Angelus Apatrida Hidden Evolution
Very solid, very consistent thrash metal album which will surely turn out to be one of 2015's stronger metal releases. No particular highlights here for me stand out because there's isn't one which is filler material. I do, however, think the album has a very fitting closer, even if a little long. Musicianship is solid, and vocals are nicely versatile, though they do at times remind me of Rob Jukes in his Exodus period.

A very solid album with some outstanding ambitious tracks and some which are by comparison much less effective. That said my main problem with the album is how the vocals half the time feel too forceful as opposed to just seeming natural...but then I guess I should have expected that walking into a hardcore album. Nonetheless, the highlights are practically obvious for me-"In Circles" and "Depression" particularly impressed me.
