Assassin: The Upcoming Terror

Testpress av skivan. - Desasterminator

Just thinking about this album brings a big smile to my face and I mean this in a totally positive way. This album is one of the absolute gems of the German speed metal scene - totally over the top fuckin hysterical speed metal with an unreproduceable absolutely chaotic almost South American vibe to it. This kind of "controlled" chaos simply does not happen anymore in the perfected digital age where computer controlled fine tuning is just a knob twist away. In that sense, this is a journey back in time and a journey well worth exploring. From the science fiction sounding intro of "Forbidden Reality", complete with way too loud d-drum effects, to the fade out outro of "Speed Of Light" this is speed metal at its finest and there are no weak tracks to be found here. The musicianship isn't top notch of course, but that's what makes it so great. These guys literally play for their lives and the slim chance of a potential ticket out of the dreary 9-5 lives in the bleak German industrial reality of their origin. Robert Gonella's vocals are a story of their own and should be listed as a definition of the word "hysterical" in every decent dictionary. Timeless stuff, complete with the strong German accent shining through and delivered totally out of synch with the music most of the time. But hey, admittedly it's not an easy task to fit in the lyrics to what's going on behind him. I would pay quite a lot to be a fly on the wall when those vocals were laid down, that's for sure. Anyway, this is simply one hell of a speed metal album and a must if you're into really violent and chaotic bands like Violent Force and obviously, Sodom. - defender666
