Review by JD on March 27, 2010.
Canadians, cold beers and in your face Thrash metal. Sounds like a recipe for one hell of a good time to me. That is what you get with Toronto based Ale-soaked thrashers Fatality and their debut album "Beers From The Grave".
Playing some good old school Thrash while really upping the level that it was being delivered a few notches. Fatality proves that the old styled metal is definitely not even close to being dead - but now is back out there and trying to rule the world once again. With pounding rhythms and slashing guitar lines, everything is delivered with such precision yet holds that massive brutality factor that the good bands seem to have.
The lyrics on the album may not be world changing, but just having fun - and that is what this band is all about here, pure fun while sticking to what they do best. I laughed with ever word, and loved every harsh and abrasive note they played as well... it was truly a blast from the past for me. Every song was just a hell of a lot of fun, but made me want to ‘spread their disease’ (cheap Anthrax joke there)... the band really has captured the essence of Thrash, and made it all of their own.
If your looking for some really good thrash band you can drink a truck load of beer with and forget about the cold weather outside... Get Canada’s newest drinking heros: Fatality. Motley Crue style fun meets total Thrash excellence. Anyone need a cold one?
