For the Love of Suffering - _Not Affected by Pain_
(Independent, 1997)
by: Adrian Bromley (9 out of 10)
Man oh man! I think this is probably one of the few independent bands I have really been into in a long while. This band rules. Fans of old school metal (old Sepultura, Sacred Reich and Annihilator) take note. The riffs, the vocals, the attitude. Everything rules on this CD and what good hard work went into this. With some really good production work, FtLoS manage to take their speed/thrash metal into a higher realm of true grit and bone-crushing speed. Slick riffs and growling vocals sneer at us with such force that all we can do is stand back and take the blows as they come. Nothing prepared me for this and I think that is why I am so into it. Old school metal with a modern kick. Just what the doctor ordered, eh? While some of the material (music and lyrics) may seem dated -- this just being a small percentage of the music found on the record -- everything seems to fall in place here. Not once are we left hanging with the band's sound. Crank up the momentum with "In the Face", the title track or "The Itching and the Burning". And if this band doesn't radiate metal, I don't know who does. Powerful and hard-hitting -- this is what I like. Metal fans converge on this and feel the aura of metal it radiates. Good indie metal, but, most importantly, it's metal.
