THOUGHTS OF RUIN – Reclaim The Throne CD
Never like new-school/groove much but this is an exception!
Another Irish powerhouse, this time a younger one but ballsy enough to freshen things up by mixing-up new-school/groove metal influences with the crushing thrashing-metal-core of yesterday. This reviewer has never been able to find much fun in the metal of the now but this could be it!
“This young Irish outfit offers a modern mix of thrash, death and groove. By all means the all-out thrash attacks work best (“Relic”, “God Complex”), but don’t expect the moshing to go through the whole song, since the guys are pretty eager to pack the other influences inside, too. The vicious semi-death vocals are at times interrupted by much better clean ones, very similar to the ones used by Burton Bell (Fear Factory, GZR).” – thethrashmetalguide.com
