Inside Out

     
         
         
         
     
             
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 Inside Out was re-released.    
             
'Man Of Violence' opens the album, with an excellent guitar sound, heavy melodies and powerful vocals, continuing the standard set by the previous years debut. 'House Of Cards' is thunderous and atmospheric with a higher pitched vocal performance, 'Appointment With Fear' is less thrash and more traditional heavy metal sounding, but retains the same guitar sound. Their debut album may have had a massive Anthrax influence, but that has disappeared this time around and D.A.M. are forging their own sound.    
             
'Thought For A Day' is seven minutes long and is a slow pounding epic with dramatic time changes and a real heavy thumping rhythm. Also clocking in at over seven minutes is the atmospheric, almost dark and moody 'Winter's Tear'. 'The Innocent One' is punk tinged, 'My Twisted Mind' returns the album back to out and out thrash with screaming vocals while 'No Escape' has a lighter guitar sound but is still hard hitting and raw. It is clear that D.A.M. have progressed with their song writing and are showing signs of experimentation and maturity. 'Beneath Closed Eyes' ends the album in a blaze of dynamic time changes, blistering guitars and frenetic melodies.    
             
Overall, a progression from their debut, this album is full of matured thrash metal and experimentation.
