Vio-Lence - Eternal Nightmare




Either everyone has never heard of this album, or have heard it and loved it. Of course, I pertain to the latter here, because this album is one of a kind.

Fast, technical and all around brilliant is what I would use to describe this album. The guitar work is remarkable, especially the riffs. I would go as far to say that the riffs on this album are some of the best in thrash metal. The guitar solos are very fast and compliment the riffs and rest of the song. The drumming is very fast as well and keeps up the high pace of this album. The vocals are powerful and pretty angry as well, which fits the theme of this album.

I do love this album and it is AMAZING, but it's #30 because there are other albums that I love more out of personal preference. Same goes with a lot of albums on here. If you haven't heard this band or album before and you claim you love thrash, you don't love thrash until you listen to it. Prepare to be blown away.

Highlights:
Bodies on Bodies
Eternal Nightmare
Kill on Command
Fucking classic! I still have a copy of that shit on fucking audio cassette.

Toxic Holocaust - An Overdose of Death




Toxic Holocaust has always been an... interesting band. They play a style of black/thrash that sounds unique due to the heavy punk and speed metal influence. It really shows the most on this album, every song is varied throughout the whole thing.

You have fast songs like Wild Dogs, Nuke the Cross, and Gravelord. And then you have the mid paced ones like The Lord of the Wasteland and Feedback, Blood & Distortion. I'm particularly fond of the really fast tracks, since that's my thing, but Toxic Holocaust do it right no matter what they're (he's?) writing.

If you're a fan of black/thrash and punk and for some reason haven't heard this album, then you'll really enjoy it.

Also, that album cover

Highlights:
Gravelord
War is Hell
Wild Dogs
Hell on Earth >> A Overdose of Death

But really, I never got into Hell on Earth all that much. Maybe a couple more listens but An Overdose of Death is just my favorite TH album.

When I first heard Hell on Earth about 5 or 6 years ago, I didn't dig it. I listened to the first few tracks and didn't think much of it. I picked it back up in 2008 and have been listening to it regularly since.

Here are my favorites:
Death Camp

Time to Die

Toxik - Think This




Toxik plays an excellent combination of speed and thrash with a lot of technicality, and it's easy to see in this album.

As mentioned before, Think This is VERY technical. The song structures vary often and the instrumentality is pretty complicated in terms of thrash. Josh Christian is an AMAZING guitarist and shows it on here. Not only are the riffs catchy, technical and all around great, but his solos are just incredible. The best example of this is in the song Shotgun Logic. Not only can he play fast, but you can definitely tell he has a lot of emotion in his playing when played over the clean rhythm.

This song gets a special mention because I love it so much and I will put the link in the highlights. There Stood the Fence is quite possibly the best and beautiful ballad I have ever heard. The vocals and guitars just make that song what it is. PLEASE check it out!

The vocals can be hit or miss with people. They are VERY high pitched but do fit in with what Toxik play. I personally love them and if you can't get into high clean vocals altogether this album is a great example of how they are used well.

Fans of speed, thrash and technical music - Please, check this album out if you haven't already! You will not be disappointed!

And as usual, I gotta mention the awesome cover on here. They did an AMAZING job with Led Zeppelin's Out on the Tiles!

Highlights:
Spontaneous
Shotgun Logic
There Stood the Fence
