“Secondary Effects”, “Organic Canvas”, “Layers of Lies” and “Contaminated”, just to name a few tracks from the latest DARKANE album, “Layers of Lies”, has rocked my world since I received this promo.

I’m positive surprised here… I certainly did not expect this album to be this good! Yes, I really like it… and I’m sure that I’m not the only one who thinks this album is FUCKING GREAT MODERN THRASH!

Fast and furious drumming, fast but very memorable guitar riffs and a singer with an angry voice… I couldn’t wish for more! Mainly, this is presented in a merciless tempo but always with suitable mighty slow parts, and the 12 tracks there is to be found here on, “Layers of Lies” will come over you like a thief in the night and destroy you without mercy. The more I listen to this album, the more I like it!

I could go on and on telling you about this album… the music…. the production… the cover artwork… but hell no… Who claims to be a Thrash Metal-freak should at least give this album a listen, and screw what other people think, you buy music because you like Metal and the band that's playing it, it’s not really up to someone else whether or not a CD is good or bad, that's your opinion.

I really like this album a lot… but then again… this is just MY opinion. This is an album from a band that deserves so much more then they have ever gotten. …if you ask me!

Recommended tracks: Take your pick!
