Sarcasm - Igra Narave/Crematory (On-Parole) 2002
Igra Narave (2002)
A reader of my site suggested this CD to me knowing that I am a big thrash fan and always on the lookout for obscure thrash. He was even so kind as to trade me for a copy. Well, on first listen, I was very disappointed. The "Igra Narave" tracks just aren't very good and really aren't even thrash. The songs plod along at a mid-pace and the vocals are very mundane as well. However, once past those tracks, "Crematory" from 1989 is actually quite good. Rememeber the days when you would discover a band on those cool Metal Massacre and U.S. Metal compilations? That is exactly what I felt like after my initial disappointment with tracks 1-7. "Crematory" is old school speed metal/thrash with interesting vocals and losts of cool guitar pyrotechnics as well. It's a shame that these songs weren't put first on the CD, but I guess that is what the skip button is for.
For those who only speak English, here is the translation of the Slovian titles; "Igra Narave" means Game of Nature, 1.Slovenski genocid (Slovenian Genocide), 2.Dej mi/Sarcasma (Give Me/Sarcasm), 5. "Pričakovanje" (Expectation) & 7. Zena (Wife).
