Too Hot to Burn

Teutonic Thrash

Release date: October 29th 2010
Playing time: 40:09

I have lost count of how many times I have written this:
"This album is technically good, but it fataly lacks originality"!
I am not saying that every new album has to reinvent Metal. I am not blind to the power of inspiration. All this comes down to is this: I like seasoning! 

Deathfist's Teutonic Thrash style is that of speedy and dirty Destruction, rather than melodious Sodom or militant Kreator, if one must compare them with their peers.

Actually it is by far too much like Destruction. The primary difference is the vocals. If like the way that Abbath of Immortal sounds like Popeye the Sailor, you really should listen to Corinna Becker of Deathfist! During the first songs her voice has a certain charm about it. At least it is unheard of! But as the album continues I just get fed up.

Technically I have no complaints. Good recording, good musicians, good editing etc. But this is music of the 80's. Do not doubt my love for a lot of music from the 80's - I would just like things to evolve a little bit.

Too Hot to Burn could have made it to the German Top of the Heavy Pops in 1986. Today it is equivalent to cultural grave robbery...
