Nuclear Hatred are a band from New York that plays a crossover mixture of hardcore and thrash metal and this is a review of their self released and self titled 2016 album.
Movie samples start off the album before going into a very fast and aggressive thrash metal direction along with some 80's style spoken yet aggressive vocals that are also influenced by punk and the back up vocals add a touch of hardcore to the music and the songs sound like they could of been recorded and released 30 years ago.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they remain true to an old school style of thrash metal and a lot of t he tracks are very short in length while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while blast beats are also utilized at times and as the album progresses the guitar riffing starts utilizing more melody and clean guitars are added briefly on the last track.
Nuclear Hatred plays a musical style that takes the 80's styles of thrash metal, punk and hardcore and mixes them together to create a very heavy throwback to the past, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover horror-science fiction movies and violent themes.
In my opinion Nuclear Hatred are a very great sounding old school thrash/crossover band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Greater Evil" "Norman Bates" and "World War Z". 8 out of 10.
