Powermad - The Madness Begins... (1988) Retail CD
Powermad is one of those bands that should have been big, or at least far more successful than they were. Their The Madness Begins... EP is a solid example of the band’s unappreciated talent and a generally memorable romp through underground 80’s thrash.
Heavy is the best word to describe this quick little EP. The distortion is quite scooped and modern for the time period and the drumming is pretty powerful. The opening riffs of “Terminator” are pretty cool and serve as a fitting prelude to the entire album. It’s generally as fast as it is heavy. Typical thrash metal, but unique enoughmore… to keep it interesting. The odd time yet killer riffing of “Hunter Seeker” serves as a prime example. The vocalist, Joel Dubay, is pretty good as well, with a broad range and great tone. His wailing starts to get a little old (especially on the last track), but his actual singing more than makes up for it. All of the songs are quality, one being a Ramones cover made far heavier, and there are no weak spots.
If you listen to a lot of thrash metal, chances are this won’t really blow your mind, but it makes for a decent listen anyway. It’s pretty cool for what it is and definitely worth hearing if you have the opportunity
