Drzauni Neprijatelj Broj Ket
November 2009
Released: 2009, Area Death Productions
Rating: 2.0/5
Reviewer: Luxi Lahtinen

I love crossover/thrash stuff. When in my 20-somethings, I was introduced to many crossover/thrash metal acts during the 80s; Ludichrist, DxRxIx, Crumbsuckers, C.o.C., Cryptic Slaughter, Soothsayer, Attitude Adjustment and so many others coming to my mind first. The whole crossover thing was really great during the 80s, and it´s sometimes good to see some new bands going back to that classic crossover sound, and trying to make their best of it.

That is what this Serbian 4-piece crossover/thrash act named Nadimac, is also (at least) trying to do on the band´s so far only full-length album, DRZAVNI NEPRIJATELJ BROJ KEC. The album contains also the band´s 5-song self-released EP, titled METAL JE RAT (translated “Metal Is War” in English), but as a fully re-recorded version.

Nadimec plays simple, fast-paced, raw and punk-ish crossover thrash, and indeed its intention is to obtain some of that ´magic & mayhem´ where such crossover acts like DxRxI, Crumbsuckers, etc., were once so good and convincing at. The only problem is that even if they have surely tried their very best to make Nadimec´s stuff to turn the ears of some cultivated and experienced crossover/thrash fans to their side, I think the nostalgic value of this album grows old simply way too soon. Sure thing, it is always nice to hear this type of stuff churned out from some other places of the world than some of your favorite crossover/thrash troops from the axis of BA-NY-Montreal-Beauport – and in fact I bet the Serbian Nadimec has reached a pretty good following in their home country too, amongst the circles of crossover/thrash metal fans at least. It´s just too bad their stuff hardly makes me to want to revisit their album any more, let´s say, after the first 2-3 rounds or so. It´s no denying that the album has its cool, nostalgic moments, but unfortunately they just don’t carry too far, if I am completely honest with all of you.

Uh, anyway… NP: Crumbsuckers LIFE OF DREAMS
