EVIL WHIPLASH “Beyond Dimensions”
Iron, Blood & Death Corporation
Well, the name of this Colombian thrash metal band immediately recalled me the old gods Whiplash from New Jersey.
These young guys have been active since 2008 or something and of course they’ve released a couple of underground releases before this sophomore. All tracks are based in a raw mix of speed and thrash metal genre, with clear traces of punkish attitude and corrosive guitar lines. Actually, these guys still have one foot in amateur sound, but I admit that everything is tied with high doses of creativity and personality, musically speaking. Inclusive, they dare to compose some large instrumental sections, with a particular own seal. We find 9 tracks of honest and direct-to-your-face thrash metal act, recovering old atmospheres from 80’s bands. But I have to say that the band knows what they want and they are near to get it. It’s another young gang from South America you should keep an eye on. – Victor Varas
