D.e.v.o.l.u.t.i.o.n. by Destruction
Released: Aug 2008
Label: Afm Records
A fast blast out of the thrash past, from veteran Germans who give their sonics more space and dynamics than casual listeners might've remembered. There's also very propulsive drumming; screeching that manages not to sound strained, actual chorus hooks ("physical destruction! just kills!"); a bit of mechanical mulch; and a couple songs ("E.levator to Hell" and "V.icious Circle - The Seven Deadly Fins") that recall Killing Joke for some reason. It gets a bit wearying over the course of an album, though. And the album title, sadly, has nothing to do with Devo -- it's just an acronym.
