F5 - The Reckoning (2008)

Artist : F5
Country : USA
Release : The Reckoning
Year : 2008
Genre : Heavy Metal
File Type : mp3 320


Dave Ellefson (formerly of Megadeth) took a few years to find his post-‘deth place in the metal arena. With the second full-length album from F5, he has found it. While the initial draw to F5 for many metal fans is clearly Ellefson’s Megadeth pedigree, “The Reckoning” is not the second movement of the “Symphony of Destruction.” While there are some 1980’s metal and thrash influences, the record takes Ellefson far away from Megadeth. And as such it should be judged on its own merits. The entire album is filled with strong, and more importantly, tight songwriting. The breakdowns are crunchy, the bass rolls, and the guitars are flashy but not overdone. The title track is a perfect example of the band’s strengths. Ellefson and Jimmy DeGrasso (drums, formerly Y&T, Suicidal Tendencies, Alice Cooper, Megadeth) lay down a complex yet easily head-bangable beat.
