Deceiver Thrashing Heavy Metal

Deceiver Thrashing Heavy Metal
Between song titles like "Graveyard Lover" and "Coma of Death Toxication" (a Motörhead-meets-Sepultura album highlight) and the fact that the band reunited to record this damn thing, we had to give Thrashing Heavy Metal (love it!) a bit of attention. And this retro-Celtic Frost-loving blackened thrash splatter will certainly be appreciated by those who like it raw, caveman-esque and devoid of any meaning except the greatest one of all: thrashing hard. Way heavier than most of today's retro-thrash party hounds (more Teutonic and first-gen black metal, less Santa Cruz and second-gen Suicidal Tendencies), this is, sadly, this Swedish group's last disc, as they have disbanded to individually pursue, one can hope, even higher elevations of thrashing.
