When you listen to this album, it will engulf you and smash your head into a wall, repeatedly. That's what this band did to me, and made me want to boogie a little. This 4 piece band is badass, brutal & most of all...VERY creative. Awesome songwriting, killer vocals and great sounding guitars and bass. The drummer shows in his skills that not all thrash/death metal bands need to have blast beats. Vermin, coming all the way from Beyruth Germany with their debut entitled Paradise will prove to the world of their kick ass talent. You won't hear any clean vocals in this band, but the mid range screams are very impressive. Vermin can shred you a new asshole if you don't watch it, so if you don't own fucking should! Brace yourselves as this is their debut, and for being just that...this is an album and band to look out for. With small spots with clean guitar sounds, and phenomenal leads, this band really has it going for them. If you don't own the album Paradise, it's a must have for your collection. Trust me, I wouldn't bullshit about a band that has super awesome talent such as Vermin. So far, I've listened to this album a total of 12 times, and each time I listen to it, it just gets better. I am certain that this band will rise to always get better in their journey with music. For being their debut album, Paradise deserves a 5/5 stars just by how they are capable and knowing how to compose songs that are catchy, brutal and most of all...VERY impressive. Below, I posted the video for the song Empty Eyes. That is the 3rd track on Paradise. So, if you don't own this by better try to find a way and get it. This German band will surprise you with pinched harmonics and Pentatonic scales and many other things that will make the headbanging start and then stop and so on so forth. Also, may I include that when I introduce to my brother new music that is in the metal world, 95% of the time I'm told to turn it off, but in this instance...he actually liked it a lot. Too bad he won't be contributing to this review like I had thought he might, but maybe some other time.  To me, this is a strong combination of thrash metal, death metal and a bit of classic rock with a small pinch of funk. Well, that's it this time you headbanging metal fans, keep it real, keep it metal and most of all...KEEP THOSE HORNS UP!! \m/-_-\m/ EVILVENGEANCE666
