Memory Garden

Verdict of Posterity (Metal Blade)
Enslain Magazine Issue #6
Order Issue #6!  This review included. The first 30 seconds or so of this album screams Slayer, from around the "Hell Awaits" days. But don't get too excited, it doesn't stay that way. It gets much lighter with very clear, distinct vocals. A strange combination, to say the least, the strong point of the album is some decent guitar work and a drummer that knows how to manipulate the guitar sound that is going on. Another non-American band that is putting together some real old fashioned metal, assuming you like the vocals, similar to Flotsam & Jetsam's "When the Storm Comes Down." These guys deserve an ovation for not being trendy and putting out something that they liked instead of what everyone else wanted. -- Chris
