BRAIN DEAD
"MENACE FROM THE SICKNESS"
PUNISHMENT 18 RECORDS

Forming back in 2000 out of Northern Italy comes the Thrash Metal maniacs known as
BRAIN DEAD. These guys play a very killer old school Thrash Metal style from the '80's
and pays homage to the Bay Area Thrash Metal scene. They even took their name from
and
EXODUS song. BRAIN DEAD has captured the high energy and excitement that
came with the whole Thrash Metal movement back then. I was and still am a huge Thrash
Metal fan and was right there in that time when all these bands were exploding onto the
scene.
BRAIN DEAD could have emerged out of the Bay Area along with greats like
EXODUS, SLAYER, TESTAMENT,  MEGADETH & METALLICA if they were
around back then. The cool thing about
BRAIN DEAD is they have that killer Thrash
sound, but they also add in some flavoring of European Thrash Metal that was also coming
out back then like
DESTRUCTION, KREATOR, SODOM, TANKARD &
ONSLAUGHT
. There is some extremely fast paced riffing and all out grooving in the
guitars with some crunchy breakdowns and riffs. The vocals are done in a mid ranged
groggy and gritty Thrash Metal vocal style that reminded me of
OVERKILL meets
DESTRUCTION with touches of KREATOR thrown in. If this little review, that doesn't
do these guys enough justice and all of these great bands they are compared to, is not
enough to get you to pick this album up and shred it, then you are not really into Thrash
or just don't know what amazingly good Thrash Metal sounds like.
BRAIN DEAD is that
band and any of these bands would be proud to have them play beside them. They have
taking me back to my favorite time of Metal music and I thank them for that. Everyone
should become
BRAIN DEAD!
