Living Death - Metal Revolution - October, 1985

I didn't review Living Death's first album because it sounded more like AC/DC than it did Slayer, but they decided to up the aggression on their second album. It's not all that original, and the singer sounds like Brian Johnson with an elastic tied around his nuts but there's some pretty nice, lively sounding thrash here. There are still some pretty rock-ish sounding numbers, but even those feature more aggressive riffing that sets this album apart from the power chord rock of the first one.

Standouts: Road of Destiny, Rulers Must Come, Killing Machine

Score: 6/10
I love inside jokes, I'd love to be a part of one some day.
