<Maybe Religious Brutal Thrash Galore!>

I was writing a long-ass review on this album, but it got scrapped in the end. Anyways, this is some really impressive Brutal Thrash Metal work here. I've been listening to this album a lot for the last few days. The whole album sounds like it's straight out from Death Angel's studio album, or Slayer's secret project that explores Kerry King's deep, undisclosed love for less harsh vocals.

The guitars make up over half of the brutality in this album while the drums are a bit weak. The riffs they came up with there are top-notch and sometimes insanely good. Forsaken Hatred, Idolatry and Subconcious have some really clever and fresh riffs, which is pretty neato! Overall production quality? Muddy but not grainy. It all comes up to an album worth collecting.

+ This album is really religious. It doesn't actually pinpoint one specific religion as it features symbols of multiple Abrahamic religions on the album cover. I am really not sure if they're a Christian band, and if the lyrics are supposed to be pro-Christian ("you worship satan prepare to die") or just tongue-in-cheek. Afterall, killing someone who worships Satan isn't very Christian of someone.

Or.. is it??

어지간한 데스메탈을 능가하는 극한의 헤비함. 작살나는 리프와 묵직함으로 중무장한 중전차같은 앨범. 무자비한 스래쉬메탈을 찾고 있다면 필청 앨범!

엄청 거슬리는 보컬빼고는 화끈하게 달리는 올드스쿨쓰레시!
level 7   80/100
데스/스래쉬의 육중함을 극대화 시켰는데 리프는 데스메탈의 색체는 거의 없다시피해서 말 그대로 스래쉬에서 음을 더 낮게하고 육중함을 극대화 시킨 데스/스래쉬의 전형을 잘 보여준다. 보컬이 좀 맹물 같아서 거슬리긴 하는데 듣다보면 크게 문제가 되는건 아닌거 같다.

크리스찬 밴드로 유명한 데바스테이션의 마지막 앨범입니다... 별 특색 없었던 전작들과 달리 상당히 알찬 리프들로 채워져있는 데스래쉬의 걸작입니다... ㅇㅅㅇ
