Nuclear Assault Third World Genocide
Comeback albums use to be problematic. So it is in this case.
I`m afraid, they returned mostly to their weakest album "Out of Order", not to excellent and consistent (!) first three, nor creating something new and refreshing.
Anyway, it is listenable due to good sound and some strong moments, but their ability to write real great song was lost somewhere during the time. They just pick up something from this and something from that, and it doesn`t work when you want to create album, that could be compared to their best.
But it is not catastrophe either, I`m just fine that I could hear some other release from them.

Nuclear Assault Assault & Battery
Great addition to NA discography.
This is perfect compilation from NA early days. Most of the tracks here were previously unreleased or B-sides from their singles, with some live tracks added. A must for any NA fan!

Nuclear Assault Alive Again
Nice live album with classic NA line-up, from their 2002 reunion for some concerts.
Yes, this is a great live set with most of their best songs, but I can`t rid off the feeling, that this release is quite unnecessary... it really brings nothing new.
Fifteen (or more) years old songs played in classic line-up will probably gratify their old fans, and maybe some newcomers too.

Prince Purple Rain
One of the best albums of all times. OK than...
This music is so sweet, that after listening to it I need no more sugar to my coffee. And it is so heartbreaking, that I even don`t need no more coffee, because my cup broke.
Eighties radio music is really nothing I`d be looking for... even if this one may have high quality, it just doesn`t work for me...

Nuclear Assault Something Wicked
This a solid heavy / thrash metal record. Unluckily, after important line-up changes on bass and guitar, this doesn`t keep the spirit of Nuclear Assault alive. More melodies, more grooves, longer songs, and only a very little of that uncompromising aggresiveness they had on their classic records. So main touching point with their great past is only Bramante`s vocals.

Nuclear Assault Out of Order
Bad news is, that this album meant an end to NA classic era. Good news is, that personal problems in the band led bassist Lilker to found new excellent band, Brutal Truth.
Music on this album is not completely bad, but very inconsistent, with weak songwriting. Not much of their blasting thrash stayed here. This is more like average HC band meeting some average thrash. Singing on some songs is really weak. At least they didn`t forget how to play on their instruments, some passages are still great.
Song 5 ends by pulling chain on toilette and unfortunately it describes quite well what this record does with their fans.

Nuclear Assault Live at the Hammersmith Odeon
Released in 1992, but recorded on April 1989, when the band was in its life form. As I like any of their records until 1989, I am satisfied with this live record too, though generally I prefer studio albums.
First eight songs are their longer classics from all of their releases. End of the show brings more crazy atmosphere with short thrashcore tracks, by which they were famous too. Sound is just live, quite rough, but surely not terrible.
Great album for any NA fan.

  • mkamrass Hey man! So far in my life, college just started up again for me and I continue to work at my job also. As you can see, I have been listening to a fairly good amount of music also when I have the time. On an exciting note, I saw Revenge, Watain, and Mayhem two days ago in concert when they came to my town and the show was amazing! Other than that, not much else haha. How about you?

  • mkamrass As you can see, I have not been on here too much because I have been busy with college, but I will now be on here more often because I just finished up my first semester of college and I am now on break. It is a big relief now that I can relax.

  • mkamrass Hey again, it is once again good to hear from you. And yes, I see you have over a 1000 ratings which is a big number to get to, but that is awesome. You were in the hospital for alcohol?? Like alcohol poisoning or something else because of drinking too much? I do not drink and for something bad like that to happen, it is not worth it to drink that much, but I hope you are doing better now.

  • mkamrass Yeah, with 500 soundoffs, that is a big number too. I appreciate that you find interest in my ratings and what I have listened to. If you ever need any recs, just ask. By the way, I did not realize that you did not know what "recs" meant but it is all good now that you know haha. I also appreciate the recs that you have given me; I will hopefully check them out sometime in my fairly busy schedule. All in all, it is awesome to hear from you again. :)
