ABOUT THE ALBUM

ULTIMATUM is a metal band from New Mexico whose sound is a mixture of traditional heavy, power/speed/thrash metal and more modern grooves; brutal guitars, blazing leads, pounding drums, thundering bass and shrill, shrieking vocals. Ultimatum does not claim to follow any trends nor do they wish to do so. Ultimatum is great at writing good, heavy, memorable metal songs and has been doing this since their 1992 beginnings!

Lex Metalis (Latin for "Metal Is Law") is the band's fifth full-length release and follow up to the destructive metal monstrosity Into The Pit (2007 Retroactive). With Lex Metalis, the band pays tribute to their metal heroes, putting their neck snapping, heart-of-metal stamp on some of the most cherished metal anthems! As always, the band stays true to their metal convictions, playing each song with power, might and authentic conviction. Vocalist (and author of ) Scott Waters, shows considerable influence from the likes of David Wayne, Roger Martinez and Blitz Ellsworth (and Cronos and King Fowley on the high, gritty - and sometimes slurred parts). The band's DNA is pure thrash metal and every song has their thrash and speed metal imprint - even the 80's melodic metal tracks! In addition, the eight page booklet contains detailed liner notes explaining why the band chose these songs for this classic release that is destined to appeal to old and new fans!

REVIEW Ultimatum "Lex Metalis"
Retroactive Records Since it's formation in 1992, New Mexico's Ultimatum has been steadfast in it's pursuit of the Metal Dream. This is one of those bands that lives, eats and breathes Heavy Metal on stage and off. For it's fifth full length studio release, the band has chosen to pay homage to some of it's heroes and ours...yes, boys and girls, I give you a covers album - collective groan from the audience -. I know, I know. These types of albums have been called everything from lazy to a quick cash in...sometimes both. But Ultimatum #1 - barely make any money anyway and #2 - are anything but a lazy band so we go. Ultimatum is known primarily as a Thrash Metal band. Yet, over time the band has allowed it's classic Heavy Metal roots to come through in it's music much like Deceased has done. Thus, we find a varying combination (for Metal) of covers from bands like Overkill, Judas Priest, Vengeance Rising, Quiet Riot, Metal Church, etc. with no single style taking the lead. The band does manage to put its own stamp on the songs without rendering them unrecognizable. A few that fit like a glove would be "Ton Of Bri...
