Excessive Outburst of Depravity is the eighth full-length album from Germany’s Protector, and it is another fast, aggressive assault of remorseless death/thrash that is sure to leave your neck sore. As on previous albums, the band spends a fair amount of time blazing along, machine-gunning your eardrums with razor-sharp riffs, pummeling drums and raspy shouts. They can slow things down, like on "Shackled by Total Control," which offers a respite from the onslaught without any loss of heaviness. None of the songs latched onto my auditory nerves like an alien face hugger, but the songwriting is uniformly good as is the sound and at this stage of their career, Protector sound like the pros they are. If 47 minutes of neck-breaking thrash is what your day calls for, reach for Excessive Outburst of Depravity and strap in.
