Giant megathrashosaurus alarm! Bow down to the Dark Angel! I still can't decide what is my favorite 1986 thrash metal album: Reign In Blood or Darkness Descends. Allow me another 30 years of manic headbanging to ponder. We Have Arrived had already been a deadly bomb that had rendered 1984 an even most crucial year after Haunting The ChapelApocalyptic Raids, In The Sign Of Evil, Sentence Of Death, Ride The Lightning, amen. But it was only a warm-up preamble to its incredible successor. More complexity made the last two albums less blatantly voracious, yet these are still dark giants in their own realms. Darkness Descends remains of course the epitome of darkangelry and probably of the whole thrash metal zeriverse, Absolute triplathrash attack! WE WILL GIVE YOU MERCILESS ZER!!!

Requested, rezerred. Semi-classic Italian hardcore of the raging early-Negazione sort, sort of. The demo LP is ok for its rawness, the latest record is great and more sophisticated, the yellow LP is the one killer king here. Fast and loud, angry with intensity, thrash amd bleed!

Infinity in the superiority! Marvel of the eternal! Up the upper layer of the zerosphere that wraps the EZTT, one meets unmovable entities, among them Scat Opera. The late 80s/early 90s were loaded with what was tagged as funk metal, it was all hot and new and rich with these riffs. Scat Opera is the brightest light in this galaxy. The comparative advantage of Scat Opera lies in the very intense Victims Family sound they use to reinforce a Faith No More | Living Colour backbone of killer rocking groove. But there is a lot more than that and I would trade an organ for a third album. Please! Schnell! Meanwhile we must play another million times these essential recordings of zerrest zeritude. The first album is more radio friendly with this occasional thrash vibe, the second album is a vicious masterpiece of demonic instrumentations and energy. Perfection in the überzer!
Paris 1991 + Maelstrom!

Yes, this S.O.D. It was less apparent due to the confinement of the internet in 1985 to the pages of MRR, but the PC police was already extremely virulent, and S.O.D. was a hot target. Nevermind the aristo-punks, Speak English Or Die is as full of pubescent bad taste, monster riffs and killer songs as day one. The thing ages very well and grandma is moshing in all directions! The CD version contains an excellent cover of Inferno's Ram It Up. Then the other releases are OK, but of course that first album remains why they are such a dirty rotten classic super group (featuring shareholders of Anthrax and Nuclear Assault / Brutal Truth). Bang that head, zer yourself, I want some milk!

Thrash attack alarm! RG is one of these killer bands that pay tribute to 80s thrash metal without being mere revivalists. This is high quality, high velocity, high passion stuff bulldozing with class. Like Death Angel at the speed and intensity of Sadus with a voracious motor of Exhumed. Or something like that. Great production, amazing songs, addictive riffs, everything the true thrashosaur needs from breakfast to bedtime. Bang your head, thrash til zer!

Requested, zerred. VK are from Finland and if you expect them to sound like TK, you are right: it's almost a tribute. VK valiantly shoot their short blasts of 80s type hardcore punk directly between two bones of your choice, and it hurts good. They do not overthrow the masters TK, but the job is done very well indeed. Fast abrasion and loud orations!

Back from a week at an IT conference. The closing event was a party featuring a show with Icona Pop and Gwen Stefani. I was floored. Unexpected extension of the antizer! I had suspected it existed but had never experienced such infect blasphemy for the ear, the mind and the flesh. This show was my most horrible descent into the apparently bottomless vertical tunnels of mediocrity. I could not even bring myself to get drunk, and there was a huge open bar! The two Swedes cannot sing, cannot dance, cannot write sentences, they'd better enroll in amateur porn. Then Guano Stefani manufactured an impersonation of Madonna with even less talent, which is an achievement I must admit. No singing, no lyrics, no musical background, the invincible force of vapidness was overwhelming. I am still speechless. Quack quack quack march the gooses.
Back to the hotel, blasted the ZOM terror horror antidote! Thanks to ZOM, the disinfection was quick. Nothing like a good drowning in the death swamp of Korpse, Hellhammer, Coffins and Grave! Magnificent black filth of blasting doom triplazerification!

The Church Of Zer is 8 years old! To celebrate the passing of time and the aging of all things, let us drown in the perpetual perfection of the human chair, the grandiose stream of metallic heaviness and lifelong artful rocking achievement of Ningen Isu. The musical expertise deployed in this mountain of a discography touches the highest skies of the EZTT. Ningen Isu is like the perfect drug of heavy hard rock. It is like experiencing the combination of the darkest of Uriah Heep/Black Sabbath with the heaviness of early Melvins and late Dio through diplomatic excursions in Wargasm and Tank territory plus a Shellac vibe, and many other greatest ingredients of the zeriverse. But with the Japanese touch, it sounds like a whole different beast. Bang your head and rock til you drop! Ningen Master Triplazer!

Plunging to megadeath! Pestilence has been a major black sun in the death metal EZTT for the last 116 centuries. There is the raw, morbid, Kreator|Death-ish thrash metal of the demos and the Malleus album. There is the heaviest death metal reeking of Possessed and Death of the hypra classic Consuming Impulse, and then there is the more sophisticated death/thrash of the Ancients. And finally there is the flabbergasting "experimental" vicious metal attack of the eternal masterpiece Spheres. And then there is nothing for 16 years. And then there is the trio of the new albums that go for the brains and the meat at the same time: submit entirely to the very fast modern and very finely tuned death attack propelling as much merciless brutality as dissonant expertise in your general direction. Only totally killer albums: this is exhausting! Bang your head into the spheres of Pestilence forever ultriplazerrezer!!!
And if anyone is able to share a FLAC rendition of the live release, you're welcome.
