Desaster - The Arts Of Destruction album FLAC

Album number seven, The Arts of Destruction, may be their most hyper-kinetic journey into looney tunes territory yet, and let me tell ya, it’s a whole lot of fucking fun to experience. That is, if you’re willing to leave your brain and prog appreciation at the door and wallow in the filth. I know I am! After an intro of swords clanging and battles raging, the title track rips out like Darkthrone‘s Transilvanian Hunger, with vocals that sound like one of the infected from the 28 Days films. In fact, one of the things that makes Desaster so enjoyable, is their committment to being so uniquely one-dimensional. These guys aren’t the most technical musicians out there, or the tightest, but man, this stuff is insanely amusing and as metal as Odin sponsoring a Manowar concert in Hell. Soupy, sloppy, overwrought, unintelligent black thrash.

The album title "The Arts of Destruction" to me sounds like a little homage to the band Destruction. But it seems as if I'm overinterpreting a bit here: "No, we wanted to reflect destruction and violence in the album title. But, hey, I don't mind if people think that's a homage to Destruction. After all, it was Schmier who christened us Desaster. He's is a good lad, maybe a bit over the top sometimes but honest down to the bone  . 2005's "Angelwhore" was the first album Desaster recorded for the legendary Metal Blade label. That's seven years now. Quite a long period of time.

The Arts of Destruction has a central sound to it, mainly taking a thrash approach and giving it undertones of melodic black metal, which Desaster does a fantastic job of manipulating when needed. For instance, tracks such as ‘Lacerate (The Rays of Doom),’ ‘The Splendor of the Idols,’ ‘Queens of Sodomy’ and ‘Troops of Heathens, Graves of Saints’ distinctly have a faster and more thrash-centric sound that is sometimes reminiscent of Show No Mercy by Slayer, particularly in the drumming and intricate cymbal work. The drums were miced up wonderfully, and I really enjoyed that aspect most of all through the album, and next to that would have to be the melodic riffs. Desaster have certainly proved to me why they are still around 24 years after the fact, because this band is more than capable of creating a visceral and memorable record in a melodic black/thrash mash-up.
