Raw and fast-tempo thrash metal from Denmark
Comments:
Man, I know you don't judge a book by it's cover but Mario Lopez's (Iron Kobra, Game Over) artwork is sheer perfection. Love the old-school Indiana Jones look. But, what's inside? Intensity. Bottled intensity. This EP features two original tracks and two covers (Misfits, Maiden). "Megalodon" is an over-the top opener with some rougher vocals and fast-as-lightning riffs and drums. The highlight for me is the second cut, "Styx Demon", which has a more traditional new wave feel in a Motorheadish way. Killer video btw for "Styx Demon".
Recommended for fans of:
Older Kreator and Sodom
