Album Review: Black Fast – Spectre of Ruin (eOne)

There isn’t a single clean passage, moody interlude, orchestral intro, or shoegazing break on Black Fast’s unapologetically destructive third album, Spectre of Ruin. From start to finish, thrash metal fury is the business of Black Fast… and business is very good. The album will be out on July 13th 2018 via eOne.

Black Fast 2

Unapologetic, Black Fast bring the metal hard and fast. A 9-track album that is filled with savage fury as the riffs come at you thickly. It’s chaotic but not without direction and it certainly doesn’t lack purpose. Spectre of Ruin is a thrilling modern thrash album with one foot firmly planted in the sound of the yester-year.

We’re talking high-tempo riffing, righteous fury in the drumming, greasy bass, a red hot poker to the eye with the vocals and solos so powerful you’ll need to hold onto something just to steady yourself.

There’s no need for anything more then what Black Fast are offering here seeing as they do it so well. Unbridled Fury has never sounded so good & if the likes of Silhouette Usurper, Phantom I Am, Famine Angel and Husk don’t get your metal juices flowing then you’re probably already dead.
