Reabilitator - Global Degeneration

Ukrainian thrashers Reabilitator’s debut record ‘Global Degeneration’ is one of those records that just throbs with untamed teenage energy. It came out in 2012, but has seen a few rereleases through Metal Race Records in 2016. If you like old school thrash, this is for you.

Besides the Beavis and Butthead-esque album art, Reabilitator really hit the ground running here, with a rapid punky style of thrash that really kicks ass. Opener ‘Mechanical Devastation’ hits all the same points that Municipal Waste were going for, and even though we’re well past the neo-thrash revival, it shows that the style really isn’t over. The chugging start to ‘The End’ is seriously good, while the neck snapping speed of ‘New World Order’ is designed to get pits rocking. There’s rapid fire solos, headbanging gallops and vocalist Lololo has a great thrash yelp.

‘Global Degeneration’ is a strong if slightly raw debut record. Reabilitator have got the riffs and the songwriting skills, but they will definitely benefit from a thicker production. I look forward to checking out their newest record, ‘Social Programming’ too. If you like early Overkill, Sacred Reich and any of the newer old school thrashers like Municipal Waste or Gama Bomb, you’ll really like this.
