Review: Skox - Years Of Legions


Honestly this is one of the better thrash albums I have heard in a long time, and I am into thrash metal bands. This band is bringing in a sound of thrash I have not seen or heard since the old days of Sepultura. With the very harsh vocals for thrash and really clean sounding distorted guitar tone, the album is really sounding like Sepultura. Going into the individual songs now, the sound quality is superb. All the instruments are heard, the guitar is razor sharp, the bass is roaring in the mix, the drums are surprisingly clear and punch though the mix very well for me at least. The vocals may be a point of contention for someone, as they are more to kin for a band like Kreator, as they are more similar to death metal style of vocals than to thrash, but they do fit the album like a glove, as if you had normal thrash vocals it would leave a pretty big dent in the songs. All in all, even though this is the age of thrash in the mainstream of metal, it is really difficult to find good thrash bands, and this one is certainly one of the better in the modern thrash times. I give this album a 9/10.
