I have lost
count of how many times I have written this:
"This album is technically good, but it fataly lacks originality"!
I am not saying that every new album has to reinvent Metal. I am not blind to
the power of inspiration. All this comes down to is this: I like seasoning!
Teutonic Thrash style is that of speedy and dirty Destruction, rather than
melodious Sodom or militant Kreator, if one must
compare them with their peers.
Actually it is by far too much like Destruction. The primary difference is the
vocals. If like the way that Abbath of Immortal
sounds like Popeye the Sailor, you really should listen to Corinna Becker of Deathfist!
During the first songs her voice has a certain charm about it. At least it is
unheard of! But as the album continues I just get fed up.
Technically I have no complaints. Good recording, good musicians, good editing
etc. But this is music of the 80's. Do not doubt my love for a lot of music from
the 80's - I would just like things to evolve a little bit.
Too Hot to Burn could have made it to the German Top of the Heavy Pops in 1986.
Today it is equivalent to cultural grave
