Must Missa
The Target Of Hate

Well, well, well having reviewed my first Estonian band last time (Human Ground) I get another to review this time around, and on the same label too…. cool. Somebody somewhere has been worshiping at the alter of German thrash as this release sounds very similar to the recent releases of those -‘GODZ OF THRASH’-Destruction, and that’s no bad thing. Formed in 1996 this is their third full-length release (though on looking back a number of the song titles (& presumably therefore songs) have been reused on this release) but their first for Nailboard. I have to say (as a fan of Germanic thrash) this is a quality release, excellently simple riffs that gets your head bangin’ with pleasure after a very short listen. This should appeal to fans of thrash everywhere as it’s retro without sounding dated and has enough elements of black-thrash to keep it fresh without making it too modern and the album is (as all thrash releases should be) nice and short (8 tracks – 31 minutes) which ensures it doesn’t get repetitive (like this review). Could Estonia become a hotbed of metal talent for the future? I for one hope so and this lot could be one of the founders of the movement. This should be an essential purchase for fans of thrash and well worth a listen for any discerning Metalhead out there.
