SURGICAL STRIKE is a German band that released their debut EP “V:II:XII” in 2016, their first full-length album “Part Of A Sick World” in 2020, and now they have released their second studio album entitled “24/7 Hate.” Although founded in 1993, they did not manage to release anything during the 1990s and 2000s. The band split up between 1996 and 2014, but since their reformation, they have managed to record and release material. Their lineup consists of Jens “Stöpsel” Albert – lead vocals, Marcelo Vasquez Rocha – rhythm guitar, backing vocals, Frank Ruhnke – lead guitar, Florian Seybecke – Bass, backing vocals, and Joshua Jo – Drums. I received the lovely black vinyl edition of the album.

The artwork looks very nice due to its classic 80s band logo, and musically speaking, it’s full speed ahead fast Thrash Metal from start to finish. They are not looking back at all; this is classic 80s Bay Area aggressive Thrash Metal with cool shredding guitars all over the place. Vocally, it is very much reminiscent of bands like FORBIDDEN, KREATOR, OVERKILL, and a bit of SLAYER. It leans, as already mentioned, more towards the aggressive side of Thrash Metal, so don’t expect TESTAMENT and ANTHRAX-ish melodies, although the guitar work is, on the other hand, very melodic.

Thrash Metal will probably never die, and there will always be bands around somewhere playing the genre introduced during the 1980s. Especially in parts of Europe and South America, there is a huge market for the good old thrash metal sound. To all those fans of the mentioned bands, I can highly recommend the new vinyl album of SURGICAL STRIKE
