CHAINBREAKER – Lethal Desire (CD, LP, TAPE) – Hells Headbangers

Sometimes brilliant, sometimes lackluster. What’s about this band?

Chainbreaker is a band from Canada with battle-tasted musicians from other ventures and they make thrash speed metal.

Hence the formula is complete, Canadian to the core, no frills and no quarter.

The problem here is a very simple one. They stick to a formula and for the sake of being cohesive, they don’t change it a bit. This is a very perilous code, because it works for some bands and for others, doesn’t.

In the case of Lethal Desire the answer is DOESN’T.

Not that it doesn’t have their moments: the earworm here for sure is Get Yer Feed that is rocker that is lethal to the core, perfect, well played and heavy! I loved this one.

Others like Chainbreaker, deliver, but don’t work as expected: There’s everything there, I mean it: but somewhat it’s unintelligent. There’s no riff that stays on the mind or a good chorus. If one listens to it, one might think: this song is okay, it’s a mix of Motörhead and Exciter. But try to spin it more than ten times for example: It doesn’t work, period.

Lethal Desire is not a BAD album. It’s actually good. It lacks creativity. Experienced musicians will always make a good work. But in this very case it sounded lazy: not in performance, no! They play like hell, they are fast, they are good. But they have everything to make a brilliant work, which I’m sure they will in their next chance.
