Koen W. : This legendary thrash band from Los Angeles releases a live album with their sixth one. The thirteen songs were recorded on their February 3, 2018 show at ChiCali Lounge in Monterey Park, CA. As extra you get three bonuses. These are two new songs and a cover. The live songs include a nice look in the history of the band. Each album is represented, but it is mainly from the latest studio album 'Ad Morten Festinamus' that was chosen. No less than six songs. An intro isn’t here. After the greeting hey they kick off immediately with 'Gods Of Hate'. The sound is excellent and every instrumental and vocal part sound like you are listening to a studio album. Besides a live album, this can also be considered as a best off. Steven Gaines’ voice sounds really well and he really gets the crowd going. Besides the announcement of each song, he does not waste time selling nonsense on stage. So the band does what they can best. And that is playing solid thrash. The extras 'Everybody Dies' and 'Vicious Intent' show that the band has lost nothing on speed and aggression. They end with 'Matriach', a Montrose cover that goes more in the thrash and rock direction. Mandatory for fans and people who to get to know the band alike.
