Fastkill - Infernal Thrashing Holocaust - 2004 - Satanic Lust Records
Japan's Fastkill bring the fast and furious with their debut album "Infernal Thrashing Holocaust", and with a title like that you know what to expect. Fans of the early works of Destruction, Sodom, Kreator, and Onslaught should look no further than this band. Building on speed, speed, and more speed, Fastkill embark on a mission to completely annihilate everything in their path, creating a full-length record of complete sonic devestation. At times the band play like madmen, simply going in and taking over with the most precise and tight riffs imaginable, all turned up and cranked up a million times faster than your modern Slayer or Exodus. The band borders on the macabre, with vocalist Singer Toshio completely out of control, hitting a strange register that combines screaming and singing together into one maniacal and sinister delivery. The riffs border on manical, just completely over the top with some of the fastest guitar playing I've heard in years.
"Infernal Thrashing Holocaust" is probably one of the finest thrash albums to come out in the last ten years. No need to describe the tracks here, I wouldn't be able to do them any justice whatsoever. I'll just leave you with this thought: Fastkill are thrash saviors, really creating the kind of speed metal that hasn't been played or heard in years. This band capture the sounds of 80s speed and brings it to life here in the 21st Century. If you are a fan of those types of extreme endeavors, then it is absolutely mandatory that you buy this record. For sound samples go to this location: http://fastkill.gooside.com/topwflame.htm .
