Third Degree - Outstay - 2005 - Self Made God
Up until now I've never heard the band, and I find that really odd considering the amount of bombastic, ear shattering rampages on display here. Third Degree move quick and precise, really creating a thunderstorm of tight, machine like death metal. The big, crushing groove riffs and timing changes are all here and better than some of the early legends I mentioned before. Healthy cuts like "Pope Died Tonight" and "Let's Hail Satan" dish up some fast punches, highlighted by Wojtek Blaszkowski's fast footwork behind the skins, all tightly wrapped up in the fast picking of guitarists Pawlowski and Czech. Vocalist Tomasz Bardega works his way into the mix in much the same register as a Barney Greenway or Dave Ingram. Of course it wouldn't be grindcore without the sadistic humor and Third Degree has plenty of that, just see "Piggsy":
"He's got a chainsaw!!!
A fuckin' chainsaw!!
He's got a chainsaw!!!
And he's gonna tear my flesh apart"
Bottom Line - Missing the sounds of early Napalm Death and Bolt Thrower, turn to the Third Degree!
