Based on Evil
Style: Bay Area Thrash
Release date: 24 August, 2012
Playing time: 59:20

Playing old school Bay Area based thrash and with Flemming Rasmussen responsible for the production, it is not that difficult to guess what kind of music these Norwegian's play. In the info they write that they draw inspiration from bands such as Metallica, Anthrax, Exodus, Megadeth, Heathen, Nuclear Assault, Slayer and Vio-lence.

I could stop with the review now, because you know enough. This is exactly what they bring; the typical riffs, the galopping rhythms, fast drumming, aggressive vocals, gang shouting and indeed influences from the bands they've mentioned. In my opinion the influences of Metallica and Megadeth lay on top, and the album even has the typical eighties sound.

If you find the first albums of Metallica, Megadeth, Exodus and Slayer their best, you have to get a copy of this Tantara album. The album took me back in time and did make me realize why I liked the eighties so much all over again... Original, no, nice, yeahh!!
