Thrash Bomb-Mission Of Blood E.P/Cassette (2013)

Ass whopping Thrash Metal Assault from Italy!!Their sound reminds me of Slaughter, Dark Angel, Zoetrope, Vio-Lence, and early Anthrax. These guys like the " Old school". 5 well-written tracks which satisfy the craving for raw Thrash. The drumming and the constant barrage of riffs proves why i as well as you should appreciate this band. A favorite of mine already from this slow-developing yet rising underground phenom from overseas. Hope to see more from the band in the future. A sound that will be cracking your skull!!

Memorain-Seven Sacrifices (2013)

A 5-piece Thrash Attack from Greece influenced by Sacred Reich, Toxik, Exodus and all the American Thrash Scene. Not really original in terms of the riffs they represent, but they do remind me of the Holt/Hunolt attack had. They show promise and hopefully the next release will give me more to go on. You need to hear what these guys are doing for this release!

Rampage-The Depths Of Rage (2013)

Death/Thrash from Russia! They tend to do the same thing as other Thrash Metal bands, but diversify it nicely with crafty guitarwork with constant shifting tempos. To be honest i don' like the voice but the musicianship is interesting. Will satisfy the need for speed and keeps the pit lively.

Eye Of Solitude-Canto III (2013)

The third full lenght cd of Eye of Solitude had an impact on me. 6 tracks based on Dante's Inferno, 66 minutes of dark funeral doom melodies, ultra-low vocals, it's the most amazing stuff  i've heard in the form of music. A killer guitar sound that makes you suffer, it doesn't really encourage any headbanging. Instead you'll walk into Hell and back. This band attacked my brain and will continue to haunt me in the afterlife. Love it or hate it, no matter what i doubt you'll understand it. For me i'll let myself descend into the abyss!!

Scalpel-Sorrow And Skin (2013)

Well, this band it is not anything totally out of this world but definitely has extreme power. Bands that come to mind are Suffocation, Deicide, Mortician, Brujeria. Scalpel utilizes aggression well; this could hurt the toughest of all moshers. Decent production with nice packaging. Get in touch with Sevared Records to obtain a copy!

Virus-A New Strain Of An Old Disease (2013)

Thrash Metal is just what the lunatic doctor ordered! Ungodly maniac Metal playing by no rules, this is 2013 when Metal needs more wild and free sound, Virus is here to kick your ass, it is cool to get a chance to hear these british thrashers playing unadultered Metal. If you like German Thrash
this band is definitely for you. Crushing riffs, insane drumming, in other words Metal to the bone!
Review by Paul Caravasi


If you like traditional Heavy Metal then this is a good purchase for you, especially if you don't know their music at all. Cruxiter plays in an old fashioned style which makes you shake your fist and sing along or play it loud, if you enjoy Manowar, Judas Priest, Maiden, or early Queenryche/Fates Warning then you should know what i'm talking about. Cool band, you won't be disappointed!
