"Thrash 'n' Roll" (Beer City; 2004)

Reviewed by Snidermann

Hard, heavy, loud and furious are just a few words to describe Hatework's "Thrash 'n' Roll." The music explodes from the very start and never really lets up until the final chord fades away. 

A solid thrash metal performance that utilizes thunderous guitar, raging bass, pounding drums and roaring vocals to produce a totally astounding CD. Still, as good as this band is, sometimes the one dimensional vocals take a little getting used to. It's worth hanging in there for. The title says it all - "Thrash 'n' Roll" - and, if you like your metal, fresh, hard and flat-out in-your-face, Hatework is right up your alley. It's old school thrash metal with a fresh attitude. The band has released several previous CDs and, if they're as good as "Thrash 'n' Roll," then they cook! This is one talented band that must just rock the fucking house live. 

Hatework: Lo - drums; Marco - guitar, Max - bass and vocals.

Rating Guide:

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.
