WatchTower



Demonstrations In Chaos, 1983/1987
Energetic Disassembly, 1985
Control And Resistance, 1989
Another amazome band in 'Watch', yet in a totally different style. This is some of the hottest recorded metal you can find, especially if you consider the release dates. Nobody in the metal scene was playing such an advanced music in 1983, forget Iron Maiden. It is super technical without obfuscation, the melodies stay in your head for hours and then you hit PLAY again until your brain understands or escapes. The song 'Asylum' is the classic of classics. Watchtower have that jazzy Victims Family approach but with the thrash metal vibe. Actually, Watchtower are to Metallica what Victims Family are to the Dead Kennedys : an infinite progression. Some might cringe at the high pitched vocals that almost attain Mercyful Fate altitudes, but after some adaptation, you won't regret the time invested in this beyond brilliant super-powered prog thrash metal sculpture. Don't miss the demo CD, the demos sound greater and are simply better than the albums...
CD rip.
