The World Will Burn: Severity

In the 90s, brothers Dale and Troy Thompson set the White Metal world on fire with scorching albums like Kinetic Faith and Snakes in the Playground that still reward listeners today. Dale returns in this new collaboration with multi-instrumentalist Alan Zaring (and occasional assists from brother Troy), his gutsy vibrato none the worse for the wear. Metal albums run the risk of “it all sounds the same” syndrome, but Zaring proves adept at mixing it up nicely from track to track. Tasty guitar licks propel uncompromising lyrics through thirteen tracks perfect for gospel headbanging.
