I dead set thought I had accidently swtiched to a Voivod album. Now if that isn’t one of the finest compliments you can ever give a band, you may all kiss my lilly white arse.
Drawing heavily from old school, more thrash influenced death metal, they reject the caveman riff revival in favor of something more sinister.
This album is a much needed throat punch to the decadence and oppression of modern society. Plus, it absolutely rips!
Hold tight through the gallop, then relax into the deep.
Get Wasted thrashes hard, the way crossover is supposed to, with a ton of hardcore punk attitude and energy.
…the Texas quintet do so in a slow burn thrash track that is reminiscent of the classic thrash I grew up on, in terms of grit and delivery.
This release has real riffs, played well, and yet retains that rugged feeling through production choices.
Moshing and headbanging will ensue with each listen, of which there have been (and will continue to be) many.
[The album] cuts sharply through the uninspired masses of extreme metal, forward thinking, but calling forth the masters of the past. Raise your horns and bang your head.
