Debt Of Nature - Crush, Kill And Burn

I really dig death metal and thrash metal and I do like death-thrash but for me it has to be done a certain way or it can be repetitive and for want of a better word boring to these ears, regardless of how well it is played/produced. Let me quantify that statement. Death-thrash can be slightly confused, the singer often feels the need to be the death half of the equation and the music does a mixture of the two and sometimes it works very well see Legion Of The Damned and sometimes it semi-works see Debt Of Nature.

That leads me to the name, at the end of the day it is just a name but what does this mean? It seems to be a little lost in translation. This album is well played, well produced death-thrash. There is not a whole lot of originality here we have the death influence and the thrash influence but as with a lot of this type of music there is nothing that stands out and grabs the listener.

Don't get me wrong, this band will appeal to a lot of fans and is by no means bad but for this listener fails to land the knock out punch.
