    Listened to parts of new Havok on YT - damn it's bland and boring. Drumming is far from what it used to be on TIU, riffs are desperately trying to be interesting but lots of them is of start-stop kind, which really kills the flow/energy and rest is wannabe Voivod/Vektor/Coroner technical riffs that are just bad.
    Can't say I expected much, but seeing all the 9-10/10 reviews makes me wonder what they see in it.

    ... Havok have almost always been a boring band.

    I'll definitely check it out. But Kreator aren't blackend thrash. They're not black anything.


    I've only listened to it once so i cant really comment on it being better than their last three. But their last few albums are clearly their best work since Coma of Souls ... which was released in 1990. So i dont see how that comment would be unrealistic.

    New Havok is so musically tryhard and heavy handed with the lyrics I couldn't make it through the first 3 songs.

    HEY YOU! DO YOU LIKE CONFORMITY? COMFORMITY IS FOR CONFORMISTS! KILL CONFORMITY....CONFORMICIDE!!

    CONFORMITY GON' CONFORM

    I listened to this entire album and the vocalist needs to tell everyone how he really feels. Parts of it are okay but overall it's a huge hunk of shit. I would rather listen to Max Cavalera shit into a microphone than this.

    So, I've been listening to the new Havok album this morning. I prefer Time Is Up. That being said, the band isn't all that great to me.

    Also, these lyrics are some of the most painfully cringeworthy political lyrics that I've heard since Green Day's Revolution Radio and El Tigre's I'm With Her. Utter tripe.

    It's been pretty downhill since Time Is Up. Haven't heard the new one but Time Is Up is a modern thrash classic.

    ... good album, but masterpiece? Far from it imo. Not a single 5 star track on there.

    Saw this in Divebomb Records newsletter:

    NEW SIGNING - ARBITRATER

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Contracts are signed, at long last, and we are excited to announce an official ARBITRATER 2 CD reissue set can now be put into motion for release later in 2017. Their debut album, Balance Of Power, will be making it's CD debut, while sophomore album, Darkened Reality, has been out of print on CD for over 20 years. Digitally remastered with The Conquest demo to be added as bonus tracks plus new essay by noted author, Ian Glasper.



    Remember these guys from my youth, not bad for UK thrash, probably pick it up.

    I wouldn't say masterpiece, but classic yeah. The songs are easily accessible and catchy to someone getting into modern thrash and deserve to be mentioned. Excellent drumming on that album. It's straightforward but solid like the ac/dc of modern thrash

    new Havok isn't very good. Disappointing
    New Warbringer sounds promising though

    Got the new Warbringer in the other day, listened to it today. Seems like a Disc 2 for Worlds Torn Asunder; everything's the same but not quite as fresh. It's solid, but it doesn't approach the new Power Trip, and frankly I like Worlds Torn Asunder more.

    I'll have to get that Power Trip album.
    Not a huge fan like a lot of you guys are, but it's cool

    The new Warbringer album is great but not as good as Worlds Torn As Under or Waking Into Nightmares.

    Worlds Torn Asunder is a modern thrash masterpiece. I dont think they'll be topping that album.

    This one deserves its own spot for creativity

    Been checking out this 1990's German thrash album, pretty cool.

    This is awesome.
