It's a great Old School thing, which DESASTER offers! Although, they did this already with the two predecessors.
What has changed on Longplayer number three? Not much, apart from the new guy on the vocals. He has a more mangily voice than his predecessor, but he fits in the sound of the Thrashers from the Mosel! I think, their songs are also arranged more runnier - especially the riffs killing! But also the production is their best ever, nicely pressuring, but also very raw!
Deliciously Thrash hymns with a black touch, that's the thing of the band from Cochem, and it's in the tradition of the old heroes of SODOM, DESTRUCTION, SACRIFICE or RAZOR. There is no modern tone to hear, at least we have to deal with "Divine Blasphemies"! That's good, a nice test for you neckmuscles! Those songs will work great, when they will be played live! Especially their over the top hymn "Alliance To The Powerthrone" pleases me so much...
Conclusion: one can't better bring the old Thrash-times back to life than on this record. Who already bought the albums of FATAL EMBRACE, IMPENDING DOOM or RITUAL CARNAGE can't miss this milestone. These here are the kings! (Online February 7, 2003)
