5.0 classicChaoticVortex | March 31st 15

One of the best neo-thrash albums. Combines everything that made old-school Bay Area bands like Exodus, Testament and Heathen so good without sounding forced or recycled. Relentless pacing and stunning technicality with a dynamic sound. This is how you make a debut album.


4.5 superbMacaroni Maniac | June 23rd 14

Way more people need to hear these guys. Amazing work for a debut, especially considering the weakness of their contemporaries.


5.0 classicleycec | April 15th 14

Krongle speaks the truth; Tantara's debut is an exemplar retro thrash release. They hit all of the key targets for Bay Area revival thrash: the requisite razor-bladed riffs ("Negligible Souls": check), the requisite ecological degradation ("The Killing of Mother Earth": check), the requisite mandatory bonus track ("Untitled": check), the requisite ten-minute epic fest ("Prejudice of Violence": check), and the requisite Flemming Rasmussen production (of Blind Guardian, Metallica, Morbid Angel, and Rainbow fame: check). It's all here, folks. It's all here.


4.5 superbKrongle | October 2nd 12

A thrash album that without doubt deserves a spot in your collection. Relentless riffing and singing throughout. It's delightful to witness such a good thrash band from Norway of all places.
