Aaaaaaah oui oui oui for Japanese 80s thrashing punk at its most Japanese!

This is true 80s hardcore with dark metal riffing here and there, absolutely marvelous cultosaurus punk death from very far!

Imbalance - Period Three Implies Chaos, 2010
Once again I have to amend the steady flow of stupid things I might write about "new bands" (not from the 80s...) because here is a newcomer that rips your head off in the manner of the almighty Sadus. In the realm of fast technical yet groovy and addictive thrash metal, Imbalance is close to the best thing I've heard in years and it's my favorite 2010 release. If you're into the more obscure thrash scene (not in the Municipal Waste | Gama Bomb trend) of the likes of Vektor, if you love advanced, modern metal that blends with the roots of 80s thrashing without being a caricature, and above all, simply near perfect metal with LOTS OF CLASS, bang your brains on Imbalance!!! 2010 Thrash Metal Nobel Prize!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
CD rip.

Buy this MASTERPIECE!!!! Digipak comes with a nice key holder, zer.

Bethlehem - Stönkfitzchen

Bethlehem - Stönkfitzchen, 2010


Yessss the teutonic mental genius is back and crazier than ever! This is only a mini CD with one old rerecorded song and five new needles to stick into your cranium, but this shit is so fucking good you can push the REPEAT button. This is S.U.I.Z.I.D. | Mein Weg quality stuff. The sound is a bit too compressed but the songs are such a killer assault on your sanity it does not really matter. 31 minutes of exquisite suicidal double hammers and saws! The music is a perfection of dark doom vice as only Bethlehem can make it - deadly heavy, melodic and unique - and the vocals are crazier than ever. A major piece of art of brain liquefaction! AWESOME PUTRID PILE OF ZERRRRRR!R!RR!R!RRRRRR !R !R!R!R! !RR !R!RRRRRRRRRRRRRR !R! !R! R!RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR !R!R !RR! R! R! !RRRRRRRRRR !R! R!R !R!R RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR !R! R!R! R!R!

The Blood Divine

Awaken, 1996
Mystica, 1997
Great soundtrack to the current weather: The Blood Divine made doom metal with 70s rock influences. The 1st Anathema singer is there, as well as several ex Cradle Of Filth people, but no worry, this has nothing to do with CoF except on the geographical level. Very excellent dark metallic rock with atmospheres and great groove, this band was as great as its existence was short. Mandatory piece for early Anathema fans (with less death) and early Stillborn fans (with more metal).
CD rip.

Fiel Lärm, 1992 (2009 reissue)
Graythem... Of Chaos + 9 live tracks (1992 - 2009) + 1 comp track, 1994 (2009 remaster)
Bombastic Japanese thrashgasm explosion alarm of mega zerrRrRRrr RR R R R Rrrr RrrrRrrRR!R!RrRRR!RrrR!r !r !R !RRr rr rRrr R!r !r!R!RR!R r !R !!!! Welcome to another unavoidable piece of heavenly top class golden heavy music. Self Defence, Mortal Days and Protest are the wet and warm dream records of all Nuclear Assault | Excel | Rose Rose | Slayer addicts: highly dynamic, groovy and memorable thrash and crossover to bang your head and mosh around the house all night long to, with excellent execution and production, the trademark Japanese intensity and for once massive, awesome bass guitar lines that drive the insanity instead of just being there as in most thrash. But then things reach level 666 with the last two masterpieces Fiel Lärm (cult German from Japan) and Graythem, both full of augmented multi-dimensional madness that has macerated through lots of mind bending Coroner, some eviscerating S.O.B. and above all the MASTER EXPERIMENTING SUPREME GENIUS GALAXY of Doom, whose bass player they share (explaining the crazy bass lines) - or the newest Atheist on acid. Insanely insanely great!!!!! I'm all wet and warm. I've only listened to Shellshock today. Each CD twice, fuck yeah! And it's not even night time yet. Then I'll replay the whole Doom catalog. The universe has a point after all.
CD rip.

Buy the AMAZING Abstract Discord reissue box set (Protest + Fiel Lärm + extended Graythem + live DVD), YESSSSSSS!!! RRRRRAAARARRGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

New, old and reload: Rotten Sound, Tank, Raw Power, Overkill, 3 Way Cum, Flotsam And Jetsam, Anthrax, Death Angel

New & old releases and a CD reload:

Rotten Sound - Napalm, 2010
New obliterating mcd with 3 songs plus 3 early Napalm Death covers, and a terrorizing live DVD. More grinding madnessssssssssssssssss!!!

Tank - War Machine (digi w/2 bonus), 2010
Unbelievable! A new Tank album in 2010! Unbelievable! Without any original member, not even Algy Ward (but the 2 guitarists from the This Means War era)! It's like Motörhead without Lemmy, and it does not sound like Tank but like Saxon! That said, what an awesome heavy metal record! The singer is Doogie White from the 90s version of Rainbow. It just does totally sound like Saxon, so if the 20 Saxon albums are not enough, get this one!

Raw Power - Resuscitate, 2010
ARGH! Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition and nobody ever expected a new Raw Power studio album! Yet here it is, the great follower to "Still screaming after 20 years". It's not as intense as the classic trio of Screams From The Gutter-Wop Hour-Mine To Kill (one of the greatest crossover discs of all time!!!), but very enjoyable indeed. Plenty of old school hardcore punk and 3 re-recordings of old songs (find out which ones !) plus a "I wanna be your dog" cover, nice job!
All RAW POWER (dead links reloaded)

Overkill - Iron Bound, 2010

Feel The Fire, 1985

Fuck You And Then Some, 1988
Overkill are among the classic bands whose first releases I loved, and then I lost interest in their following output, and then they come up with and incredibly strong metal attack - Iron Bound!! Feel The Fire is the eternal thrash classic, and Iron Bound is a groovekillmachine of similar facture, just louder!!! OVERKILLLLL!!! I shall now try again all the albums in between these two masterpieces...

3 Way Cum - Killing The Life + Battle Of Opinion, 1995/1996

Classic 90s crust thrash! When you heard too much Warcollapse in one day, 3 Way Cum let you pursue the death tar diet.

Flotsam And Jetsam - The Cold, 2010

Flotsam And Jetsam - Doomsday For The Deceiver (+ 2 demo tracks), 1986
Flotsam And Jetsam - Doomsday For The Deceiver 20th anniversary edition (+ 5 demo tracks), 1986/remixed in 2006
Same remark as Overkill. Completely forgot about them after the classic Doomsday, and then BAM! they hit you behind the skull with a monumental 2010 album. The Cold is a tour de force of catchy yet dark metal that rocks from start to finish. With the feeling of Life Of Agony's latest rocking studio record from 2005, a lot of up to date thrash metal and a host of melodic hooks, MASTERPIECE!!!!
Oh yeah this is the band that Jason Newsted was extracted from to join Metallica. The Cold buries any post-1986 Metallica, nothing else matters.

Death Angel - Relentless Retribution, 2010
Oh yeah c'est the new Death Angel! They're back with the fire and class of the last two studio albums, huge groove, lots of thrash, top notch musicianship and brain-engraving hooks. This is the kind of stuff that makes me want to hear more old guys doing new records (instead of new guys trying to do old records). Amazing!

Anthrax - Fistful Of Metal, 1984
Aaaah yesssssss, the classic of classics! I never really liked their other discs, but this one is the ultimate ripper!!!

CD rip of everything.

Sorry for the slow posting these days, there are many other things going on... but no, no zertirement in sight! Too old, too cold!

Par exemple le nouveau Roger Mag dont la ponte est prévu avant Noël - et en attendant voici Roger Mag TV en internexclusivité!!!

Piece Of Time (+ From beyond demo + Hell Hath No Mercy demo + R.A.V.A.G.E. - On The Slay demo), 1989
Unquestionable Presence (+ 9 pre-prod tracks), 1991
Elements (+ 6 tracks live radio broadcast from 1992), 1993
Live At Wacken (CD 1, live show), 2006
Live At Wacken (CD 2, compilation), 2006
Jupiter, 2010
Mega armaggeddon zer!!! The masters of super technical thrash and death are back with a bomb after a 14 and 17 years long hiatus. The first three albums are still the burning classics they always were, this stuff sounds as amazing as 20 years ago. Even more so when you think about it. The dexterity and versatility of Victims Family with a Bunglesque turn and the heaviness of Death and Sadus, aaaaaarghhh!!!!! Now you might have read horrible reviews about the new masterpiece Jupiter, and I don't understand statements like "this is Atheist's Cold Lake / St-Anger". Don't believe this. Yes, Cold Lake and St-Anger are truly horrible bowls of diarrhea, and no, Jupiter does not even begin to fall in this category. On the contrary, repeated listens of this (too short) gem on a daily basis hooks you 'til zer! It is more straight forward and focused on the heavy and aggressive than Elements, it is truly an amazing release, Atheist is an eternally awesome band, thanks for resuscitating the legend!!!
CD rip. CD 2 of the live album is useless, with no unreleased version of any of the songs nor outtakes etc.
