Welcome back to 1986-87 when thrash metal was still all about speed and aggression and the idea of grooves or breakdowns had yet to infiltrate the genre. Chile's Critical Defiance beat the piss out of their instruments throughout their debut, Misconception. The guitars sound sharp and crushing, the vocals are an angry, proto-death growl and the drums are mercilessly beaten to a pulp. The songs aren't all that original but it matters little when you factor in the band's exuberance and dedication to getting the sound right as well as writing good songs. This is an album sure to please anyone that holds Reign in Blood, The Legacy and Bonded by Blood in high esteem. Excuse me while I start a mosh pit in my living room.
