Tuck From Hell
Style: Thrash Metal
Release date: November 12th 2010
Playing time: 32:43

These Swedes are definitely not trying to be original or have the intention to add something new to the thrash genre. The Bay Area thrash style they come up with is in the veins of Exodus and Testament. Niklas "Tuck" Ingels sounds a bit similar to Testament's Chuck Billy, with the note that I like Chuck's vocal performance better, but Niklas voice fits the music well.

If you check the tracklist, you can conclude that even the song titles are far from original, but they are easy to scream and sing along with during live performances. I think this band will be a good opening act for all the bigger Bay Area thrash bands and they will be warming up the audience in an excellent way. The main act will find themselves in a warm bath when they enter the stage to do their act.

On the other hand I will be surprised if Tuck From Hell will get any further than being the opening act for a bigger band. Therefore they play to average, nevertheless it all sounds very familiar and the general thrash fan that collects everything that smells like thrash will appreciate this record. Nice to hear every now and then, but not special enough to get me thrown out of my chair.
