NRAR. Another set of vinyl rips not included in the previous AOD post. Be thankful to our QA department for noticing all these holes in the posting. These two albums are still the crazy classics they have always been, especially the supra killer Humungous and its gum-contracting speed and tear-dropping riffing. AOD forever triplarezer!!!

!ZER Adrenalin O.D. ZER!

Since we are dealing again with ancient classics, let us recap the new releases that have graced our aural conduits in Q3 2015 that could become classics. The underground is always extremely prolific, and the Church highly praises, recommends and worships already the new Raven, Venom, Skepticism, Vhöl, Satan, TK, Systematic Death and a bunch of others. 2015 is great for old monsters.
But in the major leagues, all is not as exciting. The new Motörhead is a vibrant disappointment. I really wanted to like it because it is their 40th birthday and the digibook looks awesome. But the album is flat and uninspired. Still no match for Another Perfect Day, their last classic.
The new Slayer is equally boring, not even as thrilling as Divine Intervention, which says a lot. I really wanted to like it, I even bought a mega box full of CDs, DVDs and picture disc. But alas, Repentless is flat and uninspired.
I'm not even going to bother listening to the new Iron Maiden. They have only released flat and uninspired shit for over a quarter of a century. Their only listenable releases since 1988 were live discs featuring pre-1985 songs. May they be eternally cast to the nearest golf club in their shining airplane.
The true kings of the overground in 2015 are Saxon. Battering Ram is a complete masterpiece of unadulterated crunchy and catchy heavy metal, it is their best album since The Power And The Glory, maybe since my favorite Strong Arm Of The Law (not counting all the excellent live albums since then). Saxon forever!


  1. The Tau Cross album is one of the best things I've heard in past few years... It's so ZER!

    1. Right! And there are plenty of others, but my incorruptible laziness prevented a full spectrum review. The new Gehennah is also very awesome, as well as the the new Sigh etc.

  2. These guys just had another reunion with this classic line-up and they can still bring the house down, though they are breathing harder afterwards these days.
