Staff review by
Baz Anderson
American thrashers Death Angel return once more with their brand of thrash metal with attitude. "Killing Season" is the band's second album back in business and once again these ultra violent Americans deliver the goods with a punch. Death Angel have not seemed to follow trends of what is popular at the time, they just lay down good old traditional thrash metal the way the thrash scene seems starved and dry of in the modern today. By no means could you accuse Death Angel of being stuck in the past, as "Killing Season" is a modern sounding album that breathes freshness and life but has its core rooted in the school of thrash metal where there is no obligation to fill every verse and chorus with frantic double bass, and more emphasis is placed upon diversity and staying interesting while still being music to bang your head along and punch the air to as "Carnival Justice" and "Buried Alive" are just two shining examples of how this is achieved.
