My buds from Arizona are back with another killer new release. This time around ST.
MADNESS hits us with 17 songs in the form of "CANONIZING CARNAGE". ST.
MADNESS has been around since the early nineties and they play a hybrid style of Metal
music. They blend in many elements of Traditional Heavy Metal, Thrash / Speed Metal and
some Power Metal along with some New Wave Of British Heavy Metal styled music as well.
They have changed some band members on this release and they seem to have gotten a bit
heavier and faster. They used to lean more towards the Traditional Heavy Metal sound, but
on this album they seem to lean more on the Thrash / Speed Metal side. There is a crunchier
sound in the guitars on this release as well. The vocals of Prophet are kind of raw and gruff
sounding Thrash vocals mixed with some more straight forward clean melodic Metal vocals.
I know these guys do a lot of theatrics in their stage show and after one listen of this new
release I even more want to see them live. I have been following this great band for years and
have seen them put out great album after great album. "CANONIZING CARNAGE" is by
far their best release to date. ST. MADNESS has elements of BLACK SABBATH, early
METALLICA, early, SLAYER, JUDAS PRIEST, MOTORHEAD, early MOTLEY
CRUE & PANTERA all mixed in. If this isn't a great mix of Metal bands, then I don't know
what is? Pick up this release and work your way back through their catalog of releases.
Support this amazing band & check out the interview I did with them a few years back! I
love this band & I'm glad they are still alive and kicking! Metal till the end!!!
