Power of Metal.dk Review

Biotoxic Warfare
Style: Thrash Metal
Release date: 19 January, 2015
Playing time: 37:00

The debut album by this thrash metal combo from Heraklion (Greece) will not end in the history books as groundbreaking. Their music combines American style with German thrash metal style: combining Slayer, early Metallica with Kreator. The vocals of Mike Kavalos is more leaning towards grunting than harsh thrash and that in combination with the rather heavy production makes the album rather heavy (almost death metal style). You already can conclude that the band is not in the scene to create original music. Therefore the influences and riffs are too recognizable. Around the globe there are a lot of bands that probably have the same potential, but never get the opportunity to make an album.

An average album with nothing new, but for a debut it isn't bad and for a thrash metal lover it is easy to listen to the album from start to finish and there's also enough to like.
