ADX - Weird Visions
Yeah baby yeah, I could eat this stuff up day after day. I have to honest with you all, I'm a sucker for 80's Speed Metal and ADX more then satisfies all my cravings. ADX was a band that should be compared to EXODUS, actually there is no difference between those guys and ADX. "Weird Visions" could be considered the long lost EXODUS-album. These French purveyors of speed released seven albums during their twelve-year career and never got the recognition they deserved. This is the only album they released on a major label. If you are old enough to remember when METALLICA was a Metal-band, then you have to read on about this long lost masterpiece.

"Weird Visions" has a crystal clear production-job that is great even by today's standards. ADX have a solid forward thinking record doing what only a few bands and themselves could do best. The album features eleven tracks, all of the ten originals are pure in your face Metal-anthems, no whimpy ballads, no pansy progressive tracks, just ten songs of the youth of the world gone wild. The last song "Kill The King"is a DIO-classic that has been covered by just about every band in Metal. Lead-throat "Phil" is a dead ringer for Steve Souza, he has the same draino strained set of pipes and knows how to use them.

The 80's Thrash Metal-sound is a long lost art that no new band could even come close to accomplishing today. After hearing this CD for the hundredth time I have to stand back and applaud this slice of my Metal-days of old. Far and away France's greatest Metal-import is unfortunately destined to rule the used CD-bins for all eternity.
