NADIMAC
NADIMAC
Po Kratkom Postupku
(AreaDeath Productions)
35:44min

There’s something alluring about eastern European Metal. It’s the sort of country notorious in our day and age for keeping the 80s spirit alive; where fans are more die-hard, more dedicated to the bands they love. NADIMAC do their part to enforce this (positive, I think) stereotype by playing one of the 1980s many briefly lived hybrid genres, crossover- and very fast crossover at that (nothing soft like CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER). In fact a discernible stylistic link to bands such as MASSACRA (France) can be heard in many songs on this 14 track album; 'Samo Kec', '“Izmedju Dve Vatre' being but a couple. A more rhythmic, and somewhat slower but no less enjoyable, pace sets the tone for the last several tracks. By track 11, 'Betstvo Od Slobode', the listener has traveled to a later point in Metal history, the early 90s when American Thrash reached its commercial peak. Ironically, perhaps since this shift from insanely fast crossover to still-fast-but-not-insane Thrash was made by many, many such bands in the 80s, NADIMAC have actually produced a more thoroughly old school album than I at first believed. Hm, this bears some consideration. A very fine cover of KREATOR’s all-time classic “Pleasure To Kill", then two tracks conveniently titled in English, so they’re easy to pronounce, 'Suicidal Command' and 'Grinding Crossfire'. These two tracks conclude on a thrashy note, and thus ends one hell of a good record. The cover art, which depicts a demonic Speed Metal clown gripping what looks like a scythe, looks cool, but what the hell’s with the clown make-up? What are you guys trying to do, trick us into thinking this is a Black Metal album? www.myspace.com/nadimacbend, http://adp.areadeath.net
