A German band, taking their name from the classic album by
there's really no doubt in anyone's mind as to what these guys
play, is there?
Yep, it's retro Germanic thrash through and through, evoking
and the hordes of countrymen that were bashing this stuff out
twenty years ago.
So, there's nothing remotely original here, nor anything modern
(save, perhaps, a somewhat updated production),
but that doesn't mean it's not worth one's time, especially given
that retro thrash is all the rage in 2008.
Like everyone else reliving the glory days of thrash,
time will tell if Hellish Crossfire progress beyond rehashing the past,
but Slaves Of The Burning Pentagram
(how's that for a stereotypical
thrash album title?) is highly entertaining and energetic, and a clear
choice for those into classic German thrash.
Iron Tyrant (Thomas Werner)
Iron Incubus (Christian Wachter)
Don Promillo (Siggi)
Possessor (Patrick Tauch)
