Spina Bifida

Spina Bifida - Ziyadah - 1993
Spina Bifida - Iter - 2015
01. Spina Bifida - Ziyadah, 1993 CD Album
     Adipocere Records - CD AR 010
02. Spina Bifida - Iter, 2015 CD EP
     Godeater Records - GRC029
If you are old and fat enough, you remember with a wide smile the doom death triumvirate of My Dying Bride | Anathema | Paradise Lost of 1990. There were challengers to the throne and Spina Bifida was leading the charge. Ziyadah indeed deserves praise of identical intensity for it is as funeral and as heavy as anything the triumvirate released. It is one of those innumerable underrated albums that fill the vaults of the Church. The EP from 2015 could have been released the week before or the month after the album: it drips tar and brings desolation just like its older brother, at the same crushing pace and with a similar production. Its lyrical themes only seems to have shifted to physics and the core of matter instead of dead witches, which is nice, although dead witches are always a great topic. Recording your music in a graveyard must be so much fun. Triplazering doom til death til everything becomes nothing!

Yes, Japanese heavy metal. But no, this post shall not be as enthusiastic as usual when dealing with Eastern riff makers, for this stuff is almost bad. There are good songs, i.e. songs with a great rocking heavy metal background. But there are too many awful pieces of shit radio ballads or simply mediocre attempts at a hit. Plus the good songs are invariably poisoned by keyboards and the vocals are waaaaayyyyyyy too pop, at least they have the typical Japanese vibe. I had bought the first LP because of the flying V on the cover and was disappointed it sounded weaker than Scorpions' Tokyo Tapes. I recently found a short stash of cheap CDs so gave Earthshaker another chances 20 years later, but it still does not work for me. They released twelve billion albums, I have only heard these five, maybe an exceptional release exists that I should listen to? Now back to the real heavyweights Anthem and Loudness.

Classic thrash metal! Forbidden were (are?) that kind of versatile entity that knows how to be heavy, catchy and crunchy at the same time while never selling out to any trend (outside thrash metal). Intensity, speed and melody: zer & rezer. If pressured by the taxonomy police, I would put them in the league of Flotsam & Jetsam | Lääz Rockit | Death Angel | Heathen. Their pristine discography bangs your head with class and energy - yes, on Green and Distortion too, do not listen to disgruntled purists who disapproved of the slight modernization of their sound in the 90s, these are two amazing albums. When in need of pure metal that rocks solid skulls while not obliterating the sound waves in war metal fashion, Forbidden is the perfect choice. Hard to pick a favorite, but if pressured by the ranking police, I would say Twisted Into Form and Omega Wave are two masterpieces that deserve to be played and replayed many times at 11. Thrash til zer!
