Finland spits out a top 10 number! This time the band is known
as THE SCOURGER who feeds Helsinki and the country around
with releases at regular intervals that attack right at the top
of the charts. Their Hatehead single boarded directly on
number # 1, Maximum Intensity entered “only”
on # 3 but this one crowded Slayer’s single actual then
out. Cyclone Empire didn’t want to miss this chance and
they signed a worldwide deal with THE SCOURGER in 2006
to release Dark Invitation To Armageddon after their
debut Blind Date With Violence. I disbelieve that
this output attacks the German charts in the Finnish way, however
this is a fine piece of Thrash Metal that is placed right in your
face. Embedded in a cover created by Motörhead cult designer
Joe Petagno the Finnish present themselves in ten tracks after
the Intro best professional and diversified in song writing without
being a copy of the scene heroes Exodus, Kreator, Slayer or Testament.
If at all I sense out a Thrash Metal version of Judas Priest gleams.
Even if THE SCOURGER states that they serve the old school
Thrash Metal fraction, this could be approved by me conditional.
From the hymn-like Last Nail To The Coffin over slower
neck breakers like To Tame A Life up to modern impulsive
killer No Redemption or Never Bury The Hatchet Dark
Invitation To Armageddon covers a wide band broad of catchy
and ambitious Thrash Metal. An absolutely nice piece of work,
entertaining and well produced. Two bonus tracks are given on
the top, among them the live version of their number killer Hatehead.
Therewith this record is over nearly one hour of Thrash and this
has to be adequate dignified.
