Prog Reviewer
2 stars I have to begin by saying that this one of those album that personally, I really enjoy but is certainly not a progressive album.

Rrr÷÷÷aaarrr is a purely thrash metal album. As if the album name wasn't metal enough, the music will remove any doubt. There is nothing progressive about this album, it is thrash metal to the core. Very fast paced, held together with thrash beats, and lots of double bass with blazing guitar solos sprinkled throughout.

There are some interesting things I noted about this album: The bass work is pretty good, and for thrash metal there is very little tremolo picking. Instead most of the guitar work are chords instead of pure tremolo picking. I rather like it. Gives the album a kind of frantic feel to it.

My personal favorite songs are: Slaughter in a Grave and Ripping Headaches, though I do like all the tracks on the album.

Overall, I really like this album. I'd personally give it 4 stars. However, this is a thrash metal work with no prog in it whatsoever. So for this site, I give this album a rating of: 2 stars.
