Dreaded Mortuary-Vulgar Way To Die (2015)

Here is a band from Philippines with a female on vocals with a sound reminiscent of D.R.I., Suicidal Tendencies, and a lot of the more straight razor US 80s thrash/speed metal acts, they sound like they're having a blast. I'd say they are a little less riff oriented than a Municipal Waste, but it's still that same, fun style. There are 10 tracks, a pastiche of good old 80s thrash topics are covered in the lyrics. Gang shouts, alcoholic lyrics, it's all here, so if you have a fetish for Violence, Tankard, and all the wild beer crazed thrash and punk of that amazing decade, you may really want to check this out. I had a fun enough time listening once through the album once. The riffs and solos and energy are perfectly adequate for the style. However, if you just want a good time, or something to skate or shred to, and you're riding this recent nostalgic wave of crossover bands, then this is for you.
