One of the very best "thrash revival" albums I've heard. So a fair warning: if you're looking for something new in thrash metal, don't care, this isn't anything new. Otherwise if you like hearing some damn good balls-to-the-wall thrash with great vocals, riffs and everything, definitely do listen to this.
The Brazilian thrash metal band Violator has released an impressive debut album. This album is pure fucking thrash metal nostalgia! It has the same intensity and aggression as the great forefathers of thrash. Violator's type of thrash sounds like a mix between Death Angel, Artillery and Vio-Lence. Chemical Assault is jam-packed with technical and furious guitar riffs, blistering maniac solos, ever-pounding drums and of course really flawed vocals. You can definitely hear that the band plays with enormous passion and energy. Chemical Assault is an album that will take you back to the glory days of thrash metal. I bet that if this album was released in the 80's it would've easily become a thrash metal classic. One track that is guaranteed to snap your neck is ''Addicted To Mosh''. This album is a fucking must-have for all fans of old-school thrash metal.
