When in 2010 AFM Records signed with KORZUS, the Brazilian are already a band with significant history. Founded in 1983, they pass thru time without serious changes in the line up. Three of their members remain till nowadays. Although this is the fifth album of the band, their musical seeking has also remarkable stability!

Without coming out from the shell of thrash metal, the five musicians offer us an angry perusal. The vocals of Marcello Pompeu are passionate like the metal-core bands. The high note of aggressive singing is kept without unnecessary decorations. The result is close to GENERATION KILL – the band of Rob Dukes (ex-EXODUS). At the same time in the riffs made by the double guitar attack are implemented specific only for KORZUS melodies. The love toward noise is missing. Typically for the South-American bands the crystal clear guitars pin every metal tone with remarkable precision in the monolith wholeness of „Legion“. The drum cannonade does not miss a strike that could be made in the duration of the recording while touching the blasts, and sounding even too precise.

Although the plenty resemblances with their previous album „Discipline of Hate“ (2010), KORZUS walk to modernization of their sound, and in their contemporary work the whole sound is placed toward the higher register. Combined with their uncompromising and unique thrash metal, they definitely are a remarkable band. The eponymous of the album song lays the final scheme of the work while replacing the endless aggression with touching melodies and social lyrics in the most serious traditions of SACROSANCT. Besides my hottest recommendations to hear them, do not lay up the visit of one of the most literate web sites where my words cannot take you!
