Red, White and Blood

Rated 3.13/5 (62.5%) (8 Votes)

I was half-expecting some cool old school Thrash from this, based on the cover and album name alone. Not quite. Red White and Blood is like a mix of crossover and modern Thrash (no, that's not like the so-called "Thrash revival"), mixing the vocals of the former with the musical style of the latter. Some of the songs sound a bit goofy and even quite melodic, and there's some level of catchiness to be found here and there, though I can't say there is much that sticks once the album is over. Generation Kill do know how to play it fast, but this has a few slower songs as well – not particularly fond of those, which tend to drag a little. If you're at all into modern Thrash, then you'll find something to like here, but old school thrashers may want to look elsewhere.
