Holy Shit! Roast me a stork (for veggies also possible: corn cobs or tofu, for more brutal gourmets also a complete pig)! The "old gentlemen" of PARADOX are together again, strengthened by the Holzwarth-brothers (formerly with SIEGES EVEN) and the Power/Thrash that this Würzburg/Munich-combination fires out of my speakers really catches my attention, even though I normally don't exactly like Thrash.
After the intro, which you seem to HAVE to have nowadays, the title-track "Collision Course" sets a first exclamation mark, with finest Power/Thrash and a great riff that brings you under its spell immediately. That's what I call a good start indeed!
But also after this first highlight the quartet around Charly Steinhauer proves that Power/Thrash can be very varied, too. No matter, if in mid-paced regions ("Rearrange The Past"), fast power/thrashy ("Path Of Denial", "Shattered Illusions") or highly melodious, with all heaviness ("Saviour"), everything possess a class that makes you more than just listen up.
"Blamed For Nothing" even nearly reaches the top-class of the opener, Power/Thrash with tons of melody and even some acoustic guitars towards the end, great!
Oh, I nearly forgot to mention the bonus-track "Dynamite", which brings you the SCORPIONS in a heaviness you've never heard from them in their long career!
"Collision Course" is a more than classy come-back that will catapult PARADOX into the upper echelons of the German Metal from the stand!
