John Ricci, In the last few years it's become somewhat of a trend for classic rock, metal and thrash bands to re-record older material with their newer line-ups.
Testament , Anthrax , Twisted Sister , Exodus , Sodom , among many others, have all released similar recordings. Exciter were one of the earliest speed metal bands on the scene.
Their early albums, while being historically important and considered classics among metal enthusiasts, were not properly recorded and generally have very poor sound quality. That fact alone is good reason to re-record some of these songs. The production is, of course, much improved over the original recordings for the most part. There is much to be said about atmosphere, and those early recording with the original line-up can never be replaced. It's still cool to hear some of these songs with a proper recording.
For the most part, the songs chosen are the faster songs. The biggest obstacle that most longtime fans will have to overcome is not hearing Dan Beehler's signature howl on these songs. He most certainly had a charm and charisma that were all his own. Jacques Belanger is a good vocalist and has a high voice that sounds Halford -esque at times.
He is probably a better singer technically and he does an oustanding job here, but as I already stated, there is something about those original recordings that can never be replaced. These tracks are good as well, proving that Exciter have always flew their metal flag high and proud, even during the musically depressed 90's. However, those original recordings weren't bad at all and didn't really need re-recording. Nothing was included from Unveiling the Wicked or the self titled album.
They are also one of Canada's champions of heavy metal, along with Annihilator and Anvil. You wont' hear even the slightest hint of more modern influences in this one. For the most part, the songs are all pretty fast paced, with the exception of the lengthy "Crucifixion", which takes a slightly less manic, mid-tempo approach. Still songs like "Massacre Mountain", "Demon's Gate" and the title track are sure to please long time fans.
Even the recording is old school, sounding very raw and almost "live". Founding member and vocalist Dan Beehler will always be missed.
His voice and charisma were a large part of what I liked about Exciter. However, new vocalist Kenny Winter has a similar high, shrill voices although he isn't an exact clone either.
The band were outstanding on stage and very cool and down to earth off the stage. They watched the other band's performed, hung out and talked with the other bands and fans, signed autographs, etc. It's amazing how seeing a band live can make you appreciate an album even moreso than you did before seeing them. That is certainly the case with "Thrash Speed Burn".
