FUCK OFF

FUCK OFF
A Different Sacrifice 1987 - 1988
(Xtreem Music)
40:12min

Dave Rotten, main man behind the Spanish label Xtreem Music, seems to be one of the busiest guys around right now. Once again, he dug out a forgotten band. This time it's Spanish Thrash Metal pioneers FUCK OFF, who released two albums ("Another Sacrifice" and "Hell On Earth") and an untitled 7" in their first period of existence from 1986 to 1990. They reunited in 2010, but haven't released anything new yet. This CD is a compilation of all the songs from their first album "Another Sacrifice", leaving out a cover version of SLAYER's 'Black Magic', and their 7", both released in 1988. On the label page I read, that the versions found here are different from the original releases, alternative takes with a better sound. But they still sound like old school Thrash anyway... FUCK OFF might have had a strong stand in the Spanish scene back then, but the rest of the world hardly recognized them. And it's not hard to understand why. The majority of the songs were too tame and quite a little uninspired, like the whole Thrash scene around that time. Songs like 'No Return' or 'Born To Die' weren't that bad, but they miss the final kick in the face. Just two songs really gained my attention. 'Sueño Maldito' is the only one sung in Spanish language, giving the song its own special character. The single B-side 'Fuck Off', so to say the band anthem, is the only song here that doesn't sound like Bay Area Thrash Metal, but has a touch of NUCLEAR ASSAULT and a punky attitude as well. But two nice songs don't make a great record, and even though the idea is laudable, I fear this record will never be a classic which belongs in every household. Those of you who still listen to bands like ACROPHET or ATROPHY should give them a chance anyway and check: www.facebook.com/grupo.fukkoff?fref=ts or www.xtreemmusic.com
