"Parasite of Society" (Candlelight; 2008)
Reviewed by Mike SOS
Headhunter, the side project of Destruction's figurehead Schmier, returns after a 14-year absence with "Parasite of Society." This 11-track album alternates between power metal, thrash metal, and even toys with the mainstream with a cover of Skid Row's “18 & Life,” giving fans of vintage metal a kick in the ass.
“Remission” features an ethereal effect slightly reminiscent of Alice in Chains, “Doomsday for the Prayer” conjures up some provocative powerhouse riffs and “Payback Time” provides a raw reprieve of balls-to-the-wall metal.
In short, there's little surprise to be found here, but this disc acts as a proper aid to soothe the classic metal craving.
Headhunter: Marcel "Schmier" Schirmer - Vocals, Bass; Uwe "Schmuddel" Hoffmann - Guitar; Jorg Michael - Drums.

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.
