Destitution - Beware the Fury of the Patient Man (2014)


With the Netherlands being a huge supplier of female-fronted Metal bands, it is always quite refreshing to hear bands trying different genres. Desitution delivers ten tracks of old-school Thrash Metal with modern production values and the original attitude of the 80’s. Featuring a very retro sound and packaging, this digipack is one solid debut release.

Instantly channeling their inner Kreator, “Mr. Greedy” opens the release with solid vocals and excellent guitar leads. The vocals have that very distinct Thrash ring to them that allows them to fully take command of each song. Not being slackers, Destitution delivers plenty of songs over 3:30 minutes long, with some of them even clocking 5 or more minutes. This allows the tracks to fully develop by themselves and features a wide variety of guitars leads and melodic sections like “Criticize”, “”Vigilante” and “Alcathrash”.

The hard hitting “Guilty Until Proven Innocent” is a clear example of the band’s musical quality, filled with killer leads, intense drumming, and a pulsating bass guitar line. Changing the pace a bit, the mellow “Affinity” has a certain ballad-esque edge with some clean guitars making it quite different and unique (for this release). Arriving in Death territories, the brilliant closer “Beware the Fury of the Patient Man”, showcases more of the band’s technical side in a very prominent and engaging song.

As a whole, “Beware the Fury of the Patient Man” is one hell of a solid Thrash Metal release that will appeal to all the nostalgic fans of the genre, as well as to the new found fans of the current Thrash Metal revival years. If you like catchy Thrash with solid technical skills and a crystal clear production, Destitution is a band you must check out.
