12082014 - At War "Ordered to Kill"

Classic thrash/speed metal from 1986! This trio hails from Virginia (I use the present tense, as they are back after about two decades on hiatus), but their sound owes more to Brit bands like Venom and Motörhead or even Euro bands such as Sodom and Celtic Frost. It's fairly straight forward stuff, almost bordering on monotonous, but that's not meant in a negative sense, as this gives it an added punk attitude. I can see how world domination would elude this band in a time where those of their peers who gained a broader audience had an ever so slightly more crowd pleasing appeal, but today this sounds rough and tough as rusty nails! Through your eardrums!! Eight times!!!
