1992's Epidemic of Violence is Demolition Hammer's second full-length album (of three as of this writing) and the title of track six, "Orgy of Destruction" sums up the album well. Speed, speed and more speed are what Demolition Hammer were pitching with angry, shouted vocals that hover around death metal without actually going over the line. Their uncompromisingly ferocious music and enraged singing reminds me of Teutonic thrash bands like Kreator and Destruction. None of the songs jumped out but there wasn't a single one I would skip. The biggest problem I had with Epidemic of Violence was the lack of bottom end in the mix, which robbed the album of some of its power. Still, the riffs crush and that's all you need to know.
