Title - 'The Subversive Kind'
Artist - Deliverance
For those not in the know, Deliverance is an American Christian thrash metal band which later shifted more towards heavy metal and progressive metal.
Founded by Jimmy P. Brown II in 1985, many members have either stayed in the line-up for a number of years, or left and returned. That said, Jimmy P. Brown II has been the only constant member of Deliverance.
Released February 23rd, 2018 via Roxx Records and 3 Frogz Records, the brand new Deliverance album The Subversive Kind was unleashed worldwide - and having listened to it twice through now, I can emphatically confirm it is well worth the money you will invest in it, trust me!

Bill Bafford of Roxx Records had this to say about the new release: "We are very excited to once again be partnering with 3 Frogz and Deliverance to bring you this awesome new thrash release. The fans that have been requesting a 'Weapons Part 2’ will be ecstatic with this new release and I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this new album is the bands Reign in Blood."
Chock full of fast, pounding, speeding train riffs, blazing leads and solos, and furious drumming, from the very first track 'Bring 'Em Down,' you instantly know who is playing and what you're in for ... and the almighty thrash ride attached to it, of course!
And therein tells the tale of The Subversive Kind: fast and furious thrash at its very finest which their dedicated and hardcore fans will absolutely adore.
With a bass line hook that permeates perfectly throughout, and Jimmy P. Brown II's prime vocalizations, at times, barking the delivered lyrics across, Deliverance don't put a foot, or guitar lick wrong here.
Being that this is their eleventh studio album, Southern California’s Deliverance know exactly what they had to do to keep their musical mantra alive with their fans.
Hence, The Subversive Kind features eight tracks at just over 30 minutes and, unsurprisingly, marks a return to the blast-beat thrash of their first three albums.
Also, The Subversive Kind can be found on Vinyl and Digital formats, with the vinyl actually being a Limited Edition pressing of only 500 pieces.
Furthermore, the vinyl variations include 100 on green vinyl that was exclusive to campaign backers, 150 red vinyl and 250 black vinyl.
This CD version is packaged in a jewel case with 8 panel insert.
