I hope you guys had liked the Exodus month, now we will continue with random reviews here, well, and in the beginning of the Halloween month, I will talk about the Mad Butcher ep, Released in 1987 by the german thrash metal gods Destruction.

Really nice cover!

Through the Blackstreets of the town his steps are clanging, now he’s wanton, oh he’s panting in his hand a blade of solid steel, now it’s the time you got to feel! YES!  The first track is simply called Mad Butcher, one of the favorite songs of every Destruction fan! Killer riffs, and the vocals of Schmier are very striking. The drummer, Olly Kaiser will make you bang your head here also, this song is surely a thrash metal gem that still be playing live til nowadays, and the end is pretty funny, they start to play nothing more nothing less than the Pink Panther theme, hahahaha! Very funny. The second track is The Damned, a cover of the punk rock band The Plasmatics, the song begins a little bit captivating, with a serene vocal, it have nice riffs, and a guitar killer solos, a excellent cover, one of the highlights of the EP. When the acoustic guitars begins beware, the hate will spread! Reject Emotions is one of the best thrash metal songs of ever, it have a acid lyrics, nice guitar work as always, with excellent guitar solos, exciting drums, and a catchy chorus,

“Reject Emotions, satisfiy your feelings… victim of lust, trapped in lunatic possession, reject emotions, too horny to be alone, reject emotions…”

The last song is The Last Judgement a killer instrumental with acoustic guitar riffs and very fast guitar solos, something clearly inspired in Yngwie Malmsteen, this song is really HARDCORE.

Closing Comments
