I got into Trouble a number of years ago when music stations on digital cable were just becoming mainstream additions to the cable lineup. I head Flowers off of this album that fair day and loved the vibe it was given to me. I quested desperately to find their work, but sadly always came up empty until finally a few weeks ago i found some, and this album happened to be one of them.
First off, what an album! Brilliant guitarwork, thumping bass and steller drumming spotlights Trouble at their tightest and most well oiled lineup maybe ever…while the vocals are screechy sometimes, while other times they are blissfully melodic. Requiem is one of the most beautiful pieces of music that i have ever had the priviledge of listening to, and for that I am very happy that I found this band. The title track is very fun and heavy, and the covers of Carole King and the Beatles are both fun and inspired works that are almost worth the cost of finding this gem.
Trouble is a band that constantly got written off in the savage undertones of other thrash bands like Metallica and Megadeth and the doom metal godfathers like Candlemass because they combined the doomy atmosphere of Black Sabbath with the thrash virtuosic guitarwork of a thrash icon. If you are a new fan, keep looking until you find every album by this act. Trust me, you shall not be disappointed!
