It's a damn good album. Yeah Thrash purists will hate it, but real music fans can really enjoy it. I'm glad they didn't put out a pure Thrash album again, all of the new Thrash bands are doing that, and very few are standing out anymore, like Revocation, Vektor.
Don't get me wrong, I love Thrash. After Prog, Thrash is my favorite genre of Metal, but there's gotta be some variation in it. Hell, it isn't Metalcore, Nu Metal, or Djent. Somethings gotta be original at some point.
Absolutely fucking not. South of Heaven and Seasons in the Abyss are melodic mid-tempo thrash albums, and they are amazing. Lazarus A.D.'s new album is radio hard-rock garbage.
I loved The Onslaught when I first heard it, but now it just sounds like groove-thrash-core to me. Not terrible. Solid.
