These are heady days for thrash metallic, not least as a result of we appear to be getting into a brand new Chilly Struggle. EXTINCTION A.D. launched an absolute face-ripper of an EP final yr, and since world occasions have taken yet one more flip for the more serious, a full-length from these militant destroyers would appear to be precisely what everybody wants. Laudably furious from begin to end, “Tradition of Violence” lives as much as its title.
Perhaps it is a signal of the instances, however EXTINCTION A.D. have the identical sledgehammer depth that has propelled the likes of POWER TRIP and ENFORCED to metallic prominence. All the pieces from the opening title monitor, replete with brilliantly odd breakdown, to “Nationwide Catastrophe”‘s visceral climax, is delivered with most brute pressure, and a stellar raw-meets-cutting-edge manufacturing solely serves to strengthen this band’s collective energy.
The most effective songs right here supply audacious hybrids of old- and new-school brutality, with impressed touches, just like the skewed SLAYER motif that erupts throughout “13”‘s raging beatdown, including to an all-encompassing vibe. The genuinely startling “Mastic” is EXTINCTION A.D. at their most feral and uncompromising, whereas “1992” is a dizzying blur of mutant crossover tropes and lobotomized gang vocals. Practically all of it’s hellishly catchy, not least the swaggering, spiky singalong of “Star Strangled Banner”, but additionally audibly rooted within the pomp and precision of conventional metallic. That genre-straddling aptitude is showcased most impressively on “Behind the Occasions”, a scintillating amalgam of TESTAMENT-style thrash, metallic hardcore punch and wild, virtuoso soloing, it is a beautifully crafted metallic music with hooks galore and choking ranges of low-end crunch. The remaining aren’t too far behind both, with the breakneck “Reward the Fraud” and nailed-on crowd-pleaser “Dominion” standing out as notably appropriate soundtracks for doing backflips off the furnishings. Even the hulking, mid-paced “Heads Will Roll” contributes to the carnage.
Above all, “Tradition of Violence” will get to the purpose and hammers it dwelling with heroic pressure.
Wrapped up in a nobly economical 38 minutes, it quantities to at least one lethally efficient wake-up name, in true thrash metallic custom.
