Over the course of time, certain lyrical contents have become synonymous with certain metal sub genres. So when talking about a German thrash / speed metal band, it is highly likely that they draw inspiration from the great war. And such is the case with the self titled debut of Division Speed. On paper, this album is right up my alley, as I enjoy reading the likes of Alistair Mclean. Unfortunately in this case, the lyrical themes alone are not enough to captivate my attention. The music here is a throwback to the old school Teutonic thrash styles and in many ways it ends up being too familiar.
