Rated 3.09/5 (61.82%) (11 Votes)

More old school Thrash from Endless Brutality of Men, this time courtesy of Serbia's Pollution and their debut full-length, Modern Warfare. Pollution plays fast and aggressive, in the vein of early Exodus, Kreator and Tankard. There are no frills, just staccato riffing, squealing leads and typical Thrash lyrical imagery. Social issues ("Ruined Planet," "Manic Depression") take up the lion's share of the album's themes. Vocalist Branko Zoric has a "verbal diarrhea" delivery, sometimes cramming too many words in too little space, but he's got a decent Thrash growl. There are a couple of places where the drums seem to get out of sync with the rest of the music, which is annoying. The playing is otherwise suitably tight.

Modern Warfare is well within the confines of Bay Area Thrash. Pollution takes no risks whatsoever. As with many of the releases from Endless Brutality of Men, if you have a sweet tooth for old school Thrash, you'll likely enjoy Pollution. If not, you aren't missing anything you haven't heard before.
