Chainsnap 3 song promo (2003) 13:14 - Reviewed by Nailer
1. God's Breath 2. Death By Deception 3. Wanted Soul
Chainsnap are listed in their band sheet as a five piece thrash band from Wisconsin, but the songs I heard on the promo were more rudimentary Sabbath than anything from the American thrash metal scene circa '86-'88. The musical breaks at around 3 minutes into the first and second songs do however bring some nice reminders of the old school rhythm-powered neck-snappers. I would have liked to have heard a bit more speed in the chorus' personally.
The guitars are a bit low in the mix, but there are enough chunky riffs to scare the local cows and churn their milk straight to cheese. Vocals are mixed between smooth verses and Pantera growling. I know a band in Tennessee and Georgia and one in all 50 states that sound like this. Not that that's a dig, mind you. Chainsnap are operating in the mines of metal where the ore is coarse, abundant and needs grinded by bands from all across the land. Toil, sweat and practice will get them to the next level.
