This is album number two for the German old-school thrashers. Like the album says, the band, which includes members of two veteran and respected acts Lanfear and Atlantean Kodex, has been watching the news and they don’t like what they see. They are not the biggest fans of capitalism, they have been observing the development of social problems, and have kept an eye on politics, all the while writing rocking tunes for banging your head.
It seems like lots of thrash bands do not like the 2018 president of the United States due to the musicians’ liberal politics, and Septagon is amongst the bunch that love to hate him every day of their lives. Given that the media have an unhealthy obsession with the man, watching the news makes many people hate him obsessively and compulsively. Septagon has written at least one song directly about him: P.O.T.U.S.A., President of the United States of Absurdistan. It’s angry, it’s headbanging, it’s obscene, and you might not want to play it in the presence of children, or supporters of the president.
Will conservative thrash fans that support the president enjoy hearing a band that insults him? Of course, not. Therefore, liberal, leftist thrash fans should be pleased with the Germans’ decision to take out all their political frustrations and their hatred of the U.S. president through memorable, fun thrash music. It’s done well, with a good production (you can hear the bass well, for instance), with good melodies, good thrash singing and catchy songs. Some people will love the album, others will not like the band’s approach of dividing the audience into liberals/conservatives and saying, “conservatives not welcome here.”
