Second album by the German thrash band Dust Bolt. I can be rather short here.
This band plays thrash the way we hear it from a band like Kreator and then with
a little Bay Area influence. The production is o.k., the musicians are well
skilled, the songs are tight played and one thrash riff after the other is being
spit in your face. The drums sound very tight and are probably the most
interesting part on this album. The vocals are aggressive and stick to the music.
The best song in my opinion is "The Monotonous - Distant Scream", which is a
more epic track, with a little less tempo than the rest of the material. With "Future
Shock" they honor one of the most underestimated bands with a nice performed
far nothing wrong, but that's about it. I don't hear a lot progression compared
with the first album. The bigger part of the songs are not interesting enough,
there is not an original riff or something else we haven't heard in the past 30
years. For a thrash fan and then especially the younger new wave of thrash fans,
there is enough to enjoy, but there are so many (older) bands who did the same
trick, but then a lot better and much more original.
