5.0 out of 5 stars Groovy Baby, 11 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wrath (Audio CD)
My musical taste was and is far too varied for me to commit to any particular tribe, I'm no metal headbanger, maybe that makes my opinion more objective? To put things in context, I bought this cd, a Wu-Tang album and a Fabric mix all at the same time. A good rule of thumb for myself is, if you can dance to it I'm probably going to like it.

The great thing about this album and the element that really draws me in are the grooves, which happen to be killer, seriously, enough to rival Pantera. This is extreme metal for sure but you just can not help your toes from tapping and your head nodding. The musicianship is excellent, twin guitar virtuosity and the rhythm section are awesome, on this album the sound achieved is kind of like a hybrid of thrash with a nod to early 80s NWOBHM. Randy's vocals are much improved with more 'singing' amongst the growls and screams, I can understand most of the words this time! It's an accomplished piece of work, there have been accusations of selling out but I don't hear any compromise and I'd rather witness a band develop rather than continually produce a slight variation of the same stuff ad infinitum. I can see this album attracting more admirers without losing the hardcore who have been long time devotees, just a great album.
