DÉTENTE - Decline [2010]

Detente returns after a two decade break with an extremely ferocious comeback! Fronted by new member Tiina Teal, Detente is as strong as ever. This is what all female fronted thrash metal bands should sound like, Tiina does such a great job displaying her vocal chops with this release, she is definitely the highlight of this album. The albums got a handful of tasty riffs but nothing mind blowing. The production is pretty killer, the raw feeling is very evident but doesn't get in the way at all. One of my new favorite 2010 releases, Detente's "Decline" presents itself as a raw and ferocious compilation of pure thrash.
