DEVARIEM “Planet Earth:Ground Zero”

”Planet Earth: Ground Zero”
Looking at the cover art work to this album didn’t exactly get my juices flowing. There is nothing that really excites me when I look at the cover. But as always you shouldn’t judge an album by its cover. You never know what hides beneath. This German thrash lot has a lot to live up to if they want to even slightly match the pedigree they are up against, just in Germany alone. When I heard Destruction, Sodom and Kreator for the first time everything was new and untried. Nowadays everything has been done a thousand times already and it is hard to come up with anything even slightly original. That is why I’m not really looking for originality anymore. I’ll settle for an album that affects me. I had very low expectations on this album but it actually turned out to be a nice slab of mid-tempo thrash with an aggressive edge. There are touches of second wave Bay Area thrash in their sound. Something that appeals to me. Cool. Anders Ekdahl
