I don't recall Bavarians Vendetta being much different from most of the other German Thrash Metal bands back when they released their first two albums in the late 80s. They are back with their second full-length since reforming in 2002, titled Feed the Extermination, and not much has changed. Want riff upon crunchy riff? Check. Want aggressive, staccato drums? Check. Lyrics about standard Thrash topics like violence ("Tremendous Brutality"), horror ("De-organ-izer") and social injustice ("Abuse")? Check. All the hallmarks are here and Feed the Extermination is good, but not great, mainly due to the songwriting. Most of the songs follow the same familiar, mid-tempo pattern and thus sound a lot like one another. Singer Mario Vogel doesn't help; despite have a decent Thrash shout he seems to be singing in the same key throughout the album. Everything is well played but is just not particularly remarkable.

Feed the Extermination is the kind of album that, if it was playing between sets at a show, you would probably nod your head along to the beat, but you wouldn't bother to figure out who it was. There's enough good stuff here to keep Thrash fans happy just don't expect to be blown away.
