Review

Eine nette kleine EP die man eher in der HC/Punk Abteilung antrifft, während die Musiker aber extrem langhaarig und lederjackig auf dem Bandpic dreinschauen. Für mich verarbeiten die Jungs aus New Jersey ganz klare Thrasheinflüsse die mal straighter thrashend ("Disability") oder mal eher moshend an Anthrax erinnernd ("Slaughtered Grace") den Hörer für sich zu vereinnahmen versuchen. Sänger Sal Bee röhrt auch relativ rotzig in sein Mikro was die EP bevorteilt. Zu hören gibt es ebenso einige wirklich annehmliche Gitarrensoli. Leider sind beide Tracks recht kurz und man hätte deutlich mehr Material im Stile von "Disability" erwartet. Ansonsten eine typische Underground Thrash EP deren Besitz sicherlich niemandem schaden wird.

Mainly seen in HC/Punk guides but in my eyes Slaughtered Grace are a Thrash band with a few HC influences like the most US underground Thrash bands had too. The EP of these New Jersey based longhaired Crossover fanatics contains just 2 shorter trax who both remind me often to Anthrax, while "Slaughtered Grace" shows more the mosh side of the band, a typical midtempo Anthrax clone. The B-side makes this single alot more interesting for me since they raised the tempo and "Disability" turned into a straight classic Thrasher. Vocalist Sal Bee is roaring like a typical HC shouter, raw and dirty, while both guitarists don't really hide their talents when it comes to the solo parts, another plus point so to say. Therefore for underground Thrash fans it's a nice buy, especially since the price of the EP is still pretty human.
