Well, let the madness begin because this is one of these cases... I am a huge fan of Hellbastard's first LP, "Heading For Internal Darkness", I consider it one of the most important LP's of extreme music. When I first listened to it, 20+ years back, I was simply mesmerized! Shock and owe, one of the most powerful recordings along with Venom, Bathory, Amebix, Mayhem etc, I had the pleasure to experience! So amazing "Heading..." is. As you can understand, I was very eager to listen to the next Hellbastard LP. But someday... finally arrived.

"Natural Order" was a complete disgrace for a band that established (along with Amebix etc) that legendary british crust sound of late 80's. Now forget the crust megalith "Heading..." was, erase any crust relation from Hellbastard and prepare to be thrown in front of an amazing, yes, you read well, fast and technical thrash metal music of the finest quality!!! That happen to me just now, but everything happens for a reason. I was so pissed with Hellbastard back in the day "Natural Order" was released, that I refused with passion to listen to it again for the next 20+ years, that is until this day I'm writing this review! Yes, the crust lords committed suicide, but YES, long live the lords I say now, this is so fuckin' true! "Natural Order" is huge, and I mean it, huge in every aspect, it's a pure thrashing grenade blown in your face, and the only reminder of old Hellbastard is the vocals since the vocalist is the same. In fact, you will be constantly thinking "nooo, this ain't Hellbastard I knew, just can't be".

Their total change in music is so twisted, but yet so excruciating beautiful and excellent and in the same time a fuckin' disgrace for their past! Madness! The lunatics have taken over the asylum. Madness... yes! If the crust part of my brain takes control, I HATE this LP enormously, but when the thrasher kicks in, I absolutely love it with every sense of the word, took me 20+ years to realize! I only wished that Hellbastard remained as in "Heading..." LP and another band to have released "Natural Order". It's quite weird for me to have so contradicting feelings for a record but... my eureka of 2011 and as much bipolar as it can get! Enjoy fanatically...

5/5
