Divine Decay - Maximize The Misery
Though my blood was always containing at least two grams of alcohol per litre all the time during the Wacken festival this summer, I will remember all my life of that huge gig TESTAMENT did, and that I had also thought to myself that it was a shame we couldn't find anymore decent 80's Thrash Metal albums just like they did in the US.

But why am I saying all that? Well, simply because "Maximize The Misery", the second album of DIVINE DECAY, is having this level of quality, and will definitely fit in the middle of any fan of 80's Thrash Metal. Yeah, the guys from DIVINE DECAY are the proud sons of Chuck Billy's band, especially the singer Alec, and they have done with this album a real successor to "The Legacy". Ok, maybe it's also a bit copied on many bands from that ancient area, but who cares? It's fucken well done, and can only bring good old memories back to life… A small moment of pleasure and nostalgia! (Online October 11, 2003)
