Peace Sells is cool but it always seemed pretty dark to me
^by dark do you mean the mix-original is a bit muffled but honest .
or do you mean the feel & atmosphere of the album.i agree on both counts.
On the original mix i cant really hear the double bass drum or bass much.
the remasters really bring the double bass out.
I didn't realize Sigh was the one putting out the new album when I first read that. Sweet!
Hammer Of The Witch
Out March 18th we have this 42 minute 13 song Hardcore/Thrash album from the legendary Ohio band. I'm no expert in Hardcore bands but like at times when we see a Thrash mix like this album is.
You know it is American right in the first 50 seconds. The best part of this album is the fact that it contains not a sliver of Mall-core, none! There is a wonderful bass drum groove and big guitars even though the leads have a basic low intelligence "punk" level of complexity. The songs are short stripped down and right to the point. The vocals are legible and screaming with vocals having a mix sound between Napalm Death and early Accept.
The sound is heavy and fast with a contagious groove built into every song. Great breaks and consistent bass integration along into the multi-tracked guitar cords.
This album is refreshing in a good way and just shows once more that the Hardcore influence in Thrash and Metal is not dead. Along with the missing Mall-core there is also a missing Grindcore element making this release a pure statement.
Get it! You will like it!
