Waiting to Rot

Rated 2.83/5 (56.67%) (6 Votes)

Stripped down, simple Speed/Thrash Metal gets respect in my book, especially when it's well made and has some true musicianship behind it. Hungarian Speed/Thrash Metal band Fanatic Attack captivates my attention with their somewhat simple skills and how they stay true to the underground tape trading times of the 80's. Fanatic Attack are clearly influenced by early Teutonic Thrash Metal and early Kreator, Minotaur and Violent Force come to my mind instantly. After recording a couple of demos and EPs it was just a matter of time before Fanatic Attack put out their debut studio album.

Waiting to Rot is charged with primitive aggression, roughness and an enthusiasm to thrash in the name of the lovable sub-genre of Heavy Metal known as Thrash Metal. Listening to Waiting to Rot sounds like Fanatic Attack are standing right in front of you at their rehearsal room. The live feeling is delivered well, perhaps too well because the songs sound like they were recorded in just one take. Guitarist Põcze Ádám, who handles the lead vocals with a gritty approach, is reminiscent of younger Mille (Kreator) or Gary Markovitch (ex-Blood Feast).

This stuff isn't bad, maybe a bit too generic, and offers hardly any surprises. Check 'em out but do so at your own risk. You may like them or maybe not. You be the judge.
