EBM records presents the 23th offering of the "Thrash is Back" Series.
Coming from Indiana and formed in late 2009, TESTIMONY consists of four young metalheads who are devoted to the proliferation of Progressive Thrash Metal and the creation thereof. Testimony sets itself apart with superior musicianship and complexity that is hard to come by in this day and age. Bands come and go, but few capture the mind of the listener like Testimony.
TESTIMONY combines elements of thrash and progressive metal, yielding a sort of spacey travel through time that rips like any other band from '80s, but with an artistic flair all its own. The band's first release, Transcending Reality, borrows heavily from what came over 20 years ago, but places a lengthy twist on the music, often with drawn out sections and technical bonuses.
"Transcending Reality", is a definitive piece of Metal to watch out and has all the elements to show the band's true potential and promising future.
INTERCEPTOR are yet another band that is putting Italian thrash metal on the map. Formed in 2009 the band under went dramatic line-up changes for nearly two years until finally in 2011 the band established a stable line-up allowing Interceptor to unleash their debut EP " One With The Beast..Meet With The Damned " upon masses.
Their music is a very good mix of german thrash bands like Kreator, Sodom & even Tankard and US thrash bands like Forbidden, early Testament, early Anthrax. Interceptor will take you on an old-school thrill ride that is as fast as it is furious. Featuring face melting intensity, a few killer solos and riffs that are sure to break your freakin' neck, One With The Beast...Meet With The Damned has something for everyone including a killer cover of the Grim Reaper tune See You In Hell. The bottom line is "One With The Beast...Meet With The Damned" is mandatory for any fan of the thrash metal genre.
Features an extra track which was not included in the original INTERCEPTOR 7" EP.
