Zombie Attack

Rated 4.5/5 (90%) (4 Votes)

I was a latecomer to the beer-oozing German thrashers and only recently picked up this debut. This is quite different from their last couple of albums, which were kind of lacklustre—basically a band that's having a hard time keeping its songwriting game up.

Musically and vocally, Zombie Attack is very much in the vein of mid-80s German thrash, more so than their later output where they went their own way. It's fast, raw thrash with visceral vocals that match this classic thrash approach like a glove. Unlike their country mates, Tankard's lyrical content is less on the evil side and more on the fun, goofy and party side while not taking anything away from the might of their music. Definitely a nice little gem of early German thrash and pretty much mandatory for fans of the genre.
