MAAX (U.S.) “Unholy Rock & Roll” DIGI CD review

by Aristocrazia Webzine

By Mourning

Nailed to a primeval world and blackened the Maax, American Indiana, seem to come out of the eighties period, influences like Venom, Celtic Frost / Hellhammer, punk and heavy, blocky to AC / DC are mixed with rattling thrash / black, enough to bring back to mind some people like Destroyer 666 and Bewitched.
So let’s start from the problems this time, the big one is definitely the total lack of personality, the release of pleasure-but at times is very bound up in far too many pre-existing reality, while still taking advantage of the practical solution “was so pissed at everything and everyone” The Maax we having fun splashing about.
Leaving aside the fact that the second “Fight With Fire” is more like a “cover” (I leave you to guess which piece) that an original song that moves the platter of medium quality without having more than enough episodes of prominent understand that “Unholy Rock & Roll” is one of those records that must be lived to the great time on songs like the opener “Coldest Steel”, the title track, “Black Thrash Em ‘All” and the closing “One More Time” corroborate this feeling of sudden adrenaline shock Exalted by a solo heavy oriented but little lasting, useful and satisfying to listen to once, alas forgot soon after.
The production is in line with sound, no “over-cleaned,” a lot ‘of healthy dirt to dress an album that deliberately and continually based on his being a nature that do not mind retro.
I am sure that the performance of Maax of “Unholy Rock & Roll” will for sure the fans, not least myself, is to keep in mind though that this type of release they are baked a lot now abnormal, with a “frequency” to say the least assiduous, and that the metal is something pretty clogged, it certainly does not play in their favor.
Weights are denied the purchase but not listening to a band that could still give you excellent company and hints of alcohol, those would help you and it never hurts to spend an evening “tipsy” and relaxed head banging like crazy.
