6 Under-Appreciated Classics Of German Thrash Metal (Part 2)

It's not all about Sodom, Kreator and Destruction you know!

3. Protector – A Shedding Of Skin (1991)

Approaching the genre in a similar way to Brazil’s Sarcofago on their The Laws Of Scourge masterpiece, Protector’s A Shedding Of Skin experimented wildly with daringly diversified dynamics and pacing while still remaining resolutely committed to stripping skin from bone!

Barring a few moments of slower-paced bruising on tracks such as “Death Comes Soon” and “Thy Will Be Done” this blasts harder than ten-tonnes of dynamite down a mine-shaft and should be as revered as a progressive death/thrash masterpiece.

If Testament’s dalliances with death metal on the underrated Demonic caused you to suffer from involuntary liquid explosions then A Shedding Of Skin will require you to be hospitalised with dehydration; death/thrash has arguably never been executed better!

Liked that? Try this: Protector’s The Heritage was a worthy follow-up; proving that thrash still had something to say in 1993, even amidst the dominance of grunge!
