Origin - Denmark
Style - Thrash Metal

" From the 54 second intro track, through the final lulling riff of the closer, 'By Inheritance' is one of most successfully distinct Thrash records of its time. Thick middle-eastern overtones, melody, technicality, unique vocals... its all here "

" Its the strikingly distinct vocals of frontman Flemming Rönsdorf that get you right away ( I always thought he was brilliant)some did not...Unique they were.
Razor-sharp production, fantastic songwriting and a nigh-limitless supply of shit-hot riffs to engage and entertain. Personal highlights include 'Khomanic', the title track, and 'Back In The Trash'...but as a whole the album really doesn't have a weak moment "

" Shred, thrash, destroy, repeat. Simple as that. If you're fond of the technical melody of bands such as Annihilator, and/or unique Thrash vocals (think Overkill's Bobby 'Blitz' Ellsworth, but even further away from the norm), or even just have an open mind to something different, do yourself a favor and track this down !................Tragically overlooked classic.

Deadly Relics!.........Here !
