Now that's the stuff. This is Suicidal Angels' first full length album, on the aptly-named Old School Metal Records. "Eternal Domination" is a mix of American and German mid-80s thrash, marrying elements from early Slayer, Kreator and Destruction, just to name a few. The vocals sound a bit like a faster version of Mille Petrozza at times - you can find a little of his early raspy style here, although it's a bit more laid back here, sort of "whispery" if you will. Fast and evil sounding, a good match for the music which is mostly mid to fast-paced, with heavy and slow passages that slowly but surely elevate into speedier and speedier guitars and thunderous drums. There's enough old school riffage on this bad boy to make the seasoned thrash fan overdose. Overall the band manages to create and maintain a rather dark, menacing and destructive atmosphere - nothing really close to what you'll find on "Show No Mercy" (OK, that's aiming a little high), but pretty effective. As an added bonus, these guys are very tight, which makes this speed fest even more enjoyable. Fast, heavy, violent and blasphemous. Highly recommended.
