Review: Space Chaser – Watch The Skies

Another review written for Rock’n’Reel Reviews.

Space Chaser have boldly gone where many men have gone before, by tackling the ever-popular thrash scene. Heralded as being a staple of their tight-knit metal community in Berlin, one can assume that they’re hoping to make as good an impression on the rest of the world.

Their début Watch The Skies is another contemporary attempt at re-creating the noise and mayhem of a decade once past. In that respect alone it does a great job at capturing that beer-drenched energy. If you’re imagining a harsh sounding, Teutonic metal throwback however, think again. This is definitely American influenced and the quintet celebrates alien invasions, hazardous waste themed, cartoon-like thrash. They sound like they’re having a great time too. The tracks are fast, frantic and shred-tastic, led by an old-school, wailing vocal style. Fans of Municipal Waste and Gama Bomb should back this.

It’s no innovation (an almost impossible task these days) but holding out through these ten snappy tracks is a definite joy-ride. The band should be as welcome into the modern circuit as their international peers.

Personal Score: 3/5
