Human Wreckage

     
         
         
         
             
             
D.A.M. are a thrash metal band from the UK, formed in 1988. Their debut album, Human Wreckage, was released in 1990 with a second album, Inside Out released in 1991. In 2012 Human Wreckage was re-released.    
             
With the rapid evolution of thrash metal during the late eighties, the early nineties saw a huge rise in new thrash metal bands. While only a few made it big, some made a big impact before either disbanding or disappearing into obscurity as grunge came forth. D.A.M. were of these bands.    
             
Their debut album was a cracking slice of thrash metal, opening with the huge riffing, high tempo 'Death Warmed Up' with its catchy chorus, excellent guitar sound and powerful vocals. 'Killing Time' and 'Left To Rot' pound and chug away relentlessly, sounding like Anthrax mixed with (early) Metallica. An acoustic passage introduces the six minutes plus 'Prophets Of Doom'. Dynamic time changes and heavy melodies make 'Prophets Of Doom' one of the highlights on the album.    
             
'Terror Squad' is a thunderous thrash metal song, 'Total Destruction' is a raw brutal chug with 'Infernal Torment' another six minutes plus epic, again full of time changes, heavy melodies and cleaner vocals than heard so far on the album. Closing the album is the title song 'Human Wreckage', a foot stomping romp of a song and the fastest song on the album.    
             
Overall, a solid album of thrash metal with a cracking guitar sound and heavy melodies.
