The Scandinavian thrashers Tantara unleash their sophomore album “Sum Of Forces” to the hungry pits ! It’s been 6 years since their debut full-length ‘Based on Evil’, and now the fierce thrashers are back again with another –6-track charge-straight-through-your-cranium album! Tantara – “Sum Of Forces” out now!
Since the release of their debut album in 2012, Tantara have shared the stage with bands such as Kreator, Havok, Destruction, Artillery, Gama Bomb and many other great bands. With “Sum Of Forces”, they are once again ready to bring the genre back to its roots, combining heavy melodies, fast riffs and complex song structures!
Tantara never shy away from their essential thrash roots, however, the roots have clearly grown and expanded outwards to a larger territory. The album opens up with a steamroller of a track with the title ‘Punish the Punisher’, setting the mood from the get-go, and over the course of the record, rushes through both intensely fast-paced tracks, as well as a mid-paced track, conveniently titled ‘Sleepwalker’, and closing up the album with a seemingly chilled and contemplative track that evolves into various moods and atmospheres. The riffs are as heavy and virtuous as ever, the vocals sear through your earlobes like a hot cleaver through fat, and the rhythm section shreds away throughout; truly this album offers an unquestionable satisfaction to any thrash metal fan’s needs. All band members, inspired by the heavy and thrash metal scene from the 80’s, have given the genre a new, modern edge, while still keeping true to the legacy. With this new release the band shows once again that thrash isn’t dead – it is very much alive in Norway!
