I first threw this brand new album from Contradiction
in my hard-tried CD-player I was a little disappointed. Mostly
because I find the riffs in the first track “Your God” too close
to the riffs in Slayer’s “Angel of Death” and somehow the
vocals from Oliver “Koffer” Lux annoyed me at first, but now
several listens later I like this album a lot.
we get here is 12 tracks of Thrash Metal in the same vein as bands
like Slayer, Testament, Sepultura, Kreator and Exodus. In my humble
opinion it needs a few spins in the CD-player to open up, but when
it does, you’re in for a Metal-feast. Even though you can
find sing-along choruses on “The Warchitect” the music is still
Heavy, Thrashy and aggressive enough to melt iron. The vocals are
aggressive and harsh, but audible and the tracks are memorable and
will stick in your head for hours.
take a listen to track 5, “Shadowsoul”, the drums pounds away a
rhythm that will make you head bang instantly and the chorus sticks
like glue. But don’t forget the guitars… be sure of that
Contradiction will kick
you sorry little ass and make you head bang the entire time. OR…
what about the track called “Thrash Metal”? Absolutely a killer
track… the rhythms… the drums… the guitar-riffs… the chorus,
everything seems to fits like a glove. One of the best Thrash Metal
tracks I ever heard in my life… and I know a few Thrash songs,
believe me, I do.
even get a Motörhead cover here… “Rock ’n’ Roll”. Nice
work here too. I could go on, but I don’t see the point. But I do
see a point in you ordering this CD right away.
order 5 and give some away to your friends and let them discover a
REAL Metal CD.
the way, the production is first-class too; the music comes out
pretty pressuring of your speakers…so better beware :)
