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.

Firstly, I would like to express that Abigail is the band that introduced me to the extreme metal scene of Japan. From there I found many other bands of varying extreme genres of music including black metal, death metal, grind, hardcore and crust from the land of the rising sun. I personally own every full length release of Abigail‘s, including an original CD pressing of Forever Street Metal Bitch from Drakkar Productions, a few splits and a demo. There is not a...

Berserker Fest III at the Masonic Temple in Detroit Michigan is where I first witnessed the power of Tombstalker. As they played the raw third stage along side the likes of Detroit’s Isenblåst and Perversion, I was left wondering how did this crazy band get billed on this show. I figured with their unique blend of black thrash with tinges of death metal that they had to be from Europe as their sound is a descendant of the bloodline of Swedish and U.K. masters....

Upon viewing the name of the band, album, and album art, what is the first influential extreme metal band that pops in your head? Did you guess Metallica? Guess What? YOU ARE FUCKING RETARDED AND YOU NEED TO HIT THAT X IN THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER. Yes, Apokalyptic Raids is a full fledged Hellhammer worship band. Does that make them bad? Fuck No! If you have anything negative to say about this band it is because you wish you were the first person to come up with being a...

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...

Michigan is home to many rockers. Out of them all the most important legends are Iggy & The Stooges, MC5, and Alice Cooper. Iggy & The Stooges showed the world a new raw form of music, MC5 kicked out the f-bombs, and Alice Cooper made it O.K. to wear corpse paint.(Kiss just looked like clowns which inspired another Michigan gimmick but I don’t have time to talk about that.) In other words, in America, California and New York get all the credit for everything...
