Black Spiral - _Defeat_
(Broken Image, 1998)
by: Adrian Bromley (6 out of 10)
First off, the sound of this nine-song CD is pretty bad, thus making it hard to enjoy this band's music to the fullest. I still carried on, numerous listens I did indulge in, and after that I actually became quite interested in some of the work here. It sounds better after a few spins, my friends. Anyway, through muffled production and some less-than-perfect knob twirling, this three-piece manage to salvage some moments while they play some really crusty thrash/death metal that is a throwback to '80s thrash metal gurus Testament and Sacred Reich. Overall, the guitar work is pretty good and the vocals and drumming sound about average. Not a lot going for them in the long run to break away from other metal bands in terms of originality, but a good record to bang head to every once in a while.
