This is the first of two albums released by Portland, Oregon's terribly under-appreciated Wehrmacht. While not as well produced as the follow-up, Shark Attack is more consistantly fast and the guitar work is more technical. Think early Megadeth with ultra-fast drumming and Kreator solos.

Wehrmacht was arguably the first band to be coined speed-core for this extremely fast metallic hardcore. Though their speedy crossover sound, technical guitar work, and campy lyrics were predated by the likes of S.O.D., Wehrmacht is definitely deserving of the speed-core badge. Napalm Death and other grindcore heavyweights consider them major influences.

The vocalist and guitarist went on to front the funky progressive grind band Spazztic Blurr. Drummer Brian Lehfeldt joined Cryptic Slaughter then the much more tame Sweaty Nipples.

This 2000 rerelease of the 1986 classic has been recorded from vinyl, so there is a slight hiss heard through the album and occasional popping. Still, it's far better than the old cassette! If Amazon doesn't have it in stock, check New Renaissance's website.

This LP was originally released in 1987 and is quite possibly the greatest thrash/speed record ever recorded. Though often mischaracterized as grindcore pioneers, Wehrmacht belts out 12 classic thrash tunes to the speed and intensity of a Terrorizer or Repulsion rhythm section. Labeled (appropriately stickered on the original LP, in fact) by New Renaissance to be "the fastest heavy metal band today," "Shark Attack" is actually not all that fast in the period's context. It is definitely no faster than Terrorizer or Napalm Death, possibly equivalent to the speed of Repulsion's old demos. The difference, though, is that this is not a grind record, it is pure thrash. (Think Megadeth's "Killing is my Business..." with the drums on 78 RPM!) The editorial review here also cites them as successfully mixing punk and metal, another common notion that is seen more clearly in hardcore/thrash crossover bands like Cryptic Slaughter, DRI, Siege and Septic Death. On "Shark Attack," Wehrmacht is definitely more metal than anything else. They did end up partnering up with Cryptic Slaughter, (who drummer Brian Lehfeldt joined for the Speak Your Peace record) and that may be where the confusion comes from, but if you can't hear the difference between a band playing really fast punk riffs and really fast metal riffs, you shouldn't even bother with this record. The second album, "Biermacht," is more highly produced and shows a little more hardcore influence on it, but the line is still fine.
Wehrmacht is definitely comparable to Cryptic Slaughter, Siege or a really fast Megadeth, but I personally think they surpass them all. The production on this record is similar to all of those bands, too; reverbed drums, heavily distorted guitars and basses, high-pitched, reverbed screams.

A few years ago, I had gotten into one of the most distinctive and original bands to ever grace the planet, Sweaty Nipples. The thing I absolutely loved about Sweaty Nipples was their ability to seamlessly blend punk, metal, industrial, grunge, and funk ... all while maintaining a homogenous sound of their own, but being that there won't be any new Sweaty Nipples material coming out anytime soon, once you've gotten all the available albums and EP's, what is one to do? At the time I did not even know what Wehrmacht was ... well you know how when you're on the internet, Windows Media Player c an look up any cd you put in, and you click that thing and it tells you all about the cd with the list of related artists at the bottom? That's where I found this name ... Wehrmacht. It was the only band under "Related Artists" for Sweaty Nipples. I clicked the name, not expecting much. Then I read a little on their bio, learning that Brian Lehfeldt was in Wehrmacht before he was in Sweaty Nipples, and described in some places as "the fastest band in metal." I figured it'd be an okay collectors item to have, as it was Sweaty Nipples-related ...

Upon first listen to "Shark Attack", all I got was the sensation of a barrage of noise. Sure, I'm a metalhead, and yes, thrash is my favorite form of metal, I like Blind Illusion, Artillery, Tourniquet, Megadeth, Sacrifice, Death Angel, Heathen, Testament, Kreator, and so on ... but when it comes to speed, Wehrmacht was blowing all these bands away. But the whole barrage of noise thing took some getting used to ... there was really only so much of Lehfeldt's bapbapbapbapbapbapbapbap drumming I could take before I had to turn it off. Then I began to realize something ...

Portland's WEHRMACHT put this album way back in 1987, in the thick of the thrash metal explosion of the second half of the 80's. The band plays a mixture of traditional thrash (Slayer, Metallica, Exodus) with the faster end of hardcore punk (D.R.I., Deep Wound, Septic Death, early Meat Puppets, early Hüsker Dü). The results are marvelous. Back in the day, many bands jumped on the thrash bandwagon by speeding up their songs and adopting a simpler, non-glam look. WEHRMACHT were in their late teens when they released this album and the youthful energy prevail through out. Although the band has claimed that the mix was not to their liking I happen to think otherwise. There's a lot of reverb, which renders the drums sounding HUGE. Most thrash bands at the time adopted a very compressed sound, specially on the drums. Not here. Thanx to the sometimes overwhelming reverb effect, the sound is intense and sinister, making some of the funnier songs sound dark and brooding. Brian Lehfeldt's drums are one of the highlights here. Up to this point, "Shark Attack" could've been easily the heaviest, fastest metal album ever put out, downsizing other intense thrash bands such as DARK ANGEL, KREATOR, SODOM and even the might SLAYER. While many critics tend to lump the band with the crossover genre, WEHRMACHT owes much of their style to thrash. The guitar work of Marco Zorich and John Duffy is technical and precise while Shannon Mortimer's rumbling bass sounds just as intense. Vocalist Tito Matos adopts a more hardcore punk approach with his singing style.
The album is intense from start to finish but some stand outs are "Jabberjaw", "Barrage Of Skankers", "Crazy Ways People Die" and the extremely intense title track.
If you missed WEHRMACHT back in the day, you'll do no wrong in purchasing this piece of thrash metal history!
