Death Mechanism
Twenty-First Century
Style: Thrash
Release date: 30 July, 2013
Playing time: 39:07

Hailing from Verona, Italy, this thrash combo releases their third album. This time no clean Bay Area thrash style, but real old-school thrash. Most of the songs are fast and the band reminds me the most of the band Sadus.

The graspy singing style of Pozza and the leading bass guitar are the main reasons for that. Pozza sounds like a mix of Chuck, Mille and Darren Travis. Add a big portion of early Slayer and you are a long way in how this band sounds. Sure it all sounds a bit old school, not an over the top produced album, but that is the charm of it also. The soli are fast and remind of early Slayer.

If you are into old school thrash, which sounds like a mix of early Sadus, Kreator, Slayer and Sodom, you will like this for sure.
