Riders of the Wasteland

Rated 4/5 (80%) (5 Votes)

Debut album for this Finnish band who wave high the flag of classic Scandinavian Death Metal, sounding definitely influenced by fellow Norsemen Mega Slaughter. This is heavy, riffy Death Metal with a big dose of Thrash style in the songwriting and a grubby recording job that sounds raw without being shitty. Vocals are an echo-laden bellow that is almost completely unintelligible, but creates the proper kind of roaring complement to the relentless riffs. This is a short album, but it's worth looking for.
