Wow... I did not see this one coming!
This self-titled debut album by the American band THE DAY OF THE BEAST really took me
Influenced by Chaos, Darkness and Misanthropic Despair... this band is more than ready to
conquer the world with their blackened thrash metal that sounds like a mix of the above mentioned bands, plus; Skeletonwitch, The Crown, Defleshed, early Kreator, and early Sodom.
I admit that I gladly swallow almost everything when it comes to thrash metal, but this album is
an album that I just can’t stop listening to. Every song on the album is a winner and strong enough to stand on its own. Every song is packed with catchy, old school guitar runs that will stun the listener if he’s (or she’s) a genre fan. Every song should be played a couple of times to grow. Every song will make you headbang like crazy. Every song is packed with energy, passion and attitude.
The production is very 80’s and suits the music fine I think. Could have been a tad more powerful... but what the hell!
This is a straight forward, no nonsense blackened thrash metal release that will stay in your CD player for so long, that you will start charging it rent!
Get it NOW!
