CHILDREN OF TECHNOLOGY Written Destiny LP BLACK
All the more fitting, then, that CHILDREN OF TECHNOLOGY return to rule that wasteland with their third full-length, Written Destiny. The death squad firmly established by DeathLörd and Borys Crossburn (BARBARIAN) has seen the new entry of Dee Dee Altar (Bunker 66), thus shaping a power-trio in the most classic '80s way. And compared to the COT's already-considerable catalog, this Written Destiny dashingly and dangerously powers headlong into the '80s underground, more resolutely upping the METAL in the crusty equation and spitting out eight new anthems that are equal parts gleam and grime. It's almost as if the power-trio took their well-worn tank, scrubbed some of the rust off, and gave it an engine pumped full of nitrous; this album simply CHARGES! Not surprisingly, the band's influences this time around are squarely focused on early Onslaught, Warfare, Venom, Anti-Cimex, Nuclear Assault, and Sacrilege UK - but what results is 666% CHILDREN OF TECHNOLOGY, with a charisma that's undeniable, and undeniably their own.
