Outrage A.D. – “New Blood”

Those in the know peg death metal’s beginnings to somewhere in the 1980’s, with Death’s “Scream Bloody Gore” held up as the archetypal early death metal record. An offshoot of thrash metal, early death metal shifted its focus from politics to horror – and inspired by the likes of extreme metal bands like Venom, seemed to revere Old Nick; lyrically, and in the album art.* *Disclaimer: I know precious little about early death metal, so a big shout out goes to Banger TV (Canada).

Outrage A.D., founded in 1992 by Mart Marion (vox/guitar), Nick Richer (drums) and Art Robillard (bass), had its roots in thrash metal. They released two EP’s on cassette, 1992’s “Hail God”, followed by “Waiting for the Son” a year later. For their debut full-length release (on Nosral Recordings) Mart, Nick and new bassist, Nicolas Miquelon revisited a few early favourites and also wrote new material for “New Blood”, out on 23 February 2018. Phew! Try saying all that in one breath! But I digress.

With “New Blood”, my lesson was “Don’t judge an album by the first song”. Were I to have only listened to the opening track, “God”, I may not have picked it up – and I’ll have missed out. This band’s songcraft truly evolves with every track. That said, there are things I like about the album opener: the guitar that winds up like a great rock ‘n roll propeller; and the riffing that follows on. Mart handles both the normal pitch and the growl competently, but admittedly I’ve gotten used to the contemporary death metal grunt that registers even lower on the vocal scale. Continue reading »
