4 stars Finally Mekong Delta entered the Archives!I've been waiting for this soooo long!This is my first review i'm sorry if it is plenty of errors but i had to write it! In my country this band is not so popular because everyone thinks it is a bad copy of Metallica, but it isn't. Mekong Delta are the masters of German prog-trash, i'd like to suggest them as a valid alternative to bands like Megadeth and Metallica but with a solid prog base. The rhythm part is carried superbly by Jorg Michael and Ralph Hubert, providing to Uwe Baltrusch a solid base on which he builds some of the most interesting riffs of the whole metal movement.Doug Lee sings in this wonderful record, his high screaming voice goes well with the music with some very well written lyrics about science fiction and the end of the world as we know it. The first track is a well built and organized madness of nearly 20 minutes, full of riffs and constantly changing his face to the listener.But this album worths its price for the last song....Modest Mussorgski 's Night on a bare mountain revisited in prog metal vein!Very very good.Unfortunately Mekong Delta's recods are not easily avaiable but this band is really worth!Go buy this!If u like prog metal and its origins this will be perfect....sorry again for the errors.
