The End A.D-S/T (2016)

If you start to listen closer  you will realize not only are the instrumentals tight and well written, but the vocals match up with them perfectly.  It may seem that what’s being done on it has been done a thousand times before, but you must consider that these guys are from the 80’s  Philly Thrash and Hardcore scene. This album is just strictly Metal, nothing else. It consists of fast and uplifting beats, crushing and speedy riffs, godly and all around the place bass playing, and angry yet clever vocals. The solos are good too. One thing that strikes me as odd is that you can actually hear the bass on this album. And not only can you hear it, but it is actually very loud, and also all over the place. Sometimes it will be playing nothing like what the guitars are playing, but it fits in tight and perfectly. The tone is very clear and has a cool crunch to it that fits the thrash style rather well. I will tend to use the word “tight” a lot in this review because overall that’s the best word to describe how it sounds, as the instruments all exist in perfect harmony. There are some really cool thrashy sounding riffs here. The guitar tone is very thick and heavy, and the chromatic guitar playing creates a very cool mood. They don’t really slow down at all but that’s how the music is supposed to be. This album receives a high score for its originality, tight playing, and never ending energy. I bet you can always listen to it and never get bored of it, it can’t be overdone. Good job guys !
