Interstellar Experience

Rated 2.81/5 (56.25%) (32 Votes)

You know, there's a reason the Thrash scene died at the end of the 80's, and a big part of that reason was lame-ass bands like this one cluttering up the landscape with their crappy albums. Overpopulation is bad enough, but overpopulation by clone bands and wannabes is even worse. I was unfortunate enough to be subjected to this band's horrible 'comeback' album "The Club" which they squeezed out earlier this year. Now I have to listen to their old stuff, and I am here to tell you it isn't much better, and nowhere near 'good'.

This album sounds like approximately 50,000 thrash albums released between 1986 and 1990. The recording is horrible, so that you have to turn your volume up to 10 just to be able to hear it. The riffs are average and unmemorable, the playing is sloppy, the vocals are that tired, yappy 'thrash-style' yell we all got tired of twenty years ago after about five minutes of 'Zetro' Souza. In other words, this album has nothing to recommend it except that it sucks about 20% less than their new stuff. So the best I can say for "Interstellar Experience" is that it is only bad, rather than terrible.
