Temple Of Brutality  


This Nashville-based band features some big names, most notably former Megadeth bassist Dave Ellefson but also W.A.S.P. drummer Stet Howland, both of whom join guitarist Peter Scheithauer in that man's other project, Killing Machine. Lethal Agenda is the 2005 debut for this group, a Pantera-esque slice of prime thrash. Scheithauer is a fine guitarist, and Howland and Ellefson are ok too (though, like a lot of modern bassists, Ellefson often finds himself buried in the mix), but Todd Barnes' shouted vocals are just too monotonous, though those into metalcore might like them better (though neither he nor this band fit the metalcore mold). In general, this sounds like by-the-numbers 90's-era thrash, decently done though pretty generic when all is said and done.
