PANIKK - Unbearable Conditions

Unbearable Conditions is the debut full-length from Slovenia’s PANIKK. The band serves up a meaty slab of classic Bay Area thrash in the vein of DEFIANCE, VIO-LENCE, EXODUS and early-era DEATH ANGEL and TESTAMENT. It sounds like it came straight outta da ’80s. The nine blistering tracks that make up the album are filled with classic thrash elements including gang chants, nasally lead vocals, precision drums beats and dual axe assault with razor sharp riffs. There are some nice little ditties ’bout war, killing, death and destruction. The songs don’t outstay their welcome either and the length of the CD and the amount of tracks is perfect for a thrash album. There’s nothing here that’s completely outstanding or even very memorable, but the band show great promise within the genre. Panikk certainly isn’t doing anything new by any means, but if you already love thrash — be it classic or retro — then Panikk might tickle your fancy.
