God from the Machine

Rated 3.67/5 (73.33%) (6 Votes)

Danish thrashers Impalers have unleashed their second album, God from the Machine, and have decided to stick to the fast and ripping old school Thrash Metal approach that has been the name of their game ever since they appeared on the Thrash Metal scene.

On God from the Machine Impalers keep the pedal to the metal, determined to create a little chaos and thrashing their hearts out the best they can. If you combine some Teutonic Thrash Metal with early Sepultura and Metallica you'll get an idea of how they want to punish us on this latest disc. Vocalist/guitarist Søren Crawack's sandpaper-dry snarls fit amazingly well into Impalers' raw and brutal approach and he sounds like a hungry beast that's been left without food for a couple of weeks. On "Beyond Trinity" he makes a little exception with some clean singing and he's pretty good. Still, the nastier side of his vocal repertoire is a better fix, as songs like "Destroy the Meek" and "I Am Revolution" prove with viciously punishing sonic beat downs. "The Walls of Eryx" is a pretty nice instrumental tune and shows a softer side of Impalers' songwriting skills as they attempt to create something as memorable as Metallica's "The Call of Ktulu" from Ride the Lightning. "The Walls of Eryx" isn't anywhere as amazing of course but it's still a very ambitiously crafted track.

Good Thrash is always good Thrash and this album can definitely be considered a good Thrash Metal album. Good stuff in-fuckin'-deed!
