Malevolence Records – 2012 European Tour Sampler (2012) Various Artists
Posted April 1st, 2012 by Dark Emperor
In an action packed sampler, today we have Malevolence Records “2012 European Tour Sampler” featuring 4 different bands and two tracks each, a new one and an older one. With a nice spread of different musical genres (Thrash Metal and Melodic Death/Black Metal) this release is quite entertaining and shows promises for the upcoming releases of bands like KAOS and Septic Christ.
Tracks one and five belong the American Thrash Metal act KAOS. Their brand of high-octane Thrash Metal was greatly received with their last release titled “Pits of Existence” from which “Let God Sort Them Out” comes from. The new track “Infernal Bleeding” continues where the band left off and delivers super guitar work and excellent drumming. The vocals are pretty standards and aggressive enough to keep fans of ‘more brutal’ genres interested. This track has a nice melodic edge to it and we can only hope their upcoming release “Validated in Blood” is as good as this song.
Absentia from Spain provides us with songs two and six. We have earlier this year reviewed their latest release “Our Bleeding Sun” and this is where their first track comes from. With their perfect blend of Melodic Death/Black Metal, this band’s music is top notch. The track we haven’t heard from their “Heaven Still Burns” release from 2009 shows how the band’s sound has greatly matured since then, but makes up for a very engaging Melodic piece that has an old-school vibe.
Pummeling through two excellent Thrash Metal tracks, Septic Christ delivers some of the best songs in this sample with “Yearning for Salvation” and “Wake Up”. This Germany Thrash has a very well-defined 80’s bay area sound as their riffing and song structures clearly show. The catchiness of “Yearning for Salvation” is very effective and made us write down the band’s name to look for their upcoming album in the future. “Wake Up” delivers a more straight-forward approach with high similarities to bands like Kreator and Death Angel, but with a little bit less punch than their first song.
The last two tracks belong to T.C.F, a band from the Netherlands that plays a hybrid of Thrash Metal with some Hardcore elements. Their two tracks are the shortest ones of this release and quite frankly not to our full liking. “An Eye For an Eye” has that punk-ish edge that some people might enjoy, but for us is just not engaging enough. The even shorter “Core 88” has more meat on the guitar work, and sounds bit more like old-school Thrash metal, making it out of their two songs our ‘favorite’ one.
As this sampler indicates, the band’s playing at Metal Over Oostrozebeke festival on July 7th, 2012 will provide a great show due to their musical abilities. This sampler also gives you a nice insight into 4 bands that are making some nice music and should be heard. If you are a fan of Thrash Metal, this release should be of your interest since more than half of the tracks are pretty good for this genre standards.

The Malevolence Records is a small label that is step by step creandosi the roster, with this release-sampler, which contains eight pieces, two for each team within your reality, presents a view of the European tour that will involve.The tracklist reveals that the names are almost all known to listen to those who follow Aristocracy from the beginning, opening with "Internal Bleeding" thrash violently and adorned with traits "core" of the old school veterans KAOS. The trace output as a single and forerunner of the new ep "Validated In Blood" confirms the effectiveness of the proposal on the combo, heavy and massive, it is added to "Let God Sort Them Out" extracted from the preceding chapter, the full-length "The Pits Of Existence". Second in order of appearance is the sound of black / symphonic Spaniards Absentia, first with "If Only I" belongs to the latest release, "Our Bleeding Sun", also included in our database, and subsequently around the longest, "A Kiss From Hellheaven "dating back to the debut of "Heaven Still Burns". The difference between the two is clear, with the latter very immature especially from the point of view of production.We return to thrash with the Teutonic Septic Christ of "Yearning For Salvation", the sound begins softly and caressingly driven by a single melodic trickery, the departure rate is around the corner and the roots of the sound-Exodus Anthrax They come out disruptive. The piece is part of the new album "Guilty As We Were Born" and "Wake Up" is one of the tow tracks from the first album "Infected Existence" to which the undersigned is particularly fond of because it was one of the first online reviews submitted by the Aristocracy, 2009. Rounding out the games T.C.F. (Thrash Core Fanatics), which is clearly explanatory monicker on the choices of sound and the direction taken by the formation of the songwriting, the Dutch arrived ear with "An Eye For An Eye" extrapolated from "Where Madness Reigns", the debut of 2011, and "Core'88" ep including the 2009 "Speed Or Bleed". Nothing new but definitely geared to meet the demand of those living pleasantly "trapped" in the eighties. "Over Oostrozebeke Metal" is a showcase of what the show will reserve its Belgian participants and this release is ultimately just a taste, an invitation to try, if not already knew, the bands will alternate on that stage . Around so the ball to you dear readers, and perhaps you become part of your audience

The was founded in 2005, Baden-Wurttemberg Septic Christ was now the pleasure to introduce you, it could hardly have külsosegeikben could also be thrashmetálosabbak. In essence, the re-resurrection of thrash metal to be cast out into the middle of the industry, even for you, even if the predecessor band ideveszem Nothing Nothing to 2005 is established. But the Septic Christ only dilutes to this already crowded field, or increase the frequency of the handful of young and really talented bands to groups who want special monitor, well, this is definitely the answer is no, not for Septic Christ will be the decade new thrash epigones, though Guilty As We Were Born album pleasant little hidden aggression. The Germans previous 2009 Existence Infected CD bemutatkozolemezehez not had any luck, we can conclude that this time, but also music, style and fit with the cover appeared. Nadeem how to rock? By definition and by nature hardly could deny the great German sample pictures to the kids, while the oversea fast, aggressive line is much more emphatically present in the Septic Christ in his music, that's a crossover thrash or crossover to bending forces sejlenek up like Nuclear Assault, SOD, or even the Municipal Waste. Interestingly, Bobby Shortleg what a name! And szovegfrocskolos hadaros less vocal than I normally would expect, in fact, to understand and express the musical performances, of course, is not clear chorus to be sorry! The Septic Christ music recipe is basically not complicated, where wind tempo, sometimes fejleszaggato destined for weight rammer hammering in thinking about the usual melodic vocals, less surprisingly csordavokalok without, and is only indicative, sivitva operated garden short solos, a guitar stand, thanks but a bit breezy empty. First wonderment they reach the listener, when my face slam to speak, the sound is unintelligible noise was a lot of disturbing hissing, which can hardly believe that the old school supplies store is one feature that would be just the financial failure negligence. Unfortunately, it is quite left its mark on the music, better sound might be interesting would be the disk, although a production evaluation of tell the truth I do not major points deducted for this reason, in any case, enjoy merchantability hardly be good for this rehearsal noisiness they put it mildly, softly, feebly about the disk. So that you can play thrash? Okay, so of course this is the sound of the place had stood for 25 years, but those times are gone, should be noticed sometimes. Direct only as We Were Born Guilty for the sake of record I bought for my two favorite old classic thrash of the 90s and the beginning of the Tankardtol Kreatortol, categories, and if you do not, but it sounded better, even less dry, which is also a great word. The technical anomalies apart but we get some good thrash material, which is marked the band members did not want the world to redeem, so that is primarily for music will be Gulty As We Were Born, who are willing to take away the fact aside and independent of the disk, that this is already enough people they played before them wedge Septic Christ, the world quite a lot of locations. Basically, there will be decided in an otherwise less, or no, the fate of individual music to the people to believe that just as the moment basis by something new, something to be part of one. I believed, but the horses feet sticking out. Probably I would not have enjoyed so Septic Christ wedge plate when it involves my mind that was in that song which template to hear one band, but avoid misunderstanding, the death, power, or the progressive metal is given exactly the same with these phenomena face in the audience, so in this respect, the thrash metal case not conspicuous for excessive recycle for connection, but I still feel, maybe it's the style of melodic rock retro hard rock by and punk by, along with the template and the easiest solutions are often heard over and over again can be sold without plagiumvadaskodasok. It gives a kind of protection in our example is playing thrash metal bands, a kind of permissive attitude towards them, which is associated with sin by the head count will not be tapping the clear. Therefore, the 3.7 point to content themselves with Christ Septic eknak, while the disc is recommended for fans of the style, at least for those who do not expect today's thunderous, deep sound!

Septic Christ Guilty As We Were Born by Lior "Steinmetal" Stein at 04 June 2012, 5:54 PM Share this on Facebook | Share this on Twitter
Metal and politics, the politics of Metal, or to be more accurate, the politics of Thrash. With such a connection between the will to root out the worst cases of corruption and political impurity, someone has to take a stand without letting blind eye towards the phenomenon. KREATOR has been doing it constantly for years, going against some of the foundations of modern society gone bad. SEPTIC CHRIST, hailing from Germany, has been putting out the same tones of rallying up against the ones that laugh behind our backs while cleansing the filth of their deeds with the handkerchief tucked in their polished suits. "Guilty As We Were Born", a tough title that contributed to the idea of going also against the cloth, via Malevolence Records, presents clear messages under the veil of American type Thrash with no remorse, just loads of anger.
Right from the start this band's musical direction was pretty recognizable. Slamming their way in the vein of OVERKILL, SLAYER, EXODUS and MUNICIPAL WASTE, this band didn't leave any room for error that they are pissed off. I liked their sound production and how it somewhat reminded the late 80s album of OVERKILL. Every channel sounded so clear and it was easy to distinguish between the instruments. Furthermore, SEPTIC CHRIST's music was more or less obvious and pretty much expected from the get go. Without a room for something different or innovative, they brought up an on flowing old school combustion with an aim to spread their word. Within the solid tracklist, I enjoyed "Be A Man", which was pretty intense with its riffing and unrelenting heaviness followed by gang like vocal section that really thundered the place up. "Political Playground" turned up a notch with a rather Crossover conduct al'a MUNICIPAL WASTE's rapid strikes and speedy rhythms while the Bay Area style of "The Legacy" made me think of what this generation will be leaving behind after it calls it quits.
"Guilty As We Were Born" drags after it a caseload of examples of the hard life, I wouldn't think of any Metal subgenre that would have been appropriate other than Thrash to this manifestation. However, I would say that SEPTIC CHRIST will have a little work to produce a better result. I liked their orientation and their sound but a number of tunes in their list didn't convince as I would have wanted. This is their second album and maybe three is a charm.
