4.0 out of 5 stars Thrash on!, March 22, 2009

This review is from: Thrash (MP3 Music)
'Brilliant' is not strong enough a word to describe the original work of Nash the Slash, and neither is 'original', in fact. THRASH first appeared in the eighties, so I feel like some musicological holdover writing about 'industrial noise' and the use of synthesizers in general. But this is to typical Eighties music as Cole Porter is to the 'Great American Songbook -- considerably deeper and several shades more interesting in texture than the work of most of his contemporaries. (Phil Collins and Howard Jones aren't really one man bands; Nash is.)

Tapping into a certain macabre vein in order to make subtle social commentary about the Canadian economy (or perhaps recession throughout the Western Hemisphere), Nash the Slash is definitely capable of protest music -- but he's rather cerebral (if not cynically detached) when speaking his mind, letting a quote from an obscure volume called 'The Law of Civilization and Decay' sum things up for him in the end. Thinking person's 'thrash' music, complete with sound effects and reverb ('Theory of the Black Hole') whenever rhetorically necessary. And, boy, are we talking powerful rhetoric.
