Dimensions of Terror

Rated 4/5 (80%) (5 Votes)

Now that's what I'm talking about! I haven't been keeping up with my local (Ottawa) metal scene in recent years and Mangler are one of a couple of local bands that have popped on my radar in the past few months. This album may be short at just under 28 minutes, but it packs a lot of punch and there's no room for filler – just what the doctor ordered. The album starts loud, brutal and mighty and it doesn't stop until the last note. It's not particularly original musically speaking, but this is a band that takes straightforward death/thrash and does it right. Punishing drums, razor-sharp guitars and harsh vocals, with just enough melody to sound catchy while not watering down the brutality. This is the kind of album that leaves something with you once it's over and you can't wait to put it on again. I usually kick albums off my playlist once they're reviewed, but I get the feeling this one will still be finding its way in there for a while. Fuck. Yes.
