DAMIEN THORNE
DAMIEN THORNE
The Sign Of The Jackal
(Metal for Muthas / High Vaultage)
51:23min

A true classic of 80s US Heavy Metal! Originally produced by the band and David DeFeis (VIRGIN STEELE) in 1985, "The Sign..." develops loads of energy, even though (or maybe because) the sound is quite raw. Speed Metal killers like the title track or 'Fear Of The Dark' simply kick some serious ass while entering your brain in no time. Even after all these years I find a new fave track almost every time I put on this record. Some Death Metal fans might have problems with singer Justin's high screams (reminds me a little of Brian Thomas of Detroit's finest HALLOWEEN). However, Justin doesn't overexaggerate his abilities. "The Sign Of The Jackal" requires fanatic headbanging and I'm looking forward to the next 2 albums scheduled for the near future. Until then: enjoy this cult classic with 4 bonus tracks and a massive booklet (lyrics, interviews, photos, etc.). By the way, catch DAMIEN THORNE on their first trip to Germany in July 2003 at the Headbangers' Open Air or at the the Keep It True Festival in case they come to an agreement with Justin or find a new singer quickly. www.damienthorne.com, www.highvaultage.de
