Review: Anihilated: IDeviant

I must plead ignorance to this band as I'd never heard them before and I've been a Rock/Metal fan since 1977.

They've been around since 1981 when they formed as a Punk band called Prospex, they changed their name in 1982 but disbanded in 1990

.

They re-formed in 2008 and have since released a very rare box set and 2 albums, this being the 2nd of the two, before that they had released 2 albums, 2 EPs, a split single and a couple of demos.

This is British Thrash at its best and I was hooked from the intro of Death to the Deviant even before the music kicked in, but when the music started I just thought "This is right up my street, get in!"

If you want a soundtrack to World War 3 then this is it, and I'll be running to the trenches with this blasting in my ears, it's heavy, it's brutal, it's fast, what more do you want?

It's not hard to hear the influences on here, lyrically and musically for the most part I'm hearing Discharge, but I also hear a big Euro Thrash presence in the shape of Destruction, Sodom & Kreator, hell you could even throw some Blessed Death in there for good measure.

The production was handled by Danny B & the band and they've done an immense job, nice and heavy and loud and clear.

I won't go into a track by track rundown for fear of repeating myself but what I will say is this album is as near to perfect as you can get, tracks like Lord of the Flies, I really can't praise this album enough, Si, Bod, Mark, Todd take a bow lads, you've done Thrash proud and I hope there are many more albums to come.

Don't take my word for it, check them out on YouTube! \m/
