Split release by legendary US hardcore band VERBAL ABUSE (featuring old singer Nicki Sicki again), German/American skate/punkrock band SCHEISSE MINELLI and Dutch loud and fast hardcore band THE SHINING.

VERBAL ABUSE SCHEISSE MINNELLI. SHINING, The - Speed Kills.....But How`s Dying ?

Speed Kills... But Who’s Dying {Just4Fun} Three bands, five tracks each and as the title suggests, you won’t find any sludgey Grunge here. The infamous VERBAL ABUSE kick off. Any USHC fan will know their classic ‘Just An American Band’ album and these recordings see original vocalist, Nicki Sicki back in the fold. Besides the bile-laced hyper Thrash of ‘My Disease’ and ‘3 Seconds’, there is a slight slowing of pace - most notably on ‘I Don’t Feel Right’. Not too sure about some of the double bass drum beats, but generally this is a convincing return. Germany’s SCHEISSE MINNELLI follow with the sneering, ominous and sarcastic crawl of ‘Mindless’ before exploding into a DEAD KENNEDYS meets OFFENDERS tight, intense Thrash that grabbed a few guitar chops from ANNIHILATION TIME. Vocalist Samuel el Action is actually an American who possesses a clear, strong and decidedly arrogant voice. Best band here! Amsterdam’s THE SHINING finish off with some proficient Bay Area-esque Thrash Metal guitars and glass-gargling growled vocals. There’s a hint of RAW POWER and some NYHC-stylee backing vocals here and there, but generally it’s a bit too Metal for my ears. It’s all over in under half-an-hour; for those who like it short, fast and loud, this could be your compilation of the year. (29.09.11) www.scannerzine.com

Verbal Abuse / Scheisse Minelli / The Shining – Speed Kills… But Who’s Dying

Verbal Abuse / Scheisse Minelli / The Shining – Speed Kills… But Who’s Dying SPLIT CD (Just 4 Fun)
Although Verbal Abuse is about 20 years older than the other bands on this three-way split, their energy levels are still out of this world, and they can still teach the youngsters a trick or two. Five amazing, short and hard-hitting songs, by a legendary band now with old singer Nicki Sicki on vocals again. Scheisse Minnelli are of US / German descent, but their sound is very much American. It’s all about speed too, but this band has more cross over feel than Verbal Abuse. Final band are the Amsterdam thrash kings, The Shining. Being the metal head I am, I love this band the most. Pure uncut thrash from time when both Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies where in their infancy. The band can, these days, best be compared to Municipal Waste, but even more out of control. Guess you never thought that was possible. Get your skate boards out and act like it’s 1985. Go! Martijn Welzen
