Mortal Remains - _No Cash Flow_
(Tender Stone, 1997)
by: Adrian Bromley (6 out of 10)
Okay... this record starts off as a somewhat hardcore/metal record and as it progresses, it turns into a tight, blazing, metal-riffed thrash metal record. _NCF_ by New York's quartet, Mortal Remains, isn't all that bad, I liked a lot of what I heard, it's just that what it supplies us with is a typical dosage of thrash-styled music. I hear a lot of Slayer, Anthrax, and Metallica influence within their music on _NCF_, as well as hardcore/metal stylings a la Biohazard. I like what the band is doing in regards to going back to an old school style of playing and mixing with a 90s feel of hardcore/metal. I'll be honest, I was pleased when a band like Meliah Rage surfaced last year after a long hiatus with their self-titled album plugging hard and heavy at old school metal and I am glad that Mortal Remains isn't afraid to play music that may seem old or forgotten. It sounds good, they just need a bit more variety and creativity in some parts. Not bad.
