Swords, crucifixions and headbanging! TMOA is a strange beast of polymorphous black metal - almost sailing the seas of Sigh. If you hate Sigh, the probability you will hate TMOA is high. Twelve dozen tons of weirdness equip this lot with the devices needed to survive in an ocean of generic black metal, which they really are not. If early Darkthrone teamed up with Bolt Thrower to hire a gang of violinists and then kidnapped a chamber music orchestra to create hybrid music that ranges from Mayhem to Rammstein - and of course the holy Sigh! -  while watching Holy Grail, they would name themselves The Meads of Asphodel. Some sections are cheesy as fuck and I suspect it is deliberate, just like the LOL-inducing medieval photos. This is a unique band, very much tongue in cheek, with teeth grinding moments alternating with pure headbanging bliss. A unique beast of metal and definitely British! Brilliant beyond zeristic horizons!

Fast, loud and pissed! In terms of rage, style and efficiency, Détente matched the fury and the setup of Holy Moses or Sentinel Beast: female-fronted aggressive thrash destruction! But unlike HM and like SB, their discography is way too short - which may contribute to their cult status. The first album is an underground 80s classic, all the demos rip (cf History 1 CD). and the last album is a terrific come-back 24 years later with a new lady torturing the microphone with as much determination and ear-burning power as original star Dawn Cosby (R.I.P.). Brilliant hostility! Recognize no authority and thrash til zer!!!

Requested, zerred - almost a reload. The mastery of Sigh does not weaken after 25 years, their new album is just as amazing as all the previous ones. Weird blackness, plague and beauty, polymorphous invasion of the meat, symphony of sickness, Venom tribulations, the art of sonic expansion: welcome to zer. To make it simple, the dirtier, rawer side of their craft is to be found on the first two releases and on the superb live Scorn Defeat 20th anniversary, while the post-angular, head-scratching, larger-than-the-universe defenestrations shall be found on all the other releases. But sophistication does not mean dilution of the black blood: Sigh is that band that manages to never let go of the roughness of their 80s influences although they have reached the higher end of the musical panorama and psychedelia. If black metal had existed in the 70s, this is what we old thrashosaurs would have heard. Favorite albums? Hard to tell - probably Infidel Art for nostalgia reasons, and In Somniphobia because it rules the universe even more than the rest of their catalog. Nobody sounds like Sigh and Mr Bungle can suck my hair. Truly weird, true awesomeness in the triplazer forever in the EZTT of black edifices!

Ramming Speed - Doomed To Destroy, Destined To Die - 2013
Ramming Speed - No Epitaphs - 2015
01. Ramming Speed - Brainwreck, 2008 CD Album

     Prosthetic Records - PROS102152
Thrash til zer! Here comes another severe rebuttal of my conservative view of hardcore thrash and crossover: "was only done well in the 80s". Nobody may have surpassed Ludichrist, Raw Power and Beyond Possession so far, yet the crossover addict shall find in Ramming Speed all the magical ingredients needed to bang that head just as effectively. Imagine Attitude Adjustment adjusted with the speed and restlessness of that crazy drummer on the first Mastodon album, awesome dual guitar works that R.K.L. would have been proud of and all the heaviness of Converge processed through the Universal Rock Machine, as instructed by Annihilation Time. Infectious thrashing and neck breaking and head smashing! So yes, on the surface Ramming Speed seem to recycle the good old 80s recipe of mixing hardcore and thrash metal - and maybe the first album, not their best, is just that - but the intensity and the performance on the last two albums just scream "MASTERPIECE!". This stuff is extra high caliber material, the musicianship and production are top notch, and the general style incorporates as much frantic energy as catchy phrases and excellent riffs - so intense and filled with greatness it is almost exhausting to listen to in one siting. Blast Doomed To Destroy at 11 to get what I mean. As much as I love Iron Reagan or Dr Living Dead, Ramming Speed are far more incisive and impressive - they are my heroes of modern crossover. Fast, loud, motörizing superior killer crossover explosion of the triplazer!
