MORTAL PESTILENCE “Universal Hatred”

This is another deadly attack of Aztec thrash metal at its finest. Everything here is aggressive, powerful and extremely well done. Coming from Naucalpan, Edo.Mex, this entity was founded in 2012 under the name of Mortal Plague.

ONSLAUGHT “Power from Hell”

Again, we have the pleasure to review such a gem from the 80’s, thanks to MW Records. Especially this piece of metal, that influence defined the early works of many bands, like Exodus, Slayer and Metallica of course.

GAMA BOMB “The Terror Tapes”

Metal Ways Records

Well, I will try not to sound like a “true” metalhead (hahahaha!), but seriously I lost my interest in this band when they signed with Earache Recs, about 10 years ago. And honestly it was because I remember seeing this logo everywhere in T-Shirts, patches, caps, pins, stickers, like a disease.

TERROR CHAOS FORCE “Island of Doom”

Metal Ways Records

I didn’t know absolutely anything about this band, and it’s a shame because easily it can become one of my favorite Mexican thrashmetal releases. This is from the mastermind José Luis Juárez (Ancesthor) and I’m really impressed due high quality of thrash/speed metal here.

INFECTION ATTACK “The Disaster Outcome”

I remember when I saw this young band in a small venue, in Ciudad Neza. I was really surprised due the high quality of compositions and high octane guitar riffs, rooted in the most aggressive and punkish side of thrash metal genre.

SURVIVAL “Rock & Roll Sacrifice”

Metal Ways Records

I remember the demo from the band, reviewed some years ago. It’s an excellent mix of speed metal and thrash metal spirit, with all the corrosive attitude and honesty from 80’s. If you ask me, these young dudes increased a lot musically speaking and all tracks denote a lot of work behind rehearsal room’s door.

BLACK TRACK Let the Thunder Roar! Review

BLACK TRACK “Let the Thunder Roar!”

Metal Ways Records

Following the true ways of traditional heavy metal, these guys recorded a very decent debut album forged in the most metallic and shiny side of the genre. Actually, we are talking about a new generation of heavy metal believers who seem like they are trapped in 80’s. Many of you will say that this is fashionable, and in a short time it’s going to disappear.

ANCESTHOR “Beneath the Mask”

Metal Ways Records

I can’t remember a Mexican band with a cover art of Ed Repka. If you know any, please send me a message. It’s not a coincidence that young thrash metal bands are sounding better and better, since almost all of them are living the authentic spirit of metal music. And I mean this spirit is not only about drinking beer and being a rock star every day.

MENTAL DEVASTATION “Red Skies”

Metal Ways Records

What an excellent piece of deadly, corrosive and violent thrash metal I have here! This is my first contact with this Chilean band, and believe me, this is one of those new South American attacks that are not following trendy bullshit. This is authentic thrash metal in the vein of old glories in American school, and they have the touch of fire in every single note.
