STORMSTRIKE: Make Total Destroy: CD

Had to take the disc out and make sure I put the right one into the player ‘cause, based on the cover and band name, I was expecting some sorta Scandinavian-inspired crusty/anarchy stuff. What’s coming outta the speakers, however, sounds more like late-‘70s Flesh Eaters outtakes, though the singer here sounds a tad more reserved than Chris D. did during that band’s heyday. With its “grind the pick into oblivion” guitar attack and occasional bluesy swagger, this sounds like it comes outta left field, which is never ever a bad thing.
