Total Tracks:

Massacre Elite is the third album from these Italian thrashers. Like the album, the review isn’t very long, but that isn’t necessary. Quality is more important than quantity. Stefano Mini’s voice sounds like he is an offspring of Bobby ‘Blitz’, Udo Dirkscheider, and Throsten Bergman (Living Death). That being said, it shouldn’t be a surprise I think that the music also has similarities with Overkill. In fact, the thrash National Suicide tortures the world with is rather old school: a nice mix of Destruction, Exodus, Overkill and some crossover influences reminding of Nuclear Assault.

I don’t need to say much more about the music, or it must be that Andreoli (bass) and  drummer Emilano play tighter than an ants ass. There have been quite a few good thrash albums this year, but National Suicide don’t have to be ashamed for their new birth. It is of high quality and it suits me just fine!

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...
