LETHAL AGGRESSION Ad Nauseum

"Ad Nauseum" is the 2nd full-length studio album by US, New Jersey based crossover act Lethal Aggression. The album was released through Horror Pain Gore Death Productions in January 2009. Lethal Aggression formed as far back as 1985 and released their debut full-length studio album "Life Is Hard-But That's No Excuse" in 1989. They disbanded in 1991, but reunited again in 2001.

The music on "Ad Nauseum" is crossover thrash metal/hardcore in the harder edged end of the spectrum. There are tracks and sections on the album, which remind me slightly of early Suicidal Tendencies, but other than those moments, "Ad Nauseum" is a very raw and aggressive release, featuring a pretty dark and pissed off atmosphere, so these guys have not taken the "beer and party" route, generally opting for a more serious social/political agenda. That doesn´t hinder the less serious lyrical topic to pop up now and again, but it´s not the main focus on this album.

The band is very well playing and occasionally play some very fast thrashy riffing and rhythms although there´s always a hardcore edge to the proceedings. Aggression is in the high seat, which is helped further along by the vocals on the album, which are really raw and delivered with fierce conviction. The material on the 13 track, 38:04 minutes are generally well written and relatively varied for the genre, and actually quite a bit more sophisticated than what is usual for crossover releases. You´ll find plenty of tempo changes and even guitar solos on the album. As a bonus the band have added a hidden track on the album featuring a full live set recorded in 2003 at CBGB's. The sound quality is actually pretty decent, and fully showcase what a powerful sounding act Lethal Aggression also are in a live setting.

"Life Is Hard-But That's No Excuse" was quite an enjoyable crossover album when it was released, and Lethal Aggression definitely hasn´t lost any of their punch or passion for playing music in the years between their debut and sophomore album, because "Ad Nauseum" is to my ears an even better release than the debut was, and certainly a step up in quality both when it comes to the musicianship, the songwriting, and the sound production. The latter is dark, heavy, and very powerful sounding. It may not be a full 4 star (80%) rating but a 3.5 - 4 star (75%) isn´t the worst rating either.

"Life Is Hard-But That's No Excuse" is the debut full-length studio album by US crossover act Lethal Aggression. The album was released through Funhouse Records in 1989.

21 furiously fast-paced (and occasionally mid-paced and more groove oriented) crossover tracks distributed over a 27:04 minutes long playing time. It doesn´t take a mathematical genious to figure out that these tracks are short and to the point. The longest track on the album is a mere 2:04 minutes long. Crossover to the bone. Crossover is usually on the thrashy side of things or on the more hardcore punked side of things and I´d say that the music on "Life Is Hard-But That's No Excuse" is on the hardcore punked side of the fence. Sometimes reminding me of the 1983 debut album by Suicidal Tendencies. I wouldn´t say the quality is as high as on that album though and by 1989 this wasn´t exactly revolutionizing either. In fact if you take into account that "Life Is Hard-But That's No Excuse" was released in 1989 it sounds a bit old fashioned. Also the sound production sounds a bit dated. That of course shouldn´t take away from the fact that this is a really enjoyable and at times powerful crossover release. The musicianship is decent too. A 3 star (60%) rating is warranted.
