Warfield-Wrecking Command (2018)

Here comes the simple recipe for a strong thrash metal album. You need at least 4 guys (or girls). Everyone of them has to be a live wire. They do not need to be technically perfect, but they must have a master plan with a clear goal: total sonic devastation. Furthermore, it is helpful to have a talent for coherent compositions and a penchant for riffs that are sharp enough to stab the listener in the twinkling of an eye. (Of course, only in the figurative sense.) But the most important thing is the right attitude. Youthful recklessness is essential, a small portion of naivety does no harm. Warfield possesses all the ingredients for this recipe. This album features an explosive mix of riffs, drumming, bass lines and brutal vocals. The very abrasive guitar sound constituted the most outstanding feature of the production. Due to the continually increasing fury of the opener, the guitars dominated the mix right from the beginning. Finally, to be quite fair, this album is one of the greatest thrash release of Europe these days, it clearly deserve its praise and status among the new and old school metalheads. I definitely recommend this record, it's actually a great one to start with. What you get is a great variety of thrashing riffs and lots of aggression. Go ahead and take a listen, or if you already did once, do it again!
