Style: Blackened Thrash/Speed Metal
Release date: 23 February, 2015
Playing time: 37:52

Three years after their debut, the Greek BIO-CANCER has not changed. If in their young attempts they were punk middle tempo thrash metal, now they are selected by Candlelight Records for something completely different.

The thunder in the short intro leads us in the eye of the storm where the ultra fast speed thrash meets vocals like these of Dani Filth on fast motions. The wall of sound is powerful but chaotic. The solos also are fast swaths in the high frequencies without conquering the tops of virtuosity. Churl backing vocals support the main voice on every couplet or chorus. Calmer passages and riffs make the picture diverse. Although them the songs of the Athens’s quintet remain unified and similar one to another.

The chasing of speed in combination with the sound in the high frequencies makes the impression for listening on fast motions. If I still had my old cassette recorder, I would be embarrassed! The over energy of BIO-CANCER is not supported by master’s control over the instruments neither from memorable achievements in the composing. With no doubt, they do not miss a style but it is not focused yet on the making a memorable album. The band is in the framework of blackened thrash, for which fans is made "Tormenting the Innocent." But the sound is better than the aiming demo productions without over jumping the middle level.
