This CD fell on my door mat few weeks ago. Swedish band Terrorama has released their third full-length. Extreme metal is the right word for this music. Thrash, Black and Death influences are what their music is about. Not modern stuff, but the band takes you back to the early eighties, where bands like Sadus rehearsed in their garage. Sadus is indeed one of the bands they remind me of, but than with a more blackened edge to it. The band mentioned Brazilian squadrons like Vulcano and Holocausto as main influences also and that is rather correct.

Terrorama takes no prisoners and the half an hour of music is devastating and ruins everything on its way. The lyrics are a concept about the darker side of human nature; Stalin's USSR/Gulag, Nazi Germany, Idi Amin's Uganda, Holodomor etc. Rather controversial historical subjects that have left their mark and show what is really lurking inside the soul of man. I assume the band doesn't praise these historical developments, but just wants us to remind of the horror and not to let it happen again.

People who like the Sadus demo will certainly love this music. No over the top production here, but the album sounds like an extreme metal album should sound like. Something for the last 9 days of our existence?
