This is a review of another compilation from Bunker 66 which shows them continuing their mixture of black metal, punk and thrash with the cassette being released in 2014 and containing their 2012 album "Inferno Interceptors" and their side of the split with Italy's Barbarian.
A very raw, aggressive and old school thrash sound starts off the compilation along with some elements of punk rock and aggressive 80's style extreme metal vocals and after awhile the music starts bringing in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some elements of traditional metal.
When solos and leads are added into the music they continue the old school metal tradition that is a very huge part of the bands musical style and while the music is still very heavily rooted in the first wave of black metal there are more elements of thrash and punk this time around as well as the band bringing in a great amount of back up gang shouts.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and on some of the later tracks the melodic scream that was very common in first wave black metal show up in certain sections of the recording and the y close the album with an instrumental before going into the songs from the split which are also in the same direction of the full length but with more of a black metal vocal approach as well as a cover of Convulsed's "Psychopharmax Convulsions".
Bunker 66 continue their mixture of black metal, punk and thrash of previous recordings while also getting a little bit more melodic and adding in traditional metal elements and all of their songs sound like they easily could of been recorded and released in the 1980's, the production sound s very raw and old school while the lyrics cover nuclear war, urban tales and occultism.
In my opinion this is another great sounding compilation from Bunker 66 and if you are a fan of black metal punk and thrash, you should check out this cassette. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Overnight Sacrifice" "Storm of the Usurper" "We Guys Are From Hell" and "Global Thermonuclear War". 8 out of 10.
