Here In Hell
1/18/2006 - Review by: Eric Compton
Skullshifter - Here In Hell - 2005 - Self Released
The EP is handled by famed producer Simon Efemey, who also handled Napalm Death, Deceased, and Paradise Lost among others. Skullshifter come out of the box as a four piece, storming the gates with a fairly average opener "Punishment" and it's downtuned, choppy riffs and aggressive vocals. This opener captures the old school sounds of thrash, most evident mid-era Overkill or even Exodus. Cut two is a bit more different, an entertaining romp that sounds a bit like German power pioneers Rage, with some gang vocals thrown in to make it a bit more American. The last entry is "Here In Hell", a vicious staple that has some strange distorted guitar riffs before moving into a more stop-and-go thrash pace.
Bottom Line - Fairly decent EP romp that offers a good thrashing for those looking for a slightly more heavier sound that doesn't growl or scream.
