Insect Politics

Rated 4/5 (80%) (3 Votes)

Like black/thrash and death/thrash, "plain thrash" has been a busy genre in the past few years. Deathblow have been around for over 10 years, but they're a new one for me and they're pretty cool. If you're into what I call "party thrash", basically old-school crossover and the likes that sound like they're having fun doing this rather than dark and evil, then Insect Politics might just be up your alley. It's fast and kind of lightweight-ish as far as thrash is concerned, with more emphasis on melody than their contemporaries while still sounding thrashy enough, with some sharp guitar work to keep things real. This is one of those albums touching serious subjects, all very actual, but delivering them with the aforementioned party vibe—hey, why not have fun while freaking out about all the crap going on in the world. ;) Insect Politics doesn't break any new grounds, but it's well-executed, solid melodic thrash with no fillers, which makes it good value. Get those heads ready to bang.
