MABON - "EYE FOR AN EYE" - 2006 - QUAM LIBET RECORDS
Mabon's penchant for old-school Thrash is palpable - the songwriting style, the production and indeed the band's attitude all point towards Destruction, Testament, Tankard, Overkill, Metallica, et al. The 4 songs comprising this EP are melodic and catchy but still quite technical with Badi's Thrash vocals sometimes verging on Death Metal. Mabon's 2 guitarists, Monika and Andreas, seem to create a good balance between heaviness and melody, riffage and solos. Particular mention is here due to some amazing shred axework. Not only aren't there any weak songs in "Eye For An Eye" but if Thrash is your cup of tea, you risk finding yourself begging for more.
Mabon might lack in originality but with such excellent musicians, a first class production and such tight-sounding songs, I hesitate to complain!
My Rating: 8/10
