Gama Bomb: The Terror Tapes
Gama Bomb - The Terror Tapes Album Review

Gama Bomb: The Terror Tapes

Heavy/Speed/Thrash Metal
4.0/5.0

Gama Bomb's The Terror Tapes: it's classic heavy metal, and speed metal, and thrash metal. It's fast, neck jerking, backbone cracking, fast metal. There's fast guitar solos too, and lots of them, usually. Through in the band's generally obtuse, sometimes nonsensical, lyrics, and things are complete.

Gama Bomb: terrifying.

Gama Bomb's The Terror Tapes is solid classic speed thrash metal. It's good. Best picks for that combination of speed and geekery: Backwards Bible, Beverly Hills Robocop, The Cannibals Are in the Streets, Shitting Yourself to Live, and hilarious, and short, Smoke the Blow with Willem Defoe. That's all you need to know. Read on if you wish; it's mostly filler to get to the other side of the band photo.

Gama Bomb, the band that made history by allowing a free download of their previous album while signed to a label, are back with their fourth album of adrenaline junkie speed thrash metal. Needless to say, from that fact, the band is now signed to a new label, AFM records. Haven't heard if they permitted a free download or whether the band did so any way. Anyway, to repeat myself, this is speed thrash metal; it starts fast and ends fast. But Gama Bomb still had time to throw in a ballad. Just kidding. That's just horseshit, and more filler. Easily recommended.

In Short

Gama Bomb's The Terror Tapes is, non-stop, contemporary classic heavy, speed, and thrash metal with sides of humor and tom-foolery.
