Ever since I discovered this band many years ago, I get excited whenever I see a new album is out. Of course, there's always the risk of a band on the extreme side of metal going soft on us, so there's always that worry. Well, no problem here. The Burning is black thrashing madness from beginning to end, the way these Finns have been doing so well all these years. They still have that little hint of Deströyer 666 here and there in their sound, but overall this is just Urn doing what they do best. Fast, pounding, fist-raising blackened thrash, pure and simple. Their playing got more intricate over the years and it's obvious throughout the album, but they managed to do this without compromising their ability to rape our ear drums and make us beg for more. Another great entry in Urn's discography.
