TARGET - Mission Executed LP
"Mission Executed" is the debut full-length studio album by Belgian thrash metal act Target. The album was released through Aaarrg Records in 1987. ...and considering that we´re talking 1987 this is a really high quality technical thrash metal album. The lead vocalist has a raw voice but still sings with a melodic edge. While the music is technically well played, there are still enough straight forward thrashy riffing and rythms to ensure that head banger friendly power and groove is maintained. Artists like Artillery, Mekong Delta, Coroner and early Annihilator are at various moments in the music valid references. "Mission Executed" is an album that was a few years ahead of it´s time. You won´t find many technical thrash metal albums from 1987 of this high quality.
