Review: Guillotine – Blood Money [2009]

amazon-guillotineSweden’s Guillotine slay the world with their authentic brand of hostile thrash metal on the reunited unit’s latest 12-track affair BLOOD MONEY. Melding blistering speed, groovy riffs, and disciplined rhythms, there’s a whole lot of  Kreator and Exodus in these guy’s bag of tricks as tracks like “Insane Oppression” and “War” denote, yet there’s also a Sacred Reich-esque vibe permeating from cuts like “Die/Live?” and some sweet apocalyptic lyrical content in “Our Darkest Day.” And of course, being from Sweden, how can you play thrash and not borrow a bit from The Haunted (“Welcome to Dying”)? A rousing slab of headbanging and tasty riffs abound, Guillotine bind a strong cross-section of elements that make great thrash metal together, developing a stirring offering for those who enjoy an insatiable need for speed wrought in wrath. -Mike SOS
