Guest review by

Whoever said kids these days didn't appreciate the classics? Well, they certainly can't say that after hearing the debut of this very young - yet very talented band called Mantic Ritual (though this particular album was released under their previous name; Meltdown).

The first wonderful aspect you'll realize about this album is the stripped-down, no frills or gimmicks approach to the song writing. Everything down to the production seemed to be well thought-out giving it a very genuine 80's style thrash sound, easily comparable to Metallica's "Kill 'Em All". So what about the sound itself? Well, the guitar work is a nice mix of early Slayer and Metallica, with a slightly higher skill level. Vocals sound like a more out-of-control young James Hetfield. All this topped off with fairly thin (though well mixed) production.

  This is one of the best thrash metal band I have listened too and it also has some of the best machine gun riffs
