Rated 4/5 (80%) (10 Votes)

Fuck yes. There are people who complain about the 'Thrash Revival', but fuck them. There are about fifty bands called Guillotine, and this one was formed by two guys who used to be in Nocturnal Rites and two other guys who used to be in Persuader. Rather than Power Metal, this band peddles THRASH. Mix equal parts old Slayer, Exodus, and most of all: Kreator and you have this four-man thrashing machine. There's nothing innovative here, just double fistfuls of crunching Thrash riffs and pounding drums. Guillotine remember that there's more to Thrash than just playing fast, it's about attitude, heaviness, and fucking riffs. Did I mention riffs? There's nothing here you haven't heard before, but that doesn't mean this band doesn't rip.. Despite a crappy cover and dull political lyrics, this album will leave some serious footprints on your ass.
