THY GATE BEYOND
"ENEMY AT THE GATE"
SG RECORDS

THY GATE BEYOND hails from Italy, but they play a heavily influenced American &
German style of Thrash Metal music from the 80's. I know there has been a big resurgence
of bands playing this style of music, which is perfectly fine by me. I grew up on Thrash
Metal music and became my first love of Metal, so the more the merrier.

BEYOND
sound as if they could have stepped right of the 80's. They infuse elements of
Thrash Metal and Power Metal together to create their sound. The guitar shredding and
riffing are strong Thrash Metal styles while the vocals tend to lean towards Power Metal
with some harsher Thrash Metal screams mixed within. I dig the grooved out Thrash riffing
a lot, which reminded me of early
METALLICA & ANTHRAX, while the more intricate
and involved parts reminded me of
MEGADETH & TESTAMENT. The vocals done by
Simone Flammini sound a little like Joey Belladonna of
ANTHRAX mixed with Paul Baloff
of
EXODUS. These guys have transported me to a time of great Metal music all while
giving me something fresh. This was my first time hearing
THY GATE BEYOND, but I am
now going to search out their past releases. Great Thrash Metal in the vein of the old school
greats! Thrash on!!!
