The Guillotine

Rated 4.46/5 (89.23%) (13 Votes)

Yeah, that's the ticket. Germany's Vulture go right for the throat with pure, 80s-style Speed Metal a la early Slayer, Exciter and Razor on their debut The Guillotine. The band have the leather and studs look with awesomely cheesy stage names like L. Steeler and S. Genözider but it's the music that will pin your ears back. Lightning-fast lead work and machine gun drumming underscore inhuman screams on almost every track, the only exceptions being the intros to "Adrian's Cradle" and "(This Night Belongs) To the Dead" which take down the speed a notch but amp up the creepy factor in turn. The Guillotine stands toe to toe with the Speed Metal classics of the 80s and when you crank up the speakers, neighbors will slam shut their windows and passersby will cross themselves. That means go get it.
