Third World Genocide

Rated 3/5 (60%) (8 Votes)

We have yet another comeback album here - this time from America's early East-coast thrashers Nuclear Assault. Straight up, this reviewer never was a big fan of NA's hardcore tinged brand of thrash metal aside from a few songs from "Game Over". And this reunion changes nothing whatsoever for me.

Nuclear Assault have not forgotten their roots – in that they still remain highly political, sarcastic and play their brand of punchy, stop and go riff-infested thrash metal with Connelly's searing vocals. Speed knockers such as "Human Wreckage" will get you nodding along at least and the solos are quite good on this record, but overall, it leaves a lot to be desired. If you were not a fan of this school of thrash metal, it is wise enough to say that "Third World Genocide" will not win you over. If anything, it will set you farther back as the music here is not very grabbing at all, and feels rather dull and rushed. But again, this comes from someone who never appreciated the band much in their heyday to begin with.
