Album Review: Act of Defiance – Birth and the Burial

R-7375955-1440150647-3346.jpegFor some reason, I was lost on the vocals the first time I heard Act of Defiance on YouTube.  Now that I have had the album experience blasted through my skull, the vocals are stronger and more complimentary than I remember.  After listening to Birth and the Burial, it leaves me to believe that Broderick and Drover were looking to play something much heavier than were authorized on Super Collider, their last effort with Megadeth before moving on.  If you are a fan of early Big Four-era thrash then Act of Defiance should interest you greatly.  With a vibe that reminds me of classic Testament and Exodus, there is no shortage of tight riffs, guitar solos and pure, raw thrash appeal.  3.75 out of 5.
