Game Over
For Humanity
Style: Speed/Thrash Metal
Release date: 2 February, 2015
Playing time: 62:09

After the signing of a contract with Scarlet Records and the release of a new album in June last year the Italians GAME OVER indicate that their new label is interested in re-releasing of „For Humanity“.

Perhaps „For Humanityhad not received the attention that the quartet wanted, but there are reasons for this. The dynamic songs are full of good and fast riffs, with rather melodic  melody lines. The vocals of Reno do not succeed to follow and develop the songs. The decision for the back-vocals is unvaried, and this takes the specific features of the definite tracks. It is clear that the main inspirations of the four musicians are in The Big 4. The aspiration was to lift up the fast-motion, and the necessary quantity groove to be included. As a result the short songs do not become boring, but they miss this pinch of inspiration that could make them exceptional.

The three bonus tracks added to the album are live performances. The cover song of MOTORHEAD's „Iron Fistis in a rather speedy variant of the song, and the two remaining songs are from the same album by the Italians. However my attempt to find more information about such a planned release was unsuccessful.

„For Humanity“ remains a release for the strong admirers of speed/thrash metal. The album does not shine with something exceptional, but it gives lots of pleasant moments, but the bonus tracks sound like a bootleg.
