WHIPLASH - UNBORN AGAIN - PULVERISED  
Whiplash is obviously nowhere near the only '80s band who was 'unborn' but perhaps they would also claim they never really left. Musically Swallow The Slaughter starts off giving the impression that this won’t be a dated release but the vocals of Tony Portaro and the accompanying screamed chorus pull the song back 20 years or so. Shades of Megadeth here. Snuff is next and is still thrashy but never really fully so. Firewater starts off with native/aboriginal chanting, is almost bluesy at times and is not shy borrowing a Black Sabbath riff or two. Float Face Down is slow to start but suddenly picks up to offer some of the fastest riffs on Unborn Again. It is typical of the aforementioned era, in a good way. Fight Or Flight is somewhat on the heavy side with a good pace. Pitbulls In The Playground does a good job carrying the tempo of the song before it and is as '80s as any another song here. It does take a shot at the Overkill side of things towards the middle. Parade Of Two Legs is a decent and non-acoustic instrumental with solos a la Dave Mustaine. Hook In Mouth features acoustic segments, is slower, heavier and rooted in the '70s version of rock. A cover of Montrose’s I’ve Got The Fire is next and leads the way to the closing song, Feeding Frenzy. This last song is mostly faster with an Iron Maiden inspired riff or two and ends this rebirth on somewhat of a high. - Anna Tergel
