Sceptic - Pathetic Being
Roaaar! Full speed ahead! Searing riffs, fast drumming and vocals that somehow remind me of Mille (KREATOR) at "Endless Pain". This is Thrash Metal par excellence!

The break-ridden riff-volley are complex, but still drill themselves into your ears and are absolutely song-supportive. The axe-sound is sharp like a razor-blade and that's just like it should be! In contrast the solos are quite melodic and the hectic drumming just fits the inferno like a glove, brilliant! The band also doesn't shrink back from some acoustic breaks, which adds especially with the instrumental "Particles Of Time". Here SCEPTIC show their dreamy, calm side! But the pure hammer is flying everywhere else!

That SCEPTIC are from Poland has been a big surprise for me! So who doesn't want to listen to AT THE GATES-clones all the time should check out this album. Folks who can imagine a dirty bastard from KREATOR, SADUS or ATHEIST ("Piece Of Time"), this one's for you!
