DE/TEST: Language Of Violence CD German Neo Thrash Metal and Hardcore a la MACHINE HEAD. Check audio
DE/TEST come from Isernhagen, Germany and play an individual mixture of Neo Thrash Metal and Hardcore. They enhance it with melodic keyboards, which play an important role in their entire sound. The opener Silence Is Broken sounds like newer MACHINE HEAD, especially with the riffing, singing and aforementioned keyboards. Second song Part Of Me is my personal favourite on Language Of Violence offers everything you can expect from melodic Thrash Metal. Vocalist Jens Albert roars his soul out but on this song, he can also shine with his clean vocals. We Rise is a bit weaker but the last two songs This Time and It Hurts are much better with more accessibility as well as much heaviness. The sound of this self produced record is very good, only the keyboards could be a bit more in the background, even though they play an important role in their sound.
