Too Hot to Burn

Rated 3.38/5 (67.5%) (8 Votes)

Do you like your Thrash old school, fast and furious and with blackened vocals? How about if those blackened vocals are of the female persuasion? Sounds good to me. On Too Hot to Burn, Germany's Deathfist have brought those elements together in an evil stew that bubbles out of your speakers like a witch's brew from some filthy old cauldron.

The Thrash is more European than US in sound and when band plays fast, which is most of the time, they stick with two speeds; faster than is humanly possible and slightly faster than the first speed. They occasionally ramp it up into blast beat territory, but never for very long, and are also not afraid to slow down the tempo to enhance the feeling of dread. Vocalist Corinna Becker has a great raspy croak that is understandable, with a bit of effort. The rest of the band members are competent musicians, but don't really bother with anything particularly flashy on Too Hot to Burn. They seem satisfied to let the music do the talking.

Truth be told, there aren't any real standout tracks on Too Hot to Burn. All are good, but very similar to one another. Deathfist aren't doing anything new, but since they don't seem to be attempting to recreate the Thrash wheel anyway, that's fine. Solid, if a bit generic, blackened Thrash from Deathfist. Your air guitar/drum arms WILL be tired after Too Hot to Burn.
