Mekong Delta

Mekong Delta is not only a riverbed in Vietnam but a progressive thrash band from Germany. This release is one of the weirdest thrash records I've heard and if you can't get down with clean metal vocals you might as well skip it. Your loss though. This stuff is undeniably remarkable and when the album gets going I really lose myself in all of its twists and turns. They are a technical band, but they don't overdo it. I've heard the Voivod comparisons but that ceases to go any farther than the fact that both bands play thrash and write songs that have sci-fi elements.
