Vintage Addiction

Rated 4.67/5 (93.33%) (18 Votes)

Spain's Dishammer play a raw, and dirty style of blackened thrash metal with some crust influence. Think along the lines of a Motorhead, Hellhammer and Discharge hybrid and you wouldn't be too far off the sound of Dishammer with their debut full-length Vintage Addiction. This band clearly couldn't give a damn about modern production values, and sound like they're still playing out in the basement of an 80's house party.

12 tracks at just under half an hour, this is a quick punch to the face brimming with wild energy, the recording sounds live and organic and the band sound like they're having the time of their lives. There is no pretension to be seen here, just good old thrashing fun. Loud and in your face, reeking of inebriation Vintage Addiction was something I was unsure I'd like – I'm not big on crust – but I can say Dishammer have found a new fan in me. With crazy bouts of hell-driven insanity such as "Werewolves on Wheels", "Smoke of Death" and the awesome title track, I feel like decimating a few cans of beer and smashing them over my head. Recommended.
