Artist: Black RatAlbum: Demo 2017Genre: Black Metal/ ThrashOrigin: CanadaLabel: IndependentYear: 2017 % Discuss this album in the MetalXtreme forum! Blackrat has been around for roughly 5 years. In those 5 years they have refined their sound into a raw black thrash. This 2017 demo is f****** sweet. This reeks of old school. This is some quality black thrash, even if it is just a demo.

This is an epic music video for a song that is beyond the capacity of words of epicism. Bathory‘s “A Fine Day to Die” is one of the heaviest tracks you can hear in the realms of Viking Black Metal, shit just Black metal alone. Sing the Fuck Along at Home!!!!! Orgy of silence Conspiracy of peace Only the sound Of the cold northern breeze Twinsun sink fading Behind the black lake Asleep is the mountains Yet the night is awake Strange is the night Now black...

Alright, I promise I am not going to fuck this up like I did recently with Mortal Strike where I mistakenly called Austrians Australian and when I called Malokarpatan Slovenian when they are Slovakian. BattleX is an awesome traditional heavy metal influenced Thrash band from Slovenia. There was a sound that thrash developed just before the accursed term half-thrash arrived in the early 90’s that derived after the turbulent 80’s thrash scene broke the speed of...

The first time I ever heard the highly under-rated grind of Germany’s Blood was when I saw the name and logo strewn across the unwelcoming blue art of the album Gas.Flames.Bones. Long story short I was not disappointed by the grind that Blood makes (or is that short story long because it is grindcore…??). Blood is one of the most, if not the most, consistently impressive and true bands to the genre of grindcore. O Agios Pethane is of their most appraised albums...

It is always nice to hear a metal album that bends the rules of genrefication(I’m coining that word right now!) rather than conform to them. That is just what Italy’s Barbarian does with their new album Cult of the Empty Grave. This is an epic heavy metal album that fluently blends elements of thrash, traditional metal, and black metal. We have been told our whole lives to never judge a book by its cover, but this is an album. If you were to judge Cult of the...

You have no excuse to have never heard of D.R.I or their blasphemous drunken grandchildren Municipal Waste unless you are lobotomized from headbanging too much. Even then the last thing that is ringing through your mind eternally is a foreboding D.R.I. riff. So what do you get when D.R.I. meets up with Municipal Waste, you my fellow metal head gets BAT! Formed between Ryan Waste , Felix Griffin, and Nick Poulos, BAT is a speed metal demon! We have waited for 3 years and...
