Thrash Metal Propaganda
Spring 2010, the band Beast was founded in Madrid by Matheus (Vocals), Ivan (guitar),
Dani (bass) and Jean (drums). Their destination was to combine pure Thrash Metal
with influences of other musicgenres as Death Metal. In the End of 2010 Beath
recorded their first demo CD "Nuclear Devastation". Some times later they played
gigs with well known bands as Breathless, Agresiva and Havok. In November 2011
the Band released their first EP "Beer and Blood". At the beginning of 2012
Daniel (Guitar) joined the band and complett the lineup. Now Beast
released their newest work - "Thrash Metal Propaganda".
The Ep contains 5 tracks and i am excited about what i will hear. "Toxic Wastes"
is the first song with nice overdriven guitars and a drum which leads the song.
I remember the beginning of Anthrax and wow they are really similar. Also the
vocals are great and full of power. So now to the 2nd. "One Body, Two Bags" a
very fast Thrash Metal song, and a singer who is between screeming vocals and
driving extasy. So it is a song, that is worth to hear it some times more.
"Black Death" the third song of this cd, is a song to remember. It is played in
mid-tempo with soft and consistend drumming and the guitars and bass are used to
loosen up the vocals. The fourth song "Thrash Metal Holocaust" is a fast one and
you just have to bang your head in the rythm of the music. The last one on this
work is called "Blood Upon the Snow" and i have awaited an ass kicking Trashsong
but it is a melodic one with driving guitars and an unusual end for this EP.
Opinion: This EP "Thrash Metal Propaganda" contains 5 songs who show a
lot of the band. It has a good production, but i think they are able to pull
more out of it. The style of the band is native Thrash Metal, i think with
american influences and of course, the last track is really unusual.
