TIRAN
"REHEARSAL OF THE APOCALYPSE"
WINGS OF DESTRUCTION PRODUCTIONS

TIRAN is a Thrash Metal band from Russia that has been cranking out raw and brutal
Metal since 2005. They have a really killer old school Thrash Metal sound that takes me
back to the late 80's, especially of the Bay Area Thrash scene. Their music is where I hear
most of these influences coming across from. There is that raw and crunchy Thrash guitar
sound that really reminds me of old
METALLICA, MEGADETH & EXODUS with
some slight touches of
OVERKILL in the mix. The vocals is more where they differ
from these bands. The vocals are done in a more screaming throaty higher Thrash Metal
style with some almost Black Metal in there. The vocals reminded me of
KREATOR
mixed with
NUNSLAUGHTOR, DESTRUKTOR & ARCH ENEMY. This release is
not one of my favorite from these guys, just because the productions is not done as well,
which I expected because it is a rehearsal demo. There are two rehearsal tracks and two
live tracks on this release. I know that they do have a split release that came out after this
one, so check that out or their many releases prior to this one to get a true taste of this
killer Thrash Metal band.
