Less Perfect Than Death (EP)
Released: 2000, Ressurection A.D. Records
Arson seem to have cut their teeth on some of the more influential thrash bands of our time, which is evident on this 2 track CD. Formed in 1998, this New Jersey outfit impress with their brutality yet tightness. Less Perfect Than Death brings Slayer and early Sepultura to mind . Cool riffs and some nice drum work with an abrasive vocal style that seems to go hand in hand with today’s thrash.
The second track “Engraved”, my fav out of the two, is more of a Machine Head/Sacred Reich feel to it. Brutally heavy, yet finding time to slip into a “groove” in places. Very impressive for a band that’s only been together a couple of years. Already getting exposure playing w/bands such as Biohazard and Dillinger Escape Plan.
