Mudra-"The End of World"

I think this album is still a solid modern thrash effort and is truly keeping the Thrash metal sound alive in this, the new era of Thrash Metal.The album in question is very much a mixture of the sounds found on bands as Exodus, Slayer and Anthrax. It takes the overall aural chaos of “Among The Living” " Bonded by Blood" and also parts of the refined energy from “ South of Heaven".To start with, the production is bloody brilliant. Every guitar and bass note just sears holes through your head while the drums blow away what's left of your brain. Really truly great production by these young guys from Arequipa-Peru.The Lyrical content of the album is also spot on, exactly what one would expect in Thrash lyrics. Addressing issues of war, violence, the hypocrisy of religion, etc. The vocalist has a very unique screech that is at once maddening and pleasant. It fits the songs very well. All in all it's a very solid release. I eagerly await the next release from this Thrashers!
