<The Brutal Symbiosis of Death & Thrash>

In the late '80s to early '90s, when Thrash Metal was starting to become stale and bedridden, bands had to come up with a way to survive and thrive. Some bands decided to appeal to a larger base of listeners(Metallica with their eponymous record) and others had made similar decisions by tampering with other genres(Punk Sodom and Industrial Kreator, for example). Some bands, however, shifted their sound towards an extremer path. Sure, there were "Brutal Thrash" bands like Dark Angel, but this was on a higher tier. Soon enough Death & Thrash hybrid bands became prevalent.

Now this Teutonic band, Protector, is one of those bands. The two EPs and two full-releases had proved that these German thrashers were solid as hell. But this album just tops everything they had done in a span of 40 mind-numbing minutes. This stuff is way more brutal and ripping than Urm the Mad and all the songs match the quality of their Leviathan' Desire EP, some songs even being better.

Here, I've made space for a paragraph dedicated to praising Protector's song/riffwriting skills, which are straight-out amazing. The riffs are fresh and creative and has smelly rotten corpse juices dribbling out of 'em. One song presents multiple riffs but is mostly presented around one main riff. Standard Thrash Metal structure. Even so it doesn't feel boring because the riffs, again, are so well written. A Shedding of Skin, Face Fear, Doomed to Fa

뇌가 필요없을 정도는 아닌듯하다. 이 밴드의 장점은 굉장히 스트레이트하고 폭력적이면서도 곡 중간중간마다 깜짝 놀랄 정도의 특유의 분위기를 가지고 있다는 것이 아닐까? 당시의 데스래쉬 명반들에 비추어봐도 전혀 뒤떨어지지 않는다.
