Made For The Violent Age

Rated 3/5 (60%) (5 Votes)

From the description and to some extent, the cover art, I was expecting some rather brutal thrash to come out of the speakers, but in the grand scheme of things, this is rather tame. More of a heavy/thrash proposition, "Made For a Violent Age" includes a few clean thrash songs along with songs that lean more toward traditional heavy metal, and a couple of very quiet songs as well - "My Friend" for example is more of a ballad than anything else. The material is good overall although I found that there isn't much that stands out. There are the occasional nods to such thrash titans as Metallica (early), Megadeth, and even later Kreator in some passages that sounds like a hybrid of thrash and melodic death. It took me a while to get used to the singer. He's not bad but his voice doesn't always fit the music and the first few times I listened to the album I found this annoying. After a while you get used to it and it at least sounds decent. He does have a varied style, however, which for this album is quite essential since, even though nothing really stands out here, this is not one of those unidimensional albums that sounds the same through and through. You can hate one song and then love the next one and so on. At the end of the day, the one thing that stands out the most is the cover of "In A Gadda Da Vida" (Iron Butterfly) which is played with an interesting twist. Not essential thrash but there's some good stuff here.
