RAMMING SPEED

Doomed To Destroy, Destined To Die

(Prosthetic Records)

Reviewed by : Kelley Simms
Rating : 7.0

Boston quintet RAMMING SPEED’s sophomore effort, Doomed To Destroy, Destined To Die, is a righteous blend of thrash, grind, hardcore and crossover metal. It’s like BLACK FLAG meets DRI by way of ’80s thrash. DTD,DTD is blessed with a whirlwind of furious riffs, blistering drumming, crusty rhythms, aggressive gurgling and a old school punk rock sensibility. The songs are short an’ sweet but some of them actually seem longer than the two-minute mark would lead you to believe. CD opener and title track begins with a SUICIDAL TENDENCIES-ish melodic intro which soon turns into a chugging slamfest full of hardcore vocal gruff and metallic fervor. You can hear the metal influences within its punchy riffs while the gang shout vocals give off that good ol’ American hardcore vibe. The aggressive and scratchy-style barking of Pete Gallagher can become a bit monotonous after awhile, but it’s actually the perfect fit for this style of music. ‘Hollow Giants’ is decorated with a doomy, slow-paced throbbing with chaotic drum fills and well-thought out twin harmonized leads played with emotion and purpose. This really could have been the CD closer as the actual final song, ‘Dead Flags,’ isn’t anything to write home about. Ramming Speed genre-mix its songs very well, but nothing really stands out as being very memorable because it all blurs by very quickly. There’s typically nothing wrong with this disc per se, but it’s just not very assuring that I’ll be listening to it weeks or even months down the road.
