Style: Thrash Metal
Release date: April 9th 2010

Huh, this is one of those middle-of-the-road thrash bands who released one album 20 years ago and now have returned in the hope of repeating past glories. I never heard of German Wicca before, but that might be my mistake. They released 'Splended Deed' in 1989, and I must conclude that it didn't shake the realm of Metal.

Before you start thinking that I'm just a negative old bastard who dislikes otherwise terminated German thrash bands who should stay in their graves, I have to inject here that 'Bloodrush not at all is a bad recording. And let's put a nail through this idea too: Wicca's thrash sounds more American than German. Rather than sounding like Kreator, Helloween or Destruction (which is the case for way too many German thrash bands), what I hear in Wicca's music is rather leaning towards Forbidden and Iced Earth.

Technically, it's hard to put a finger on anything here. Whether you like vocalist Patrick's voice is of course a matter of taste, but I think it's decent, altough not fantastic.

This album is a good bet for hardcore fans of thrash metal the American way. No real surprises, no hit potential, just solid as rock thrash metal.
