Disaffection: Begin the Revolution

Heavy/Thrash Metal
Rating: 4.5/5.0

Brazilian thrashers Disaffection wear their heavy metal hearts, and influences, on their sleeves. The debut album, Begin the Revolution on Bombworks Records, is pure old school heavy/thrash metal reminding of Anvil, Kreator, Deliverance and, to a lesser extent, Slayer. Headbanging riffs and often blazing speed are combined with gritty vocals, the essential echo and shout background vocals, and well-placed burning solos. These are placed over strong melodic, yet biting, arrangements, and undergirded by Christian themes. Certainly, this is not novel. Nevertheless, Disaffection knows their metal genre and truly rips it up on Begin the Revolution. While the entire work shows exceptional skill and blistering songs listen for these fist-pumping tracks: Simple Ideas, Mystery of God, I Wanna See the Kaos, and Which One's the Truth. The single flaw may be that this album is too short with only ten tracks. With the old school being the new school these days, you will not find much better classic heavy and thrash metal than Disaffection's Begin the Revolution. Very recommended.
