Dean Vincent Thrash rarely interests me nowadays. Early Kreator albums and the odd Sodom release are all my speakers are familiar with. Imagine my surprise when I stumbled across Dekapitator with their relentless thrash gallop, screeching vocals and blistering pace. Smiling as I type this. Favorite track: Earthscorcher.

Bay Area thrash metal warriors Dekapitator strike back with death strike #2, The Storm Before the Calm. A sharper, more traditional thrash metal attack that their early work, The Storm Before the Calm impacts with all the subtleties of the Armageddon itself. Nine nuclear metal offensives bursting with razor-sharp staccato riffing, nerve-severing vocals, and full on battery of classic metal are delivered w/ the neck-snapping fury of the masters of the genre. Dekapitator are the formidable new leaders of the thrash metal renaissance. Thrash til Death!
