Blood Tsunami - Thrash Metal - 2007 - Candlelight Records
Fans of today's "throwback" bands (Witchery, Municipal Waste) will spoon this up with pride and dignity as they hear riff after scorching riff of classic thrash metal. Many of you have heard the amazing skinsman Faust in action time and time again, but who would have thought the unknown combo of Pete Evil (lead guitar & vocals) and Dor Amazon (lead guitar & backing vocals) could shell out this kind of chemistry on a rookie try. The two combine to lay down some amazing twin guitar, effectively using tight riffs that change three to four times over through the tracks, usually soaring into huge leads once or twice. Tracks like "Rampage Of Revenge" and "Devoured By Flames" are smooth, well calculated efforts that use a virtuoso building block of chops and leads over blackend vocals (Evil) overlapped with some deep growls (bassist Bosse). Opener "Evil Unleashed" is like a wicked romp of Bay Area titans Overkill mixed with Exodus, while a track like "Let Blood Rain" is straight out of the Slayer workshop. Favorites for me are the mosh-happy "Infernal Final Carnage" and strong finisher "Killing Spree".
