Necromanicide - Hate Regime (Pony Canyon) 1998
1. Hate Regime"
Thrash/death metal from, of all places, Malaysia. What is so strange about it is that this band has a Christian message, although not as in your face as some bands. If I am not mistaken, Malaysia is very hostile to Christians as it is a Muslum nation. What is also strange is that they are on a well known secular label. If I am not mistaken, Yngwie Malmsteen 's discs are released on Pony Canyon in some countries as well. In any case, the music is very technical thrash/death metal. At first, I was impressed, but after repeated listens, I lost interest as hooks are sacrificed for to many riff changes and technical prowess. Still, not a bad disc, but not a frequent player either.
