Chronical Diarrhoea - The Last Judgement / Salomo Says (Remastered + Bonus Tracks) (CD)
Release Date: 09/30/08
Double re-release of the band's albums, the debut album from 1988 ('Solomo Says...') and the follow-up from 1990 ('The Last Judgement'). Brutal crossover thrash.
In the late 80's the European metal scene was heavily influenced by such genres as thrash metal, punk rock and hardcore. Various bands begun to copy the American sound and forge it into new, fascinating forms. Eventually, the crossover genre was born, beginning a new era in metal. Germany's Chronical Diarrhoea was one of the groups that started the commotion in Europe, bringing ultra-fast and ultra-violent music with a specific punk & hardcore twist. 'The Last Judgement' is unquestionably their finest work, delivering all the best elements of the crossover genre and simply destroying everything in its way! In 1988 the band released their debut LP - 'Solomo Says...'. The album contained 22 songs which closed around 26 minutes. All tracks were equally fast and vicious, bringing nothing but sheer devastation and a bunch of hilarious lyrics to boost. The band had a couple of promotional gigs and after that immediately started to work on the follow-up. After two years they came up with the result...'The Last Judgement' was a big step forward in the group's musical evolution. 15 slightly longer tracks presented a lot more variety than on the previous album, joining together thrash and punk riffs, cool intros, groovy drum patterns and even acoustic parts. While 'Solomo Says...' might have been considered a joke, 'The Last Judgement' proved that Chronical Diarrhoea can be pretty serious about their music. Double re-issue in a new digipak edition, limited to numerated 2000 copies. Digitally remastered using 24-Bit process on golden disc.
