RATING: 

German band Fateful Finality was founded in 2007 and this is their 3th full-length release. The band already reached the final of the Wacken Metal Battle in 2012, but unfortunately did not win. The music is a combination of old school thrash influences with a more modern more groovy thrash approach. There is also a variety in singing styles, Patrick deals with the cleaner singing, Simon takes care of the brutal aggressive ones. This brings in a lot of variety and makes the album sound quite interesting.

After a short intro the first track immediately opens fast and furious. Fateful Finality certainly does not invent the wheel, but they do their job well. Influences of bands like Lamb of God, Darkane, Testament and Exodus can be heard throughout the album. Fans of those bands will certainly find something to enjoy. Also the bonus track, is a nice song. A ballad building up from soft to heavier in a kind of Testament-ballad style.

All in all a fine thrash album that will not change the world, but that will surely be a welcome Christmas gift.

Once a metal head, always a metalhead. My parents thought it would only be a period, but they were wrong. I quit to explain the beauty of metal music to others that are not into metal, because it is something you can't tell in words... It is like explaining to a teetotaller why a cold beer is so nice on a hot day... I started with bands like Accept, Metal Church, Iron Maiden and Metallica in the eighties and I think I will still listen to them when I'm stone deaf and old...
