Pripjat is a town in Ukrane and needed to be evacuated because
of the nuclear accident in Tschernobyl, which immediately explains the album
title. Pripjat plays old school thrash metal with Kreator and especially early Slayer
as their biggest influences. Even the vocals of Kirill Gromada have some slight
similarities with Mille. Another band that can be mentioned here is Destruction.
Nothing new or original can be heard on this album and the guitar soli are
in howling Slayer style as well. Nevertheless it isn't a punishment to listen to
the album. The youngsters have a lot of pleasure in playing this style and
fortunately don't take themselves too serious. If you want to have a real party
with some beers and you need some music to it based on early Slayer, Kreator
with a small Bay Area influence, this is what you need.
