EBM records presents the 36th offering of the "Thrash is Back" Series.
After destroying eardrums worldwide with "Death Sentence", "Metal is Addiction and Obsession" and "Vendetta", REVENGE unleashed "Soldiers under Satan's Command", a record which quite possibly is Colombia's quintessential thrashterpiece. All elements are represented here... chaotic drumming, precise riffage, apocalyptic lyrics and Esteban Mejia "Hellfire"'s razorblade vocal delivery (with a total new vocal approach)... not to mention great cover art and excellent songwriting.
Much more refined and elaborated over than previous releases, "Soldiers under Satan's Command" still remains caustic and brutal, with songs like Metal & Wild and Satan's Soldiers thrashing hard enough to rip any wayward metalhead a new one. The music is technical without being pretentious and every song is a keeper.
Influenced by first-wave of German thrash metal bands such as Kreator, Sodom and Destruction TOXIC TRACE's "The Chapel of Insanity" spews forth a barrage of intense, fast as fuck thrash songs with guttural harsh vocals that do honor to the genre's pioneers.
They do manage to create a real aura of old-school mayhem that will have fans of that classic mid-80's teutonic sound bouncing off the fucking walls. Great cover art by Tara Kerac featuring a disturbing tableau of a black/bloody mass perfectly captures the essence of the blasphemic brutality that TOXIC TRACE unleashes with surgical precision. Unstopable Speed is the main reference of this Thrash Tornado !!!
Fucking essential THRASH FUCKING METAL!!!
