The third full-length album by Australian Thrash Metal band.Speed, anger and aggression seem to be the watchwords for Melbourne Thrashers In Malice’s Wake. The third full length offering from the Aussie four-piece continues in their vein of turbo-charged Thrash Metal.“Light Upon the Wicked” is full of incredibly high speed riffs, and heavy breaks, all set behind guttural vocals which aren’t quite sung, but not quite shouted… There are more melodic sections, which appear from time to time; but don’t expect them to come with any slowing down of the pace. From the moment instrumental intro “Onward Human Suffering” kicks off, these guys are at full pace- grabbing the listener by the throat and not letting go.Guitar solos are brief and fast-paced with no real space for extended technical flourishes but here that doesn’t seem to be a problem, as extended sections would detract from the pace. If you want a well-written, incredibly tight, high-speed aural assault full of anger to blow out your speakers with, In Malice’s Wake have produced one of the best Underground Thrash Metal albums for a while. The intensity of the pace and the energy mixed with their occasional melodic sensibility suggest that it’s only a matter of time before these guys smash their way out of Australia and start making waves elsewhere as well!Punishment 18 Records, 2015 (P18R 103).
