Citizen Vicious are a band from Canada that plays a mixture of thrash, rock and punk and this is a review of their 2014 album "Loud, Mean, Fast And Dirty" which was released by Hellstorm Records.
Motorcycle sounds start off the album before going into a heavy thrash metal direction along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful along with some aggressive vocals and screams which also leads up to more rock orientated guitar solos and then th e music starts mixing thrash, rock and punk together.
The music on this album is very old school sounding but done in a more modern fashion having a sound that is close to Motorhead mixed with Minor Threat and the Supersuckers as well as having elements of 70's classic rock and they always mix in the various styles with the heaviness of both hardcore and thrash and the last track is a cover of Steppenwolf's "Born To Be Wild" which also has a small amount of death metal elements mixed in with the growls.
Citizen Vicious create their own sound with this album that they call thrash'n'roll which mixes thrash, hardcore, rock and punk together wit h the music being very retro yet modern at the same time, the production is very professional sounding and the lyrics cover drinking, dark and everyday themes.
In my opinion Citizen Vicious are a very great sounding thrash'n'roll band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Shitfaced" "The Reaper" "Welcome To Hell" and "Evil Eyes". 8 out of 10.
