Hellish Crossfire  

A German band, taking their name from the classic album by Iron Angel -- there's really no doubt in anyone's mind as to what these guys play, is there? Yep, it's retro Germanic thrash through and through, evoking names like Sodom and Kreator and the hordes of countrymen that were bashing this stuff out twenty years ago. So, there's nothing remotely original here, nor anything modern (save, perhaps, a somewhat updated production), but that doesn't mean it's not worth one's time, especially given that retro thrash is all the rage in 2008. Like everyone else reliving the glory days of thrash, time will tell if Hellish Crossfire progress beyond rehashing the past, but Slaves Of The Burning Pentagram (how's that for a stereotypical thrash album title?) is highly entertaining and energetic, and a clear choice for those into classic German thrash.
