Review by Jason Houston: If you’re a fan of music that is 100% pure, extreme, aggressive, heavy, fist pumping… nothing but Metal then do yourself a favor and pick up the latest CD: “Operation Misdirection” by Italian thrashers Ultra Violence.
I think Ultra Violence is one band that could give THE Mighty SLAYER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! a run for its money, I mean all these songs are 100% full speed Metal and NOTHING but METAL! That’s right metalheads, If you love to bang your head, put your fist in the air, and love your music LOUD then this is the band for you!
Many of the songs on here sound alike but again everything is so brutal, loud, heavy, and aggressive that any true metalhead would love to have this album in their music collection ! I love the power house drumming and heavy riffage that is featured throughout the entire effort!
These guys may not have re-invented the wheel here but they are true defenders of the Metal faith very much like the legendary Judas Priest that came before them…I mean there’s no pop, radio friendly tunes or power ballads here and if you’re a Metal fan I think you’ll love listening to this collection of songs from start to finish! I must say that the track I enjoyed the most here is the band’s cover of the 80’s MTV hit from the band: Dire Straits “Money For Nothing”.
Now if you’re beginning to second guess me here after I said there was no radio/pop friendly tunes on the album and then you hear they cover a Dire Straits song that was a huge MTV hit back in the 80’s. Let me tell you this version of “Money For Nothing” sounds nothing like the Dire Straits version of the song….this is a real heavy, aggressive, extreme, pure metalized version of the song and Ultra Violence does a really great job of making it all their own.
In that having heard the original version myself I almost did not recognize the song and I just love the way Ultra Violence put their own metalized spin on this classic song!
