Terror 2000

Faster Disaster (Nuclear Blast)
by Martin Popoff

For those who want a little old Soilwork with your new Soilwork in the year 2002, look no further than this second record from Speed Strid's vicious side dish Terror 2000. Aside from Speed's slashing vocal attack, one instantly notices the racing riff work of Nick Sword and Klas Ideberg (Darkane), as well as the blinding steel of the production, a meticulous mix that is the only way to go for such Crown-accelerated Swedish thrash mania. Best riff goes to closer "Killing Machine," which switches between double-time, half-time and, er, time. New drummer Erik Thyselius stokes the engine room throughout with over-the-shoulder throwing fills amongst the blurry, blazing carnage, providing the framework for a record that, even though fueled by booze and racing cars, is a technical triumph that impresses with each flurry of flailing limbs.
