real Metal from a real Metal band. I can’t believe I hesitated a
bit when I was given the opportunity to review this album because
this is a splendid Thrash Metal attack. But who the hell am I
talking about? – I’m talking about a Danish band called Lipid
and their brand new album titled “Deliver us from Evil”.
was formed in the middle of the 90’s and they have released a
couple of demo EP’s and then in 2003 they released their debut
album called “Hagridden” (pieced together from the recordings of
the 2 EP’s).
let’s get back to this new album “Deliver us from Evil”. The
first time I threw it in my CD-player my first reaction was; damn…
is this Slayer? But after a few seconds I came to my senses and
discovered that it wasn’t Slayer but the riff in the first track
“He Who Hate All” could have been written by Slayer, I’m sure.
The music really took me by surprise because Lipid is catchy, brutal and thrashy at the same time.
get 9 tracks. 9 splendid Thrash tracks with everything I love about
Thrash. Mid-tempo, up-tempo, sometimes they slow down and are heavy
as hell… sometime the put the pedal to the metal and Thrash like
there’s no tomorrow. The vocals of Søren Pedersen suit the music
fine. His voice is rough and brutal but so is the music, so it
couldn’t get any better than this.
production done by Jacob Hansen and Tommy Hansen is excellent too.
Especially the sound of the guitars is great. They sound so METAL
and crunchy that you’re totally knocked out of your socks!
There’s not a single weak track to be found on this release so
it’s very hard for me to name any standout tracks.
one thing is for sure; this is a killer, and as a Thrash Metal fan
with a good taste, you shouldn't pass this by.
