ACCUSER- DEPENDENT DOMINATION (*NEW-CD w Collector Card, 2022, Brutal Planet) elite German Thrash

  • New, Sealed CD
  • Jewel Case




It’s good to know that Accuser is around, the thrash metal scene kind of feels safer with their intense rifforamas keeping the fans alive and moving; world domination continues to elude them, but the underground has already preserved a firm spot for them in the “reliant metal stalwarts” pantheon.

Imagine a mix of late 80's Metallica, mixed with later day Testament, some of the groove of Pantera and perhaps just a touch of Machine Head. That's sort of the mixture of sound that makes up "Dependent Domination."

When talking about Teutonic (German) Thrash Legend Pioneers it’s essential to speak of 
ACCU§ER with the same hushed reverence as SODOMKREATOR, and DESTRUCTION. ACCU§ER is a thrash metal band from Kreuztal, Germany that formed in the early 80’s flying the crunchy speed & thrash metal flag with all the fervor of the most intense mosh pit imaginable. Despite not landing a contract with a major label for their early albums, the band continued to release a string of successful underground releases before disbanding for eight years. After Frank and René decided to get Accuser back together, the saga continued with the band releasing one album with Century Media and their three most recent albums with Metal Blade Records. The guitars are energetic and thick as a brick with aggressive melodic vocals. ACCU§ER is the perfect band for those who worship at the altar of technical thrash and speed metal in the vein of classic Metallica, Slayer, Believer, Death Angel, Dark Angel and Deliverance. With such strong lyrical content and musical brilliance, fans can now have access to these previously high-priced collectibles. These are essential head-bangers!

After only a year, the reunited Accu§er returns with another new album. With "Dependent Domination", the band sticks to their musical guns, cranking out more straight riff heavy thrash that falls somewhere between their 80's sound and their more groove oriented 90's albums. As usual, the guitars are heavy, thick and carry most of the songs. As with the band's 2010 comeback album, the first actual song (after a short intro) simply pounds you over the skull with pure intensity and sheer aggression. This is what modern thrash metal should sound like; chugging riffs, smoking guitar leads, pounding drums and head-banging songwriting. The follow-up track "Torn To Pieces" slows down the paced a bit, adds some more groove, but doesn't diminish the intensity whatsoever. Both these songs are simply crushing and reinforce what I like so much about Accu§er. "Escape from the Oath" is a fast-paced thrasher with a quick down-beat and some small Slayer-riffic guitar passages. "The Cause of all Evil" features some nice machine gun riffing. Frank Thorns' vocals here are aggressive and shouted in an almost punk-like fury, though in no way would I describe them as being "core." Imagine a mix of late 80's Metallica, mixed with later day Testament, some of the groove of Pantera and perhaps just a touch of Machine Head. That's sort of the mixture of sound that makes up "Dependent Domination." Once again, the current crop of thrash purists may not particularly like the more modern elements, or the bits of groove mixed into Accu§er's sound. However those who don't hold bands up to a rigid definition of what thrash should be should find much to like about Accu§er.
