Judgement hail from Serbia and play decent run-of-the-mill heavy metal with an occasional thrashy edge to it. The vocals are clean and relatively inoffensive, meaning that they aim more for melody than any kind of aggressiveness and the singer does a decent job, not overdoing it and his style is varied enough to be noticed. The music itself is OK, but that's about it. It's rather accessible easy-going heavy metal like you've heard it so many times before, but Judgement will have to work hard to make themselves noticed – lots of good releases out there, folks! A little bland but showing hints that there's more under the covers.

2018 06 10 185902Agilní vydavatelství Metal Scarp Records, chrlí jednu nahrávku za druhou, jestliže se zprvu věnovalo především kapelám z bývalého sovětského bloku, tak v současnosti brousí kde se dá. Tentokráte padla volba na srbské thrashers JUDGEMENT. Jedná se o poměrně mladou kapelu, na svém kontě mají zatím jen dva demosnímky a debutní EP „Judegement“. Hudebně se tato parta pohybuje někde na pomezí heavy a thrash metalu, přičemž tam zaslechnete i odvar epic metalu. Není to taková ta pravá sekanice nebo řezničina jakou známe od spolků z Bay Area, je to spíše středně tempá heavy jízda, sem tam proložená thrashovým riff em. Je to celé, takové jakoby rychle utřepané, není se čeho chytit. Žádná chytlavá melodie, nebo refrén. Po stránce zvukové to taky není žádný zázrak, hlavně první tři skladby. Z tohoto EP jsem celkem zklamán, protože promo leták, hlásal něco o progresu, melodických sólech, chytlavém zpěvu, dokonce určil tento materiál pro fanoušky ICED EARTH, RAGE, CONTROL DENIED, ANNIHILATOR, tak to tedy v žádném případě! Však to znáte, nějak se pozornost musí upoutat, ale tohle tedy ne! Je pravdou, že poslední dvě skladby „Stormriders“ a „Metal Warriors“ vyčnívají nad zbytek, ale to je dost málo. S tímto EP se díra do světa určitě neudělá.

METALLICA is coming to town later this summer. I'm not going but if I was and had a chance to ask James Hetfield a question it would be like this. "James, you use to play thrash a long time ago, so what do you think about bands from all over the world playing thrash as if it was still 1984?" Chances are he'd call security to haul my belligerent ass away.
Now with that said it's a fact that in other parts of the world thrash is still a vibrant force. Case in point here we have the debut release by Serbia's JUDGEMENT. Even though it's just a five song release it packs a lot of punch and contains more excitement then some full lengths I've heard this year. They're not a traditional thrash act. In fact they mix in plenty of classic true metal overtones which I love. Their song "Metal Warriors" sounds like it should've came out in 1982 instead of 2018.
JUDGEMENT are a five piece act, (two guitarists, bass player, drummer and a singer who can wail as well as push real guy vocals.) Their songs are up with the times, for example "Slaves of Technology". The band also delves into more philosophical lyrical territory. Add to that they also know how to layer in some modern progressive elements, fine melodic soloing along with galloping riffs. I believe they like IRON MAIDEN as well as some Euro power metal acts. A very good start.
