This will be one of my shortest reviews this year. My Regime is a Swedish band featuring  singer/songwriter Spice, known for Spiritual Beggars, Kayser, and The Mushroom River Band. The new album Deranged Patterns is in the same style as their 2016 release Dogmas and is really enjoyable, especially when you are a fan of a band called Slayer. About 98% of the music on Deranged Patterns is an ode to them. The singing style, the drum sound, the riffs, the arrangements; nearly everything sounds like the Slayer around their Divine Intervention period. Original? No, but it sounds great! Whether you call it a tribute or plagiarism, I call it good old school well executed thrash!

Once a metal head, always a metalhead. My parents thought it would only be a period, but they were wrong. I quit to explain the beauty of metal music to others that are not into metal, because it is something you can't tell in words... It is like explaining to a teetotaller why a cold beer is so nice on a hot day... I started with bands like Accept, Metal Church, Iron Maiden and Metallica in the eighties and I think I will still listen to them when I'm stone deaf and old...
