Slaughter to Survive

Rated 3.5/5 (70%) (6 Votes)

Nothing can beat the true, vintage, 80s Speed and Thrash Metal sound, right? Formed in 1993, German thrashers Fatal Embrace know what it takes to kick some butts hard by their sort of "take-no-prisoners" but also "heard-and-seen-it-all-before" Thrash Metal.

Slaughter to Survive is Fatal Embrace's fifth studio album, and while it perhaps does not completely slaughter content-wise, it can still be considered a well-earned survivor amongst today's other Thrash Metal releases. These fellows' brutal Thrash Metal has stayed true to the 80s Thrash Metal roots and Slaughter to Survive represents very well this more extreme and rawer side of the genre, i.e. sounding enough German made, just offering a "no-bullshit-no-gimmicks", fast-paced type of Thrash Metal. There's nothing in Fatal Embrace's crispy and frenzied sound that I personally would like to change, just no matter if Fatal Embrace does not bring anything new or groundbreaking on the already known Thrash table that was built up some 25+ years ago by a countless number of classic albums. They simply do what they can do best, and that's to thrash straight from their hearts and souls.

Slaughter to Survive is lots of fun to listen to, working like an entertaining, worn out cartoon with a fair dose of explicit graphics and lyrics to spice it up just a little bit more.
