I know I said this in other previous reviews, but I'm a big fan of thrash metal genre. When I was a teenager and I started to listen to metal, thrash metal was one of the first genres I've ever heard since the very beginning of my metal path, so this album, perfectly played by Killer Souls, demonstrate that the essence of thrash metal is still alive out there and will make you headbang a lot.
Before I start with the review content, it's very rare that I can give a 100% score on any album I hear, independently of the genre, but I need to stand up and applaud the work that Killer Souls did here. I just fucking love this album! Let me tell you why.
First of all, I have to say that I listened to Killer Souls since their very first release and in the beginning, they know how to create high quality music, and especially, thrash metal, but "Reckoning" album is the clear evidence of their improvement as a band, everything here is just perfect. The recording, mastering and mixing work here was excellently done, you as a listener, will be able to hear every instrument without any effort from you and you can identify every note played by their very skillful musicians. Drums, guitars, bass and vocals can be heard in a perfect way here and no instrument is opaqued by another one or even the vocals, so I have to take my hat off and congratulate their job done in this release. Also, Edgar's voice, in my opinion, fits perfect in their music style, giving to the band a very powerful and "thrash" essence that makes you remember the thrash metal produced in the 90's but with an actual music like Warbringer or actual Kreator for example, which means the best thrash metal are not the "old school" one, the newer one is also a very good option to hear, especially with melodic riffs as "Reckoning" album, even though if you're more familiarized with the thrash produced in the past.
In terms of their music as a general, every song is very well composed and have powerful riffs that will make you headbang at least once, but I'm pretty sure it'll be more than once. I bet that if you take away the voice and just listen to the music and I tell you "Hey, have you heard the new Kreator's song?" I'm pretty sure you'll say this is Kreator song as a first impression. Also, every musician here is skillful enough to play a well done thrash metal. Additionally, the solos are very clean and you can distinguish every note from them as well as the harmonized ones that gives to the band a very unique style that sounds actually pretty good.
Finally, if you like thrash metal as much as I do, "Reckoning" is more than recommended. In a personal opinion, you MUST have this one. Why? C'mon, this is just a very well done thrash metal and you will be not disappointed by this album. This will give you enough faith in actual thrash metal and I have to say that I cannot recommend you just one or two songs from this album because all songs are just perfect, but "There's Nothing Without Blood", "Reckoning" and "The Unborn" (this last one my personal favorite) are my recommendations. If you're reading this and you haven't heard this album yet, what are you waiting for? Go to bandcamp or support the band by purchasing their album, it'll worth it, believe me.
