When you look at the cover of As We Fight’s newest release, it gives you the impression of a pop/rock act, which is totally wrong. The band plays a very aggressive style of thrash/hardcore with two lead vocalists and have won Denmark’s award for best live band. After over 100 shows all over Europe, the band is following up their 2004 debut album with this brand-new punch-in-your-face album.
The album is, as the title says, an explosive tornado of music in a furious tempo. It’s both technical and heavy, and the material is absolutely brilliant in every possible way. All of the songs are equally strong and all make my list of killer tracks.
Jacob Bredahl (Hatesphere) recorded MIDNIGHT TORNADO and Tue Madsen mixed and mastered it. Both Madsen and Bredahl are geniuses at what they do and contribute an astonishing musical landscape to an astounding album.
As We Fight definitely delivered one of last year’s best thrash/hardcore albums. I really hope that they go on tour soon so everyone has the chance to see them live. MIDNIGHT TORNADO is a musical punch-in-the-face and it will certainly be played a lot more before I put it aside.
