t is hard to present audience with new trash metal material without being compared with The Big Four. However, the Trash genre itself took somewhat of a turn in the past decade. The songwriting and the melodic content became just as important as the mad riffage. One could say that it had a resurgence of sort all over the world, but the scene in continental Europe is the one that certainly stands out. Likes of Sodom and Kreator had a huge following and influence over the years, with younger acts stepping in the trash metal fold. One of them most certainly are Comaniac, a Swiss four-piece. On their latest release 'Instruction For Destruction', Comaniac tend to remind us of their American influences, but they also show a European side to their music as well.

Instruction For Destruction certainly improves upon it's predecessor 'Return To The Wasteland', by placing further emphasis on melodic side of things. Album gives an old school feeling right away, and further builds on it with layers of interesting (and more contemporary) musical ideas. Intricate dual-guitar work, coupled with tight and straightforward drumming makes for engaging listening experience. Powerful vocals (at times reminiscent of Testament's Chuck Billy) deliver what it takes to make a compelling statement. Agressive, yet accesible. One of the few gripes I have with this album is singer's German accent, which can be a bit off-putting at times. Considering recent trends in the genre, showing more variety would probably take Comaniac to the next level.
Album as a whole works very well. It clocks at around 47 minutes, and it's just right. Song order provides nice dynamics as Instruction For Destruction manages to be consistent without being repetitive. It grows on you with every new listening, but it lacks in instantly memorable choruses. From guitar-based standpoint, Comaniac really deliver with complex solos that not only improve upon every song, but are also diverse and tehnically impressive. Production is pretty decent, and not too polished which benefits the record.
Instruction For Destruction is hardly revolutionary, but it never seems like it's meant to be like that. If you prefer bands like Anthrax, Megadeth or Exodus, Comaniac provide just that, with a little bit of European flavour. Definitely a band with potential to grow.
