BAND BLACK MASS
LABEL IRON SHIELD RECORDS
OUT Feb 15th, 2019
OUR RATING 83/100
Black Mass is a Thrash Metal trio band on the road since 2012.
Surely they're focused on trash but we can feel influences from 80's Thrash (Slayer/ Razor), Old School Death Metal (Death/Morbid Angel), Scandinavian Black Metal (Darkthrone/Aura Noir), and Overcharged Rock n' Roll (Motörhead/Inepsy).
The band released their first EP "The Second Coming" in April 2013 followed by their first full length, out in October 2015, called "Ancient Scriptures".
In May of 2017 the band released a two track demo to showcase material from their upcoming new full lenght.
On Feb 15th will be out their upcoming full length release titled "Warlust".
It contains eight songs, an intro and an interlude, right to break the rhythm.
Drums provides always different solutions, such as vocals.
If the title track is so closer to old-school thrash, PROGAMMABLE LIFE FORMS reminds us a metallized version of Mötorhead, while HIGH PRIEST IN BLACK begins with a speed-thrash runaway but provides also an interesting epic break, before restarting faster and wider than ever!
Darker the great GRAVEYARD ROCK, closer to classic metal, while HELLHOUNDS, one of our favs, is a great mix of what before listened to.
We go on with BIBLE STOMP and VIRGIN SACRIFICE, another speed/thrash ace, before FUELED BY DRUGS, another assassin song, ends in the best way this great platter!
Surely to suggest!
