AVENGER OF BLOOD – COMPLETE ANNIHILATION (JCM Records)

Review by Holger B.: An old-school thrash grenade of the finest shoot us the Americans AVENGER OF BLOOD from Las Vegas around the ears. The band around the sympathetic drummer Shannon Frye (ex- VENGEANCE RISING, ex- BIOGENESIS) knows how to perfectly blend the rawness of the 80s Thrash bands with the groovy riffs of modern times.

On this album are just blasts and no filler! Old hands will already know what to expect in titles such as “Bound by Torment”, “Violent Epiphany” or “Forced to Kill” while reading these words without first hearing a single sound. From the vocals to the wonderfully roaring guitars and the cover everything is in order.

Only the sound is not transparent enough for my taste. Just imagine, this CD would have been produced by an Andy Sneap! Then you could definitely speak of the perfect Thrash Metal disc here.

Anyone who likes bands like KREATOR or SLAYER can not ignore this release. Check ‘em out at: https://www.facebook.com/aobthrash/

My rating: 85/100 (Good in its own genre, recommended for those hooked on it)
