With the promise of some thrash metal Pantera style, I hit go on the new track from Disruption called Rebirth.
It doesn’t disappoint, with a quick smash of the drums waking the guitars up with a chunky as fuck riff that has thrash metal goodness written all over it.
Once the vocals kick in, it becomes plainly obvious that these guys don’t fuck around.
And they don’t lie about their music, either.
With flashes of Pantera magic sprinkled in with enough DNA spread through the music to ensure it retains the sonic image of their own volition, Disruption have nailed the classic thrash sound and expanded on it in their own way.
The first guitar solo arrives around the 1.15 mark, and it shreds like a motherfucker.
The vocals are abrasive and aggressive, delivered with an intensity bordering on insanity, while the guitar swirls and bludgeons with intent and venom.
Another wicked solo just after the two-minute mark summons an almighty growl/scream from the vocalist who carries us to the gates of Hell before a sudden stop brings things crashing to a halt.
And what a pleasantly brutal way to finish things.
