11 fast-paced songs in the air in less than 26 minutes by concentrating their high-octane aggression to raise extra steam for their hectically pumping Thrash/Crossover machine. That makes their stuff truly enjoyable. They go straight ahead, never losing focus on sheer ass-kicking and neck-snapping, aggressive outbursts, and, believe it or not, that's enough to do the trick. As the album title Death for All shamelessly suggests, the R.O.D. team doesn't respect anyone. They let their guns sing the name of straightforward Thrash and Crossover and stand like a bunch of proud winners at the end of the day. So, what the hell; death to fuckin' all!
