This Greek thrash metal band has actually held together since they started in 2001 as a cover band. They later found out that they should try to make their own original tunes, and every thrash Metal fan should be extremely glad they made this decision.
The Thrash Brigade starts off with a Prelude to Violence, and yes, the intro says it all. The band gives us a powerhell of energetic oldschool thrash, that makes me think of old Exodus, Atrophy and the other oldschool Bay area bands. It's not just a matter of the right sound, cause the band has really managed to recreate the 80's sound, but more importantly they've managed to recreate the feel and attitude that are missing from a lot of the new bands on the scene. The band spits out a message with real conviction!
As always not all the riffs are original, but I guess that would be almost impossible. You can hear similarities to other great thrash bands here and there, but the way the band sounds together, makes it original. They play tight and powerful, and they play as a band. Some bands believes it's enough to show off a great guitar player or drummer, this band has understood that the whole band has to sound good together, and they do!
This band deserves all the publicity they can get, so spread the word, download their songs, and give them the place in the Thrash Metal Universe they deserve!
