Indestructible Noise Command (a.k.a. I.N.C.) put out a couple of albums in the late '80s when thrash metal was transitioning from "this is fucking cool" to "another thrash band?" territory. I fondly recall playing cuts like "Dry Heave" and "Hypo-dermic Coastline" from their album The Visitor back when I was a college radio DJ. I admit I had no idea the band was back in business until their fifth album (and third since reforming in 2010), Terrible Things, hit my review queue. Little has changed in the band's style which is based on lightning-fast riffing, precision time changes and a healthy dose of groove, all things that were popular at a time when things like extreme vocals and more technical playing were taking over the standard thrash model. The singing is clean, but the vocalist has a rough edge, like he gargled with a little road salt prior to hitting the studio. He's also a bit off-key toward the end of the album. Still, could be worse. Terrible Things has its share of songs that don't break any molds but tracks like "Declaration" and "Bone Saw Ballet" are solid, late 80s thrash that should work just fine for the hard-core moshers.
