"THRASH METAL PROPAGANDA"
BEAST is a very cool old school Thrash Metal band out of Madrid, Spain. These guys
formed back in 2010 and "THRASH METAL PROPAGANDA" is the bands third release to
date. This CD EP came out back in early 2012. I am a huge Thrash Metal fan, this is the first
real Metal I grew up listening to, so I was really excited to hear what BEAST had to offer.
These guys were exactly was I was expecting, killer old school Thrash Metal done right.
BEAST doesn't sound like a rip off or a throw back Thrash band, but these guys could have
come right out of the 80's and hung tight with a lot of the killer Thrash bands of that time.
They have a more Crossover Thrash Metal sound to me rather than straight forward Thrash
Metal. I loved the crunchy, crusty guitar sound that is running through out all their songs.
There is a cool groove that reminded me of the days of Thrashin' in the pit at a lot of
concerts. The music really reminded me of NUCLEAR ASSAULT mixed with
FORBIDDEN & DESTRUCTION a lot. If you were to add in some touches of D.R.I.,
especially from their "CROSSOVER" & "THRASH ZONE" albums along with THE
SPUDMONSTERS, then you'd get a good idea of what these guys sound like. The vocals
of Matheus really reminded me of Kurt Brecht of D.R.I. (DIRTY ROTTEN IMBECILES),
who are considered to be the "fathers of Crossover". You could add in some touches of early
SUICIDAL TENDENCIES & S.O.D. as well. These guys are a really cool and talented
Thrash Metal band that could be compared to modern Thrash acts like MUNICIPAL
WASTE, TOXIC HOLOCAUST & CONDITION CRITICAL. Truly amazing Thrash
Metal! Thrash til Death!!!
