Thanatos - Undead.Unholy.Divine

  | CD

Thanatos-Undead.Unholy.Divine Back in middle 80's early 90's Holland was strongly present in the map of European aggressive metal. Bands as PESTILENCE , ASPHYX and of course THANATOS definitely deserved full respect with albums like "Realms of Ecstasy" which is until now a must-have for all deathsters. But after all these years and a previous disappointing album can THANATOS still excite us?

After several spins of their new effort "Undead.Unholy.Divne" the answer is without fear and definely yes! Maybe it doesn't reach the greatness of "Realm of Ecstasy" but it's obvious that THANATOS didn't forget how to play brilliant death/thrash. When the opening track "Lambs to the Slaughter" begins you're sure from the first listening that this record is worthy to be part of your extreme metal record collection. Everything sounds great, heavy death metal guitars, lots of thrash riffs and breakdowns, furious blastbeats, and hateful vocals. All these are there without the exaggerations used by lots of new death metal bands; everything is there in a correct "measured" way and quantity. The production is very smart, mixing the old school feeling and sound with the possibilities of modern technology. THANATOS can handle all their extreme elements with capacity and in the end the final result is exactly what we would expect from them. Honest death/thrash, that is. Recommented tracks: "Lambs to the slaughter" , "Undead.Unholy.Divine" , "The sing of Sdako" (superb doom guitars) , "Godforsaken"
