If you’re looking for something new but love your late 80’s and early 90s Metal, then you’re really going to enjoy this release. The first two tracks definitely pay tribute to the thrash and early death metal bands of the aforementioned but track 3 and 8 really seems to draw their influences from cannibal corpse. The rest of the records got a similar sound to the first 2 tracks with a few riffs here and there from the broader metal staples of the past 20 years.

The same quality this record offers to listeners who are looking for a group that pays homage to the greats of the late 80s and early 90s may not be well received by listeners who are searching for something on the frontier of the metal scene.

For me, it’s not the most inventive sounding record but if something isn’t broken then there’s no need to fix it.

If you like:  Pantera, Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, and a pinch of Cannibal corpse you’re going to love this record. Great sounding production. Great sounding Metal vocal. Big bold guitar sounds.

Haters be like:  If you’re looking for something on the frontier of the metal scene, you’re not going to hear it here.

It Gets 3 – Flaming, Horny, Mutant, Metal GoatMen
