Final Cut video premiere

“Violent Blues Thrash” – Redefining genres with FINAL CUT’s new video

It rattles, it cracks, it’s relentlessly straightforward, just as it should be in the genre – With the brand new single “Generation Y”, the Swiss demolition squad Final Cut deliver a true Thrash Metal hammer. Before hitting the 2-minute-mark, the quintet strikes out for the mosh part: Sawing riffs, whipping drums, and then? A wild harmonica solo! With this comes the birth of “Violent Blues Thrash”, a liaison between bluesy surprises and classical aggressive Thrash. On Final Cut’s upcoming second album, this stylistic realignment will be strictly continued and perfected with various instruments. But how did this come by? Drummer Florian remembers:

“Lukas is not only an excellent rhythm guitar player, he also masters the piano and the harmonica on a top level. Since we have founded the band, it was clear for us that we want to make ruthless, but most of all diversified thrash metal. We regularly jam blues with the entire band, simply ‘cause it’s a lot of fun.

As we were writing the new song “Generation Y” for our second album, Lukas said he wants to include a harmonica solo. It was so awesome to play this song live for the first time and see the crowd go crazy over it. That’s where we decided: Why not incorporate the blues jam in our thrash metal?! And we all agreed – We’ll invent Violent Blues Thrash!”

When I kicked this site off back in 2003, I had no idea that it would turn into what it has become. I am very proud of what we’ve done and achieved over the years. Musically I have a soft spot for 80s inspired hard rock, but my favourite music and bands are all to be found in the progressive universe these days.
