Canada's Fatality is a Crossover-flavored Thrash band and Psychonaut is their second full-length. At first I was set to lump them in with the acronym bands of the 80s, like D.R.I., G.B.H. and C.O.C. but the more I listened to Psychonaut, the more I realized Fatality is a lot better than those bands ever were. For starters, Fatality understands that to make their songs truly listenable, they have to be melodic and not just a bunch of guys banging away on their instruments. The can actually play AND write a song. The choruses from "Monstrous" and "Towards Disaster" stick in your head like they were made of Power Metal and "Thrashterpiece II" is a 7:15 long instrumental that never gets boring or tedious. The vocals are a bit wild and probably the closest thing to actual Crossover on Psychonaut but Fatality's playing is so tight, the singing never gets to stray far enough to ruin the song. Psychonaut is not your typical Thrash Metal album but Fatality isn't your typical Thrash band, making both mighty refreshing.
