Blood Tsunami: Thrash Metal

When you title your debut CD Thrash Metal, you're pretty much laying your cards on the table. Blood Tsunami lays them out indeed with their new school take on an old formula. Upon first listen I couldn't help but hark back to early Kreator and Exodus, which is never a bad thing. From the opening track of "Evil Unleashed", Blood Tsunami assault you with razor edged riffs and galloping drum beats, while maintaining a certain melodic edge. Standout tracks include "Rampage of Revenge" and "Let Blood Rain", which both caused irresistible head banging. Not many bands would take a chance by putting a ten minute instrumental on their debut album; let alone a new school thrash band trying to make their mark. But I have to say, the instrumental "Godbeater" hits the mark. It is as good an instrumental as I've heard in quite some time, very well executed and well written, it really tells a story. Musically the CD is strong with Bard "Faust" Eithun of Emperor fame on drums, while the dual guitar attack of Dor Amazon and Pete Evil rip throughout the entire CD. One thing that left me a bit unsatisfied were the vocals of Pete Evil, which at most times seemed very Metalcore; but overall this wouldn't keep me from enjoying the CD again. Thrash fans, whether old or new school, should check out Blood Tsunami's Thrash Metal.
