Vio-Lence - Oppressing The Masses 1990. To favorites 5 Download album. Listen album. Massively influenced by Bay Area Thrash legends Exodus, by 1988 Vio-Lence had already released Eternal Nightmare a promising debut which featured the pile driving Serial Killer and Kill on Command. But when the band's label Mechanic went bust shortly thereafter, the act would join the ranks of Jon Zazula's Megaforce for the release of their sophomore follow-up, Oppressing the Masses in 1990. Well this review is about an album called ăOppressing The Massesă and it was made by a band which is currently now inactive but on the move and that band is called Vio-Lence. This album is a some kind of follow-up to their great debut album ăEternal Nightmareă. this album does not contain the same material but it is very close though. I have never described the band members in detail before so this would be a good opportunity to do that don't you think Okey, I will start with the vocalist Sean Killian, an average thrash metal singer with an own unique singing voice. It is unique when y. Vio-lences Oppressing the Masses doesnt excel at the same level that Eternal Nightmare did on terms of thrashing your neck until it breaks. Yeah, it goes at a faster pace, but the riffs themselves seem less interesting and somewhat simpler. This makes getting past Sean Killians jabber all the harder and when you do manage to listen past that, what you get isnt as engaging and even more of the album flies by you. Nothing special happens, only a few riffs stick out, and Killian drives you crazy. Listen free to Vio-Lence Oppressing the Masses I Profit, Officer Nice and more. 8 tracks 41:27.
