Killing Addiction – Omega Factor – Reissue Review

Addicted to it!

This reissue, courtesy of those fine folks over at Xtreem Music, celebrates the 30th anniversary of this cult debut album from legendary Floridian death metal band, Killing Addiction.

Hailing from Florida – always a good sign when talking death metal – Killing Addiction sprang to life way back in 1988 and their debut full length album, Omega Factor, was a lethal killing machine which combined grind, thrash and death metal to thrilling effect.

With the kind of death-thrash riffs that Malevolent Creation used to (and still do) excel at – alongside the kind of intricate solo’s Uncle Chuck introduced into Death’s repertoire circa Spiritual Healing onwards – there was always an enjoyably clean and crisp sound to Killing Addiction’s brand of death metal.

And, while the brutality was clear to hear, so was that all important groove; relentless savagery laced with an old-school energy and catchiness that demanded neck-snapping head movements of the most furious kind!

Omega Factor remains a pivotal releases from the golden era of death metal. 8/10

Killing Addiction‘s Omega Factor was reissued on 14th December, 2023.
