Get it Now

Rated 3.67/5 (73.33%) (3 Votes)

Get it Now is the second album from Germany's MP and is being reissued by Relics from the Crypt (sub-label of Dying Victims Productions) on the heels of the reissue of the band's debut, Bursting Out (The Beast Became Human). Similar in sound, with gravelly vocals, sharp riffing and that '80s vibe, Get it Now is less thrashy than its predecessor and more firmly in the traditional metal mold. It isn't quite as speedy, but I think it suits the band's style better. It is full of anthemic metal that is just shy of the catchiness of German contemporaries like Accept and Running Wild, but it does contain their best song, in my opinion, "Get it Now." This is a song I bet Wolf Hoffman wishes he wrote. It has a dark, menacing atmosphere that is enhanced by the crunchy riffs, slow chord changes and slightly haunting vocals lines. Once again, this reissue has been dressed up with some live bonus tracks and once again, the band sounds excellent on them, even if some are repeats of cuts you've already heard. As with Bursting Out, I don't think of Get it Now as a lost gem or cult classic but if you love '80s metal, it is surely worth your while. Try as they might, today's bands don't make music like this.
