Last month it was UK's thrash combo Abadden that came with a cool thrash release, now it's Elimination's time. They have released two EP's since their start in 2007 and now they have canned their debut. Like so many of the New wave of thrash outbursts they are as original as a nude figure in a porn movie. Again don't expect any new musical inventions. It is neckbreaking thrash with screaming vocals, solid riffs and fast drumming properly executed.
Many of the songs have nice grooves and will create big pits when played live. Nevertheless, I miss something. The production could have been a bit rougher in my opinion; it sounds a bit too polished and too over-produced to really hit me in the face. Probably many thrash fans will not agree with me and praise this debut straight into heaven or hell, but I have my doubts. Perhaps I'm spoiled and is it just the wrong time of the week, but I'm quite certain I will say the same if you ask me next month.
All in all Elimination has made a nice debut-album, which will find it's way to many thrash fans that dig the new bands like Municipal Waste, Gama Bomb, Evile; as well as Forbidden and all the other original thrash bands from years ago.
