After two demos German band Braindeadz has released their debut album called “Hang‘em Highschool”. We get 9 tracks of 80’s Thrash. To me Braindeadz is a mix of; DESTRUCTOR, WHIPLASH, early SODOM and SADUS.

So, when I listen to this CD I feel I’m back in the 80’s when Thrash gave Metal a deserved kick in the butt. This album needed a few spins in my CD-player to sink in. The production is very 80’s too, and it is possible that you sit there a little estranged by both the music and the production the first time you listen to this album, but if you listen to it several times, the songs will get plausible and will show us that Braindeadz are hopeful newcomers. In fact I have nothing more to say about this album… except for one thing; - If you are into 80’s Thrash Metal I suggest you should give this album a listen.
