Triple Thrash Treat was my favorite part of Headbangers Ball on MTV back in the day… And my old chum Frederik just brought me back in time today, when he returned three classic thrash albums he borrowed from me 20 years ago (or so).
To be honest, I had completely forgotten that I had those lps, and I was stoked to get them back. Many a time I have been looking at them on discogs, but felt they were too expensive, so the thrill of suddenly owning them is huge.
The records are:
Sodom was the first band I saw live in Copenhagen, they played with Whiplash April 6th 1988. It was quite a good show.
Anyway, these three records are very close to my heart, being rough and energetic and catchy as hell.
Did I mention that the cover of Mortal Way Of Live is among the most kinky album sleeves ever? Have a look:
Over and out!
I first learned of Tribulation after reading a review of their 2008 album The Horror. I bough it, and loved it. The thrashy death metal on that lp is fresh and invigorating. Listening to The Horror while writing this review, I am surprised to find that I can recognize many details in it, that reminds me of The Children Of The Night. But still, The Horror is quite straight forward.
The Children of The Night is anything but straight forward. Laddies and gentlemen. We might have the beginning of the future of metal here.
There, I said it!!
The Children Of The Night is a fantastic lp. I have listened to it quite a lot since its release, and haven’t really begun to fathom its depths yet. But smack my arse and call me Charlie! This is some good music, that transcends genres and rules. I taste Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Morbid Angel, Entombed, Ulver and so many other influences. I’ll be surprised if this lp oesn’t end up on top of many a Best of 2015-list.
Did I mention that it is a double vinyl with music on three sides, and a cool etching on side 4?
I might return with a better review – maybe even a track by track – later. For now, I’ll just engulf my self in the musical bliss that is The Children Of The Night!
