(7/10) I wonder if the world was waiting for this. A young thrash band from Saarbrücken, Germany covers Status Quo. Probably nobody missed this so far. On the other hand - why not?

Godslave dared to go for such an experiment. I wouldn't say that it's a 'must have', but the six tunes are also too good for getting dusty in the farest back of your CD rack.

Godslave mainly sticks to the original. Classics like "Caroline" and "Down down" sound a bit harder than the Quo version which gives the tunes more of a party vibe.

Going that much for the original approach is a missed opportunity, esp. since "Is there a better way" shows that the tunes can handle some harsher arrangements.

To conclude: good idea, good songs, good sound and too much on the safe side if life. More thrash would have been nice.
