Staff review by
Doc Godin

In a world where thrash metal seems to be steadily leaning more and more to the harsher side of things (Warbringer, Toxic Holocaust, Skeletonwitch, etc) it's pretty nice to hear a more melodic step-back. Granted, this isn't an extremely vicious album, but who cares? It seems it's becoming just too easy to write steam-rolling thrash. Some times, it's just nice to hear thrash that can just...soar.

Guest review by

While thrash metal has always been a very enjoyable subgenre of metal, revivalist bands have been so boring over the past few years that the genre has had very few new things to offer. Count in Savage Messiah, because Plague Of Conscience fails to offer something original.

When it comes to a description of what the album sounds like, we can be very simple: imagine a combination of Testament and *insert other legendary thrash metal band* with a touch of power metal. Savage Messiah does what almost every thrash band does that has been formed in the last decade: they make music that reaches back to the old days of thrash, copying the style of a certain band or blending the sound of multiple bands. They specifically try to make thrash metal, instead of just writing the music that comes from their hearts, while not paying attention to what genre it will be categorised in.

  Just got finished listening to this album. Overall, I think its alright. It kind of has a power metaly, Holy Grail-ish feel to it.

Rating: 7 I can't believe they took the fucking "D.N.R." riff again. Again, the first song. Again, the title track. That's got to be a new record. Decent album, though.

Rating: 9 A very solid album,filled with crunching guitar riffs and some really well-tuned melody. Contender for one of the metal albums of 2012 at the moment.
