If you put every heavy metal cliché in an Eppenmayer flask and let everything incubate for 48 hours you will get “Written Destiny” from Children of Technology. There’s nothing new but it’s a nasty joyful ride in a thrashy heavy metal theme park.
Singable melodies over midtempo stomping riffing and triplet grooves are the ingredients and sometimes there is nothing more you need. Grab a cold beer and a shot of the liquor of your choice and let the ride begin. It would be a nice party game to guess the origin of the songs. Also playable via Webbex or Zoom. For example “The New Barbarians” is an Anthrax classic, but I don’t want to reveal too much. There is just one thing you will miss from a very thrashy band that pays tribute to the great ones from the 80s and 90s era, a long extended guitar solo. Mainly the melodies come from the lyrics or the rhythm section.
The second have of the record is definitely much better than the first one. The riffs have more shifts and feeling. Overall the songs are far more catchier. This doesn’t mean the first half isn’t good but the second one is much more exciting.
If you’re looking for a funny and enjoyable ride through the lands of classic speed and thrash metal, Children of Technology is your pick.
