The Third Attack

Rated 4.4/5 (88%) (5 Votes)

All good things must sort of come to an end. I've been stalling on writing this review because I've been having so much fun listening to this album for the past few weeks, but unfortunately it's time to free up some room on the playlist...

That intro must tell you that I really like this album. I won't get into something long, as I'm not into long reviews. Ravager's brand of thrash is a practically perfect mix of old-school and more modern thrash metal, cranked up all the way to 12 (take that, Spinal Tap!) This is fast-paced, heavy, crunchy, razor-sharp thrash that's just downright fun. The vocals are largely decipherable and it's so damn tempting to sing along as the vocalist keeps up with the frenzy speed of the music. These guys don't seem to take themselves too seriously, so it's kind of refreshing these days: you can just put the album on, kick back, and have a good thrashing time. The Third Attack is catchier than most thrash I've been exposed to recently (and I've been exposed to a lot). Not only fans of thrash, but also heavy metal and even power metal should check this out as this is quite accessible, yet aggressive enough for the thrash crowd. Don't worry about the "modern" elements, Ravager took the best out of that sound and left the annoying crap behind. Lots of fun headbanging times to be had with this one.
