Darkness - Death Squad (CD)
Release Date: 07/13/10
Neck snapping, frantic, under the radar, grade A German thrash metal.
Finally, the CD reissue of Darkness' debut, 'Death Squad'. Originally released in 1987, this album is a must for fans of Kreator, Destruction and Exumer. This excellent Battle Cry Records reissue adds 7 bonus tracks! The best thing about this album to me has always been the complex guitar solos, and the tight, rapid drumming. Lots of German high speed riffing here, that doesn't get boring! I bought this in around 1989 because I liked the cover art (sorta reminded me of the Slayer pic disc, plus members were baring MDC and DRI shirts on the back cover. The bands influence on me can be seen in a band I was in that named ourselves after the title of this album, DeathSquad. I love this one, always have.
