Division Speed - Demo 2009
Review by Joe Towse
Genre/s: Black/Thrash, Thrash Metal, Speed Metal
For Fans Of: Sodom, Nifelheim, Nekromantheon
The German metal underground is alive and well. Although this demo is now 6 years old, it's a fine example of that. 5 tracks of raging black/thrash with nary a moment's rest, and the kind of simple yet devastatingly effective vocal hooks which serve all forms of fast, aggressive music so well. For anyone familiar with the current scene in Germany, their "members of" list is an impressive CV, and this is reflected in the quality of the music. As with most of my posts, there's not much which is original here, but what is here is excellently made and performed. Highlights include 'Truppensturm' and 'Sturmbataillon'.
