A Little Bit About the Band Atomic Fear

Atomic Fear is one of the latest thrash metal bands that has come onto the scene in Mexico and while Mexico isn't a country that is known for thrash metal, there are a few bands that I've written about and Atomic Fear is the latest one that I've heard and these guys may take some getting used to because of the intensity of the music and the relentless speed that is on display here. We will review and analyze the album Infernal Militia.


The Album's First Song Metal Slug Is One of the Best

Metal Slug is a fast and better version of the band Slayer because of the way that the melody is structured in the song. There is the constant chant of the words “metal” and “metal slug” and I know that it is obvious what the goal is for these guys. Atomic Fear may be one of the best Mexican bands since the debut of the band Buried Dreams which was ages ago!


A Brief Look At the Pros and Cons of the Album Infernal Militia

What is heard on the album Infernal Militia is really heavy thrash metal that is done with force, enthusiasm, and aggression. However, the album isn't flawless because the approach on it is the same, heavy drawn out riffing.

“Fake Liberty” is a song that again describes a situation in which chaos has ensued and the idea of having a functioning government is a pipe dream. This is a promising musical release and it will be added to bands such as Tulkas and Blast Fury as Mexican thrash bands that give the country hope that it can make a rise in the metal genre. How far Mexico can advance as a country in terms of thrash metal will depend on fan interest, marketing, and heavy promotion. If Metallica has a song called Metal Militia which consists of relentless speed, the album Infernal Militia does a very good job in presenting that speed with none of that early, raw sound and gives it a good modern twist.


"Infernal Militia" Song Only

***k Sucker is a song that sounds like the band Kreator and I know what some of us may be thinking. Why would a thrash metal group, any band write a song with a title such as this? It is just one of those things that's never made much sense to me but the song is a good modern Kreator riff influenced song. “Infernal Militia” is a song that is basically the band letting loose all of its thrash metal tactics as the song opens up the world of thrash and speed is the main quality about this song.


Final Thoughts About the Album Infernal Militia

“Revolution” is a song that lyrically is about fighting for your freedom and your rights because you deserve them. In a democracy, the government cannot take away your basic freedoms. The song says that fear is only a twist made by the government to destroy the lives of their citizens. “Infection” is a good sounding song that has a little bit of the influence of the band Kreator. I found it hard to listen to this album at first due to the circumstances in life and sometimes trying to listen to some heavy metal albums all the way through is very tough. At least early on, this album isn't mediocre like the one man band Hellrot. This is actually thrash metal from Mexico that works.
