Unfortunately, they confined all the good ideas in a few songs, and, as a matter of fact, probably only two tracks on here will surprise you, if you’re expecting the ordinary revival thrash album. In this sense, Submission for Liberty is yet another safe, well produced bridge that spans the Pacific Ocean and links the chains between Australia and The Bay Area. One of the best modern thrash bands imo and even better, they’re from my home town!

So for those expecting the next Exhorder or something, look elsewhere, as this is militaristic, mildly-engendering thrash metal that lifts more weight due to the production than the riff quality itself. After listening to Submission for Liberty I can say without a doubt that they belonged on that tour.


They got a new one coming out soon. I can 4arm submission for liberty either way concerning his standard shouting, but he does pull out a decent performance when the emanation of the music calls for a shift in tone. However, it is the lack in variety that brings this album down a notch.

A few riffs are really successful, and the solos are always melodic and with a shredding accent at times. Can’t say that I fully grasp the correlation between the band name and the subject matter, but 4Arm seem to be one of the current standouts in the modern Australian 4arm submission for liberty metal scene, right up there with Evile and Warbringer apropos of clinical, throwback-inclined procedures and beefy production values.
