NUCLEAR – Murder Of Crows – Review english
NUCLEAR – Old School Thrash Metal
in a very brutal manner is played by the South Americans NUCLEAR (Facebook) from Chile. The band was founded under a different name in the mid 90’s, disbanded in 2001 and resurrected under NUCLEAR in 2003. In the course of its history the band has been on stage with many famous bands such as TESTAMENT, VOIVOD or DESTRUCTION. In 2017, they even took part in the „Rage Against Racism“ festival in Germany and heated up the audience. They were interviewed by ‚metal-heads.de‘ in 2019 (look here). On 2020-11-13 NUCLEAR will now release their new work „Murder Of Crows“ onto the world.
Not for tender minds
The album is free of any romance or harmony, because here hard reality is the inspiration for the lyrics and the sound. Here you are shaken up, your red blood cells sweep moshpitlike through your body and the pulse accelerates immediately to 180! And that in a raw and impetuous way, that it blows the wax out of your ears. Here you’ll find classic Thrash-Metal, which for example is based on the earlier SLAYER-albums and of course has parallels to for example EXODUS and KREATOR. It is an angry album with many important hard-hitting messages that deals with the difficult political situation in the country.
The cruel reality in Chile
The situation is very difficult and has become increasingly heated in recent years. Although Pinochet’s dictatorship ended in 1990, the country has not been able to find peace in 30 years. The rule of elites is one of the greatest abuses. Wealth and power are concentrated in a small part of the population, while half of the population lives in poverty. Politicians in particular are the target of criticism, who enrich themselves at the expense of the population. Oppression, corruption and violence characterise everyday life. The core issue now is the adoption of a new constitution. People demand fundamental reforms and the anchoring of basic rights such as health and education in the constitution for example. The state uses all possible force against demonstrators. Even the military was sent to the streets for the first time in 30 years. You have to watch the latest video of the song
that the current situation in the country is very impressive. The pictures are very harsh and frightening. But it is (unfortunately) real. The song itself is accordingly hard. At first it stomps forward brutally furious, only to unload itself completely with all its power in a speedy finale. The crazy and precisely played guitar solo cuts directly into your brain.
And this is exactly what you can expect on the rest of the album. The maxim is:
No restraint, just full throttle!
You can convince yourself of this directly with the second song „No Light After All“. This is the uncompromising unleashing of thrashy energy, simply pure frenzy.
Throughout the whole album the partly death-heavy sound goes on with a force and wildness that will fill you through and through with this energy. When you’re lying on the floor completely exhausted, the sound should give you a boost like three shots of adrenaline directly into your heart to get you back up and keep fighting. Got a taste for it? Then here is another video…
Result of NUCLEAR „Murder Of Crows“
NUCLEAR live up to their name and shine on their album „Murder Of Crows“ with an almost uncontrollable energy that will directly take possession of you and push you to the end. An angry honest album in a very difficult time with a message that cannot be ignored. This is raw unadulterated Thrash Metal straight to your face!
