Style - Blackened Death/Thrash Metal

" Formed in the summer of 2006 in Bergen, Norway, this group of talented musicians have members from legendary bands like ‘Old Funeral’, ‘Grimfist’, ‘Taake’ and ‘Borknagar’ to name a few. Their spirit and hunger is based on their passion for that old 80’s death/thrash metal feel "

" This album is a Thrash Metal kick in the teeth, a reflective burst of Tankards steely angst and Destructions lacerating vocal gurgle. The whole musical experience here is high octane; head banging retro thrash with a modern punch. Of the eleven numbers here you will discover a wide range of tempos and solid guitar arrangements. Stud Bronson’s vocals rasp away like a chainsaw and there are some tasty solo's also "

This is a must for fans of ‘Desaster’, ‘Destruction’, and early ‘Sodom’. It is a classic barrage of extreme dirty death/thrash metal from the 80’s but with a modern approach....So grab a beer and give these guys a listen for a thrashing good time !

Fist Raising And Downright Dirty !......Get It!
