After listening to ADRENECHROME for the first time last night, I let it set in my head over night to get the full weight of what they were doing on this CD. Upon a second listening, noticed lots of things that I missed the first time. The first thing you notice are the classic thrash elements that the band brings to the table. There’s a definite old school thrash feel here. Listen further though and you will also hear plenty of doom and stoner metal elements throughtout as well.
ADRENECHROME are a highly skilled and technically proficient band musically. The songs rage with great breakdowns yet are also layered with lots of crunch and have some tasty, jazz influenced solos throughout. The only thing that strikes me as a weakness here is that the vocals do not always work in places. Not to to take anything from the vocalist, he more than carries the record overall.
Overall, this is a great set of tunes that will go a longways towards establishing ADRENECHROME as a name to remember in the future. I highly recommend picking up a copy of “Hideous Appetites” and giving your speakers the workout they so rightfully deserve.
