ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Giving a morbid breath into the incarnate of thrash metal having formed in the late summer of 2005 in Wisconsin, Lazarus arises and brings resurrection to its style in a music scene of mediocrity. A unique complexity, in raging tempos that surpass all limits known to those of sound and light, comes to be complete as in unison as if a machine compsed and performed them itself. Thus engraving a memory like scar that leaves all of Lazarus listeners humming the toughest of riffs. Upon completing thier self produced demo in early 2006, Lazarus rapidly obtained an unfailing fan base while touring the midwest and opening up for major actus such as Anthrax, Monstrosity, and Switched. Achieving the highest of appraise, this four piece crusade mutates thier stages and venues into a battlefield in which long hair, shredding, and breakdowns always reign upon the bloodshed of mosh-pits. In early 2007 Lazarus entered the studio to record their debut full length cd "The Onslaught" with Chris Djuricic of Studio One. Mastering duties were held by none other than Testament/Death guitarist James Murphy. Lazarus plans to conquer more and more ground by supporting the cd for the months to come.

Incredible
This album has excellent written all over it. This band is brilliant. This cd hasn't left my stereo for too long before I have to put it back in. This cd will prove thrash is coming back and in one powerful force! You'd be insane not to own this album and blast it loud.

Chris Gleason

This Industrial-sounding thrash metal is worth its weight in gold!
This cd reminds me of a faster, more moshing Ministry. it has the sound of industrial but has the speed of Metallica. Love it!

Mark

Excellent CD
Seems more & more quality bands are selling their own music now with no help from leeching record companies; which is the way forward if you want full creative control of your music...anyway!
This band would have easily stood out in the 80's thrash scene and been a match for anyone. Picture a cross between Tankard & Nuclear Assault with a sprinkling of the more modern "Occult/Legion of the Damned" and you have Lazarus.
I bought this CD straight away, soon as I heard it I was hooked. The riffs are old school & superb, I love that kinda vocal style and as the person said above, the musicianship is excellent.
This is one of those albums that really does not have a bad song on it. The production suits the style of music, the snare drum sounds amazing, really organic, the bass drums are well recorded and played...not overbearing, but sit nicely in the mix as do all the instruments, especially the bass. Hats off to the producer Chris Djuricic, he really caught the old school thrash sound perfectly and when you see the legendary name James Murphy who mastered the album being associated with a band, you know it's gonna be top notch stuff.
The song Last Breath is a real scorcher of an opening track, heavy riffs, machine gun bass drums, then power chords floating over the top of a great rhythmn section before exploding into top drawer thrash metal and vocals that make you wanna wear tight jeans, baseball boots, drink buds and hang out with yur mates at a thrash gig in the 1980's...love it.
There's more n more bands going back to an old school style. Hopefully we'll see the end of Emo/Gothic style music which really destroys metal as we know it.
Good luck Lazarus; hope we see you guys live if you ever play in Scotland.

Absolutely brilliant.
Can't complain about this CD, good riffs, good vokills - excellent! Good job (thumbs up) - can't wait for next release!

Seth Richtsmeier

Incredibly promising and a great discovery
Why is their Wisconsin heritage surprising? Because these guys sound like they're from southern California or even Europe, two historical locales for the genre. And everyone is aware the Swedes are metal aficionados, let's not forget. But can four badger gentlemen make it in the scene? If The Onslaught is any representation, absolutely they can.

The first two tracks are a great start to the debut. "Last Breath" kicks off blistering and then becomes a Metallica-like song in the chug-chugging of guitars. The vocals don't even kick in until a minute and a half in, and they don't need to because the riffing does all the work. "Thou Shalt Not Fear" just screams Testament and that's all that needs to be said. It's hard to consider what the metal world would be like without those two monumental influences. The remainder of the album continues to remain powerfully aggressive with plenty of solos throughout. The pace of every song is intense; there's no time to stop to rest the ears.

Lazarus A.D. are incredibly promising and are a great discovery for someone looking for fresh, innovative stuff. These guys sound like they've been at it for years. If The Onslaught is just the tip of the iceberg for what's to come, there truly will be an onslaught to come.

What's not to like!!!
Top to bottom, this is a killer album. Song writing, musicianship, production, it's all here. It's a 90s-style feeling disc without feeling like a rip-off of those bands. This is pure thrash, and pure gold.

David Chiletz

Killer...simply killer
Heavy crunching riffs to go with some of the best metal songs ever written is the only way I can describe Kenosha's homeboys. They combine classic thrash metal with modernized thrash better than I've ever heard before. I can't wait to get a chance to see them live. Do yourself a favor and buy this CD now....before it goes out of stock again. LOL.
