NUCLEAR ASSAULT - THIRD WORLD GENOCIDE - SPV
The trend of bands reforming for no reason, other than band members who were not particularly busy, was already long in the tooth five years ago. Past that obvious point Third World Genocide is a lousy hardcore-tinged thrash metal album. The reformed line-up of singer and guitarist John Connelly, bassist Danny Lilker, drummer Glenn Evans and new guy Eric Burke may have some serious lyrics in the title track, but have packed the rest of the album with lousy vocals that are out of tune, mundane riffs, an oi song called Whine And Cheese, a hillbilly song from Mississippi called Long Haired Asshole and wasted so many trees to do so. A couple of good riffs on Defiled Innocence or Fractured minds are hardly enough to justify anything other than this overtly negative review. A Nuclear Assault on what? - Ali "The Metallian"
