ALKIRA emerged on the scene back in 2009 out of South Australia. This four piece band
plays some killer old school Thrash Metal music. They pull elements from old school
classic '80's Thrash Metal and merge it with some modern elements of some of todays
Thrash Metal bands. They have that classic crisp clear guitar sound that meshes with some
all out chugging Thrash Metal grooves. The thing I like the best is the flavouring of some
Crossover and Punk influences they added in. The music has that vibe that early
SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, D.R.I. & S.O.D. had back in the day. The vocals are done in
a mid ranged kind of pissed off Thrash Metal scream style that reminded me of
OVERKILL mixed with NUCLEAR ASSAULT. The only bad thing I could mention
about this release is that it was only four tracks. I was left wanting more, a lot more.
ALKIRA is one of the better knew bands out there playing Thrash Metal music. If you
were to combined the best parts of FAITH OR FEAR, NUCLEAR ASSAULT,
OVERKILL, MUNICIPAL WASTE, HAVOK, D.R.I., S.O.D. & early SLAYER with
early EXODUS then you would definitely know how killer ALKIRA is. Get this album,
now! Thrash! Thrash! Thrash til' Death!
