I grew up in the 80's and had my first "spiritual" awakening after listening to Kill 'em All by Metallica. A friend of mine rehearsed in a Bunker and I met the guys from Tankard which lead me to grab my first Guitar and start thrashing.

I believe we all (even Metallica or Slayer) started by interpreting the good ol' stuff and tweakin' it to create our own sound. That count for all the new Bands riding the New Wave of Thrash Metal. Some are just plagiarists and others evolve and create their own kind of music. One of this bands is Angelus Apatrida. If you listen to Clockwork you'll find references all over (Bay Area and Teutonic Thrash combined with some Pantera-ish Groove elements) but, they made it their own.

Why re-invent the wheel, when you can keep it classy and old school? This is solid and entertaining thrash, with a certain old-and-thus-good Megadeth caliber. You should really give these guys a shot if you're remotely into thrash.

Very similar bands Megadeth and Pantera. Good thrash metal.

I listened to a few songs from this album. Music is not bad but the vocals totally turn me off.
It happens quite often to me with Thrash: many times I like the music but I also think the vocals suck.

If you are not after originality and you enjoy the highlights of old school thrash then...maybe you should give them a chance. Or you could just rely on your collection of classics.

A very solid release. I hope I will manage to catch them live on their upcoming tour, together with Warbringer and Skeletonwitch...

Even better, if you like it, support the band and actually buy a copy, FFS.

Ignoring how bands usually don't make money off their copies being bought, instead the record labels do, but whatever.
This is definitely something I need to check out.

This shit is brilliant... fuckin love these guys. I like that they can play "modernized" thrash, but it still fits with this classic stuff too... much agreed, Chuck Billy + Phil Anselmo + Rob Dukes = Guillermo Izquierdo. FUCKIN LOVE IT!

This album starts to grow in me, I didn't find it good at first listen, but after a couple of spins I find it more enjoyable, still I only find some memorable songs...

Me too. It's not very memorable to me. I am giving it some time to sink in again.
