Hell Machine – Relentless Aggression (Album Review)

Hell Machine - Relentless Aggression

As Dave Hellrazor declares ‘’Everyone Shall Suffer’’ on the crushing “Hammer of Hate “, Hell Machine hailing from the isolation of Alice springs unleash their second offering to the Metal gods, full of fury lust, and metal!

Relentless Aggression has the sort of stomping sections that command you to move your head with their brand of Blackened thrash metal. And this is true thrash metal with strong elements of Kreator, Sodom, and Destruction along with being quite groovy at times aka “Burn in Hell” throw-in touches of Hell Hammer and the first wave of Black metal and you’ve got a great record!

Maybe it’s the heat, maybe the isolation and Aggression, tracks like “Possession” roar with the purity of real metal without any fancy ‘’post’’ tags or “experimentation”. “Gates of Hell” takes you right to its doorstep, its catchy, its insanely fast, filled with hatred and destruction capturing the spirit of the ’80s and takes it further. Drummer Mal Machine has got some massive chops and adds some real fury to the tunes.

“Lowlife” is more head-stomping glory whilst ‘’She Demon” gallops at pace. No Need for flashy solos or prolonged intros Relentless Aggression is real metal in all its fast thrashy blackened glory, that roars rips, and shreds.
