Plague of Violence

Rated 4.5/5 (90%) (4 Votes)

This is a Thrash band from New Zealand, putting out their independent debut album. Dissolution are very much about old school German Thrash, and there is a lot of early Sodom and Destruction in their sound. They have a lot of energy, and the production has a lot of dirt and grit in it for a cool underground vibe. I like this disc, but the songwriting is not as good as it could be, and a lot of these songs sound a lot alike. The effect is less an album than one long song, or many variations of the same one. A band that wants to mine this particular vein should have fistfuls of thrashtastic riffs, and while Dissolution are solid, they don't create anything really brilliant. Still, this is a fun disc for Thrash mavens, and if you like underground Thrash then this will hit the spot.
