Review

Another candidate for the trophy of Germany's rarest Thrash vinyl is the first private effort "Catastrophical Expectations" of the later pretty well known VOMITORY who were able to throw some more albums on the market. It's said that just 500 pieces were made and according to the circumstances that you almost never see this mini album offered it might be even true. Seems like that most bands that didn't came from the Ruhrpott area had acceptable vocalists, at least in case of VOMITORY. A raw brawler-like voice that fits perfectly to their speed driven Thrash Metal style that in places is just archtypical teutonic Speed Metal par excellence just like we want it! When also "Catastrophical Expectations" isn't any musicial revelation and there are for sure better albums on the market, for a private pressing it's more than solid especially with these killer guitar solos! But it's still no reason to raise your enthusiasm coz you need more than luck to find and especially pay a copy nowaydays. Collectors piece...sad but true.
