Thrash thrash thrash, riding hard and riding free. From Lithuania (sorry, never been there) comes Dissimulation, a seasoned thrash style black metal band that is a bit controversial for their blasphemous tendencies. The band has released their second effort to date through the label Ledo Takas, known for their release recently of Obtest. Dissimulation is made of Nekrofagas on guitars, Stabmeldys on drums, and Venomous on bass/vocals.
Fans of old thrash leatherneck bands should enjoy this group. Think of bands like Venom and Bathory crossed up with the German and bay area thrash scene of the '80s. At times I can hear that wicked bay area romp laid down by the mighty "Kill 'Em All" era Metallica, combined with the black metal, blasphemous bomb beats of Venom or Darkthrone. The end result is a thrash 'em and weep, killer black album that is both retro and raw.
"Prakeikimas" is highly recommended for the likes of old Kreator, Sodom, Metallica, Venom, and Bathory. Live from the batcave....perhaps.
