Heaven is for Sale


Wardance came a little late onto the thrash scene and released this album in 1990. Their sound harkens back to earlier '80s thrash and in my opinion has a real UK anarcho-punk feel to it, which is kind of weird since they are from Germany. The lead guitar work is very memorable on this and the female vocalist flat out rules laying down some great harmonies in her uniquely hoarse style. It gets melodic in parts mainly because they aren't afraid to slow it down. There's one or two tracks I could do without, especially the cover song (but that's just me). The good stuff on this album more than makes up for its few shortcomings.
