Country: Germany
Title: Mankind
Label: Fastball Music
Year: 2017
Style: Thrash Metal

Two years ago they released an album under the Steamhammer banner; not sure how good that went, but certain is the new album, their third, is out on a different label, Fastball, one of the fastest moving labels out there nowadays, so this might be a good new step for Fateful Finality. The band has been around since 2007, so we're dealing with an experienced combo, and this new album proves their somehow simplistic but full of catchiness mix of Heavy and Thrash Metal (with plenty of Groove all over) is made by a curdled team, the material sounds damn powerful and precise, it transmits the band's determination and self-confidence, you can actually imagine their live gigs through these 14 tracks (almost an hour of playing time). All tracks have at least a guitar hook to make them memorable, the vocals are more on a Groove Thrash path, angry and demanding, and the rhythm section is right on spot, with a metallic bass line that seems subtle at first but proves to be heavily decisive for the heaviness of the material as a whole. I think their live shows are pretty wild to say the least...
