Critical Solution are a band from Norway that plays a mixture of heavy and thrash metal and this is a review of their self released 2013 album "Evil Never Dies'.
"God Of Anarchy" begins with heavy guitar riffing and drums along with some powerful bass guitars and melodic riffs before going into a more fast old school thrash direction along with some melodic vocals that also have an aggressive edge to them and after awhile the music starts mixing in some mid paced sections and towards the end there is a brief use of guitar solos and leads coming in and out of the song.
"Sad Hill" begins with heavy guitar riffs and drums which also lead to some vocals kicking in and after awhile there are back up shouts getting added to the song and as the song moves on guitar solos and leads start making their way into the song along with some faster guitar riffing.
"Crime Of Passion" begins with some heavy and melodic thrash guitar riffing and drums and after a few seconds vocals start making their way into the song and a minute later there are some guitar leads that come in and out of the song along with some technical riffing and then the song starts slowing down in certain parts.

"Speed King" which is a Deep Purple cover begins with some hard rock/metal guitar riffs, classic rock vocals and drums along with some powerful bass guitars kicking in shortly after that and after a minute guitar solos and leads start coming in and out of the song.
'Killed by Death" which is a Motorhead cover begins with some mid 70s metal guitar riffs and drums which lead up to some guitar leads that come in and out of the song as well as vocals that are alot more clean sounding than Lemmy's and the song has a very catchy chorus and toward the end you can hear the bass guitars.
"Seek And Destroy" which is a Metallica cover begins with some guitar riffs and leads before the drums and bass guitars start kicking and a few seconds vocals make their presence known in the song and towards the end there are some guitar solos being utilized.
Song lyrics cover violence, war and anarchy themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy, old school and professional sound for being a self released recording where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the album.
In my opinion Critical Solution are a very great sounding hybrid of heavy and thrash metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE ''God Of Anarchy" "Wallace Green" "Dead Man Walkin" and "Killed By Death". RECOMMENDED BUY.
