Nuclear Assault – “Survive” (1988)

Nuclear AssaultWith the pedal perpetually to the metal, New York’s Nuclear Assault attacked with restless and relentless ferocity on the frantic Survive.  Somewhere behind the digestible east coast thrash for-the-masses of Overkill and Anthrax, there was Nuclear Assault’s less accessible, but very enjoyable thrash (with a crossover touch).  Street style mayhem done right.  Survive is a fun album of fast thrash with a few sneaky hooks here and there.  It definitely gets better with repeated listens.  Sure, the singer’s voice falls on the wrong side of weasel, but he’s all we’ve got.  I dig Brainwashed and Survive.  My score: B
