Living Thrashers

Rated 2.5/5 (50%) (4 Votes)

I've had this one on my playlist for a while, yet can't find much to say about it. I liked their self-titled demo which was pretty raw and showed some promise, without being all that remarkable. This first full-length is very much in the same vein musically, but also sound-wise and unfortunately, this last one hurts. There are things that are acceptable on a demo, not so much on an album. There are a couple of good songs on here and the others are pretty average at best - but nothing horrible. Where things do get ugly is with the sound. Very demo-like, thin and weak-sounding. The songs are struggling to take off those restraints and just can't do it. Save for a few exceptions, the instruments sound thin and all mixed up, sometimes it's difficult to tell any of them apart. The vocals often suffer from the same problem, but fortunately not as much. These guys can thrash alright, you can find some of it in here, but they won't get noticed until they put some more effort in the sound quality, especially with all the new Thrash bands out there.
