Spit or swallow
Counterignition is a Trash Metal band from Kovin/Serbia. This band exists since 2006 and till now they recorded two demos and the album “Spit or swallow” back in 2009 and it’s now released. Now they signed with DDN Records and released it finally. On this album are 11 songs and they are all between 3 and 8 minutes long. 8 minutes can be a long playtime for a Trash Metal song, but these longer songs are not boring in anyway. They need the time to fully show their potential. Counterignition mixes the best parts from bands such as Pantera, Slayer and Megadeth with their own style. Sometimes, some kind of folk music can be found in the songs. Some of their songs are very good and have something new to offer. They are not the regular kind of Trash Metal band which make only noise. “Border” is a good example of their good ideas they have. I am not picking this song out of the list as an only good idea in the whole album. Every song here has some new ideas too. “Lawless” is maybe the best example when it’s up to the fresh ideas. Some of the guitar lines in this song sound a little bit folk in them. Some other song here have also quiet a potential to be a hit. “Life sentenced” is the longest song on this record, but the length of it doesn’t border the potential of this song to be a hit. I can’t say that there is a weaker song on this album, but these tow songs are the best songs for me on this album. If you like Trash Metal and you got tired of these normal Trash bands, than I would recommend you this album.
