Master – ‘The New Elite’

Master – ‘The New Elite’ [3 out 5]

Pulverised Records

When a band has been around as long as Master and is yet to disappoint through their bulging discography, it’s definitely a case of respecting your elders. The ten-strong predecessors of ‘The New Elite’ have always been consistent when it comes to their old school death metal sound and despite some production enhancement, the raw riffs are still reminiscent of fellow Americans Death or Massacre. Despite several line-up changes, vocalist Paul Speckmann has been the core of the underrated band and his gurgling throat creates for a unique and sheer change from the usual low growls, suiting their political aggression perfectly. ‘Remove the Knife’ alone is enough evidence to charge Master of being guilty for doing what you know best.
