Overkill - Feel The Fire

Not quite Thrash. Sounds like a bridge from NWOBHM to Thrash. Good stuff for sure. This record didn't come out until '85. I guess some of the songs were written in '83. If this record had come out in '83 these guys would have been legends. Instead they are just Over Kill.

Kreator - Endless Pain

Venom meets early Slayer. The first album from Kreator. Really fast and raw.

Kreator - Phantom Antichrist

Legendary Thrash/Death Metal band Kreator. How many people on this album played on the classic albums of the mid and late 80's?

This album rips and smokes. The only problem is there's a big commercial sound going on here in the choruses and some of the chant along/anthem type vocals. If you can get past that, this thing rips and smokes. Very slick production.

For fans of Slayer. Not so much for fans of Kreator old school. People say the last 4 Kreator albums all sound pretty much like this.

Nile - At The Gates Of Sethu

Technical Death Metal. This is nuts but, there's enough to grab a hold of here though. Streamlined production that serves the music well. Fast.

Nile fans seem to like this release least of all. It's been getting quite a bit of play time in the car, I will tell you that.
