Paralysis-You Can't Win (2016)

The cover art here is fkn cool. I'd also like to state that this may just be the finest hour for New Jersey speedsters Paralysis. The later Ep had some memorable tracks, but this new Ep is just so fast and fun, for the most part. Quite intense tracks, catchy riffs like a wilder, uncouth early Metallica meets Whiplash. You can't win sounds as it should, razor sharp guitars playing quite fast through much of the material. Energetic Thrash Metal, as most of the songs are quite good. Definitely a good American young band, makes it absolutely irresistible if you like your music fast fast fast. The simplicity is scandalous and truly effective!
Special guest appearances:
Gerre (Tankard): Vocals on Track 1 ("You Can't Win")
Josh Christian (Toxik): Lead Guitar on Track 3 ("Transgression")
Bobby Gustafson (Satan's Taint, Ex-Overkill): Lead Guitar on Track 4 ("Scars")
