NUCLEAR WARFARE are from Southern Germany and they present 80’s Thrash Metal to bait the masses with it. Influences from DESTRUCTION, SODOM, SEPULTURA…can be heard everywhere, yet the combo tries to craft its own style. They master changes between fast blasting and slower mid-parts quite well, but myriads of other bands do so as well…
But with NUCLEAR WARFARE a bit of melody is added that must not be underestimated. If they keep on working on it in the future, the outfit might really make it. For now it’s only enough for a respectable success. Especially the guitarists have to improve their skills a lot, as especially the more melodious parts, such as on “Terror Squad”, still sound pretty awkward. In terms of variation they can quite impress, in the title song they even have a breaker in store. The production is alright, personally I am missing the bass a bit.
Live, in the state of losing control, the music should really rock out. Those who are into the early works by the above-mentioned bands or by less well-known tormentors such as DARKNESS, NECRONOMICON or BAPHOMET should confidently penetrate NUCLEAR WARFARE.
