Act of Defiance
Old Scars, New Wounds
Company: Metal Blade
Release: 2017
Genre: Thrash
Reviewer: Eric Compton
Published: 10/5/2017

Much better than the debut and touches on thrash and melodic heavy
COMMENTS:
Second album for this Chris Broderick and Shawn Drover led band. The band's social commentary is prevalent throughout the album, lyrically touching on numerous topics relevant to today's strife. Musically, this is much better than the debut and touches on thrash and melodic heavy metal with a focus on quality playing. The 7-strings has a modern feel but doesn't misdirect the band's traditional approach. A solid record that sees the band with their own identity. The potential for great things is simply unlimited.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Testament, Megadeth, Nevermore
