Sadistic Ritual - Atlanta five-piece whose high-speed shred fest rekindles a classic '80s thrash/death metal crossover assault. The lashing guitar attacks bound by the blackened outer limits of thrash, dissonance, and screaming tempos in "Neurotoxin" erupt with so much skull-rattling speed and intensity that it threatens to rip itself apart at every searing riff. And what the song "Hellish Mercenary" packs onto vinyl only hints at the blitzkrieg behind the band's songs when they're played live. (Creative Loafing) Chad Radford
