"CHALICE OF CONTEMPT"
Poland's BLOODTHIRST is back with their third full length album "CHALICE OF
CONTEMPT" to date. The band has been around for over 15 years now and play crusty
sounding Thrash Metal music. Their sound takes elements from classic era Thrash Metal
and meshes it with touches of todays Thrash Metal and then covers it in filthy Black
Metal influences. They have a very dirty and gritty feel to their music that reminds me of
some of the greats from the early days. The guitars work goes back and forth between
chugging Thrash riffs, grooved out parts and screeching guitar parts. The vocals style is a
gritty Thrash Metal style with some harsher and throaty sounding vocals thrown in. I
could see these guys causing a huge circle pit during one of their live shows. If you were to
take the best parts of NUN SLAUGHTER, MANIAC BUTCHER, ATOMIZER,
TOXIC HOLOCAUST, VENOM, POSSESSED, SODOM & WITCHERY and mixed
them all together then you would get BLOODTHIRST. If you ask me, those are killer
amazing bands to compare to which means only one thing. Get this album now and blast it
loud and often. BLOODTHIRST is a great Thrash Metal band and every Thrash Metal
fan should have them in their collection! 'Nuff said!!!
