STRUCK BY LIGHTNING
TRUE PREDATION
TRANSLATION LOSS

Ohio’s Struck By Lightning amps the anger up considerably on their sophomore 10-track affair TRUE PREDATION. Mercilessly attacking with undeniably awesome d-beat fury (“Funereal”), this quartet all but abandons its progressive metal roots for a discernibly more direct down and out approach meshing the blunt force of Gothenburg metal with a misanthropic hardcore vibe permeating through every blackened melody (“Mindfucker”). Dominated with lyrical hopelessness and despair (“We Are All Just Rotting Corpses”, “Stalk and Prey”), Struck By Lightning display a tried and true formula of ferocity containing a winning blend of chaotic crust and oppressive hardcore metal that deviates very little from influences ranging from Napalm Death to Venom to Entombed yet delivers the goods with the seething aggression of the aforementioned. -Mike SOS
