the ones I condemn (extended with 1 remix, 2 re-recordings and 2 live tracks from 2007), 2009
The sound, the legend, the zer ! Sacrifice are back with something close to the perfect album. "The ones I condemn" is the thrash metal surprise masterpiece of the year, buy this monster now ! Especially if you're getting bored with the overdose of not-so-brilliant retro-thrash of today... That's just my jaded opinion from of an eroded, ever-unsatisfied mind, but aren't the new albums by old masters like Bulldozer, Onslaught, Nasty Savage or Sacrifice a hundred times better and nastier than all the fresh stuff from the likes of Warbringer, Municipal Waste or Gama Bomb (not even mentioning the false leg of metal embodied by Killswitch Engaged and all the MTV business) ? More importantly, who cares ?
MEGA ZER to the 5 exemplary albums of one of Canada's very best metal band ever ZERRRRRRRRRRRR!R!R!R!RRRRRRRR !R !R! !R RRRRRR R!! !R !R!RRRRRRRRRRRR R!R!R !!!RRRRRR R!! ! !RRRR !RR!R !!RRRRR R!R!R !!!!

k.z.s., 1995
live at monsters of rock, 1998
ties of blood, 2004
Brazilian thrash metal exactly like it should be : South of Slayer. On the scale of Sepultura, I like this better than most pre-roots Sepultura and much more than any post-roots Sepultura. "Ties of blood" is a mega bomb of zer a dozen times more vicious than most thrash of today.

Dirty and raw hardcore punk rock aggression in true Crucifix | Rattus form with more metallic Accüsed perversion on the latter 2 albums, you really want this stuff! There is a good dose of great covers (Discharge, Motörhead, Black Sabbath etc.) and a couple of songs also in the Accüsed repertoire, plus stellar re-recordings of old songs on "what's in a name", how zerily zer TO BE SMASHED ON THE FARTZ ROCKING BLOOD WET WALL OF ZERRRRR!R!R!R!R!RR!RR RR!R!

Corruption of Peace - confusion

Corruption of Peace - confusion, 1985
My first confrontation with C.o.P. was on the 1986 7" comp released by Pushead with Fratricide and Septic Death etc. (cf. the comp Pusmort View), and I was floored. Owning the complete album was not an option. Largely influenced by Crucifix and deploying the same amount of class and hooks - only faster, Corruption of Peace stand apart from the traditional Japanese thrash of the 80s and will STICK TO YOUR PERFORATED BRAIN FOREVER ZERRRRRRRRRRRRR!R!R!RR! !R! !R !R! !R !R!RR !!!!!!!!!!!RR!R!R! ! !R!RR! !R!R R!R !RR !!

Submit to the kings of Italian thrash metal! From an early Venom | Tank reformulation to high profile fast thrash à la Sodom, Bulldozer kick your ass up to Jupiter. The new album "unexpected fate" is a super hot follow-up to "neurodeliri", ie. fast and essential thrashing with an added dimension of superb instrumentation (these incredible guitar parts! and a Billy Sheehan bass solo!).
