"The Voice of Hatred" (Locomotive; 2005)
Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton
Contradiction's "The Voice of Hatred" will appeal to listeners who are looking for something a little bit new that still manages to carry an old school vibe to it.
With its driving pace, its thrash background and its aggressive yet not too over-the-top vocals, "The Voice of Hatred" delivers a powerful listening experience with the speedy crunch of legendary thrash bands (Sacred Reich comes most immediately to mind) while freshening up their sound a bit with vocals that are a little more modern. It's a mix that works well throughout most of the CD, although eventually one track starts sounding an awful lot like another.
The similarity of tracks is a good thing here, however, especially if you've been hunting for a band that puts its influences to good use while stepping into the present at the same time.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
