Sometimes it takes quite a lot of time for bands to get their debut albums released. For German melodic thrashers Crusher, it took 14 long years to get their debut album, titled Redemption, out (they were formed back in 2002).
Musically, Redemption sounds like pretty good, well-executed Thrash Metal that has a lot of emphasis put on certain melodies. None of the guitarists, however, manage to impress me too much due to their teeny-weeny monotonous approach to the songs. Also, vocalist Robin Geiss isn't any Russ Anderson or James Rivera vocally, but he does a "just okay" job, vocal wise, with his nicely sharp vocal techniques. "Song of a Pit", with its Slayer-esque approach, as well as "The Journey", which has a couple of somewhat effective powerful gang-shout parts and an amazingly addictive chorus part seem to cut the cake the most favorable way, at least for me. The production on this record leaves certainly much to be desired as well.
Crusher's debut makes you want to believe they can do better – in fact, a lot better. Time will tell what they might be capable of offering us in the future.
