Lethal biography
LETHAL are an American progressive power metal act ( US styled) formed in 1982 in Hebron, Kentucky. The band was formed by the Cook brothers Eric ( guitars) and Glen ( Bass). The bandīs original drummer was Adrian Powers while Tom Mallicoat took care of the vocals in the band. The lineup was completed by Dell Hull on guitars. The first release by LETHAL was the 1987 "Arrival" demo. The band then scored a record deal with Metal Blade Records and released their debut full-length studio album "Programmed" in 1990 ( with new drummer Jerry Hartman). Guitarist Dell Hull left LETHAL shortly after the release of "Programmed" and started working for a company in California who made album cover designs. Dell Hull had designed the cover artwork for "Programmed".

LETHAL recruited new guitarist David McElfresh to replace Dell Hull. It would be five years before another official release by the band would see the light of day. The "Your Favourite God" EP was released by Massacre Records in 1995. The band released their second and for now last full-length studio album "Poison Seed" in 1996. The album was released by Massacre Records. Shortly after the release of that album LETHAL split up. They reunited in June 2006 and are hoping to release more music sometime in the future.

LETHALīs inclusion in the Prog Archives database was approved by the Progressive Metal Team. Fans of classic progressive metal acts like FATES WARNING, QUEENSRYCHE, CRIMSON GLORY and HEIR APPARENT should find a lot to enjoy here.

Your Favourite God
Lethal Progressive Metal

Review by UMUR
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars "Your Favorite God" is an EP release by US progressive/power metal act Lethal. The EP was released through Massacre Records in 1995 and bridges the gap between the bandīs debut and second full-length studio albums "Programmed (1990)" and "Poison Seed (1996)". Thereīs been one lineup change since the debut album as guitarist Dell Hull has been replaced by David McElfresh. The original version of the EP featured 5 tracks, while the 1997 reissue features the bonus track "Balancing Act".

The music on the EP continues the progressive US power metal style of "Programmed (1990)" but adds a more heavy and dark edge to the bandīs sound. Progressive metal had changed rapidly in the years between the bandīs debut album and "Your Favorite God", and while Lethal still sound like themselves (guitar/vocal driven progressive power metal rooted in 80s heavy metal), theyīve clearly also listened to the contemporary version of progressive metal and developed their own sound with it. Hard edged chugging riffs werenīt exactly the order of the day on "Programmed (1990)", but youīll find plenty here.

The musicianship is on a very high level, which is no surprise if youīre already familiar with "Programmed (1990)". Lead vocalist Tom Mallicoat is still a great asset with his high pitched singing style, but he is actually a bit more varied on this release using lower registers and a more raw singing style too. Lethal is a very sophisticated band in the way they arrange their tracks and in how they incorporate details, but structurally this is still pretty basic vers/chorus based tracks, with the rare excursion into more progressive territories. The first four tracks on the EP are heavy and dark, but "The Real", which closes the original version of the EP, is a power ballad type track, which is slightly lighter in mood.

"Your Favorite God" is a well produced release with a dark and heavy sound, which suits the heaviness of their "new" style well. While Iīm not completely sure that I prefer this new heavier progressive/US power metal sound to the more melodic US power metal style of Lethalīs debut album, I understand the need to change with the times and add some heaviness to their sound. Not that it did anything for them commercially, and artistically they still lack a 100% unique sound to elevate them to a higher level. Still a 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

4 stars "Programmed" is the debut full-length studio album by US, Hebron, Kentucky based progressive/power metal act Lethal. The album was released through Metal Blade Records in October 1990. Lethal was formed by the Cook brothers Eric (on guitars) and Glen (on bass) in 1982 and after a couple of lineup changes and the release of the 1987 "Arrival" demo, they got signed to Metal Blade Records for the release of "Programmed". A promotional video was released for the "Immune" track.

The music on "Programmed" is a guitar/vocal driven type of progressive power metal, not far removed from the 80s releases by acts like Fates Warning, Crimson Glory, and Queensrĸche. In addition to the artists mentioned above Iīd also add a slight Iron Maiden influence when describing the music.

The 10 track, 46:54 minutes long album is loaded with well written material. Each track is intricate, relatively catchy, and melodic yet heavy when that is called for. Lead guitar themes and solos are a major part of the bandīs sound as well as a tight and well playing rhythm section. Itīs mostly the very high pitched vocals and ornamented vocal melodies by Tom Mallicoat, which are in focus. With a vocalist like that fronting the band itīs nearly impossible to focus on anything else when he sings. A passionate and very convincing vocal delivery throughout. The instrumental part of the music is also very well played and itīs clear from the opening notes of album opener "Fire in Your Skin", that weīre dealing with a professional and talented band.

I called the music progressive power metal above, but in this case the word "progressive" doesnīt mean complex song structures or demanding instrumental sections, but rather just that the compositions are quite intricate and played with a rare sophistication (although most tracks do feature some pretty demanding playing). When examined a bit closer most of the tracks are actually pretty regular vers/chorus structured.

Overall "Programmed" is a high quality debut release by Lethal, and while they never broke through commercially and is seldom mentioned as one of the seminal progressive power/heavy metal acts from those days, the album is still highly recommendable to fans of the genre. Definitely a high quality release deserving more attention. A 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.

Thanks to UMUR for the artist addition.
