METAL FORCES ISSUE 37 MARCH 1989
With the expected interest in MORTAL SIN in the coming months, there’s sure to be a sudden interest in Australian thrash metal. And there’s no doubt dozens of bands are waiting in the wings for the door to open.
Well, one such band that could well be making their own headlines in the near future are ADDICTIVE, a Sydney based quartet who’ve recently released a highly promising five song demo entitled “Ward 74”.
Formed in November1987, and with a line-up of Greg (vocals/bass), Joe and Mick (guitars) and Matt (drums), ADDICTIVE are obviously influenced by the likes of METALLICA and especially TESTAMENT, and although the material isn’t mind blowing or particularly original, it is delivered with plenty of power, precision and conviction to suggest that they could well develop into a class thrash unit in time.
