RADIATION SICKNESS (U.S.) “Reflections of a Psychotic Past” CD review by www.hailsandhorns.com

By Tony Shrum

RADIATION SICKNESS gives a solid attempt at thrusting themselves (back?) into relevancy of the extreme metal scene with their first studio release in twenty years, Reflections of a Psychotic Past. Most of the tracks are short and sweet (less than two and a half minutes) with some noticeable thrash and death metal influences. They do a nice job making sure you know they have a bass player and give him a few funky breaks from time to time, which feel a little odd but fitting. At times, the guitar work seems a little muddled, but that may just have to do with the recording. Notable tracks on the album would be “Graveside View,” “No Future,” and “Malignant Existence.” All in all, had this album been put out twenty years ago, no doubt it would have ruled, and for those of you who believe they haven’t made real metal since 1991, by all means, gobble it up. However, released in 2012, this album can easily fall to the wayside of more progressive bands of the same genre who have managed to stay frothing in metalheads’ mouths.
