Evil Invaders are a Speed Thrash metal band from Belgium formed in 2007,
they just released their first album in February 2013.
Their style is all about being aggressive in a thrash metal way combined
with extreme speed and high range vocals from the old school speed metal bands.

This EP starts with Victim of Sacrifice, a powerful song that gets you involved
from the beginning to the end. Very strong lyrics suitable for a hymn to sing along
for many years to come.

Driving Fast starting with a really virtuous guitar riffs, it takes you to a fast speed metal rhythm,
great job with the vocals with a really high range and sharp raw voice;
the song slows down a bit on the first part of the solo and then attacks with the main riff,
fast and aggressive! In my opinion, one of the best of the album.

Tortured by the beast, what I really like in this song is the combination of melodic heavy metal verses
with early 90s thrash metal style chorus that make you scream loud "tortured".
Just another masterpiece in this album!

Speed Invasion, as an instrumental track, one of the strongest points here
 is how they manage to change the rhythm without losing energy,
speed thrash metal style drums attacking like a bomb!

 Alcoholic Maniac, it follows a fast start with some Exumer like riffs,
leading to a headbanging solo with a mid-tempo and high speed mix parts,
this track has a really great instrumental.

Last track is the self titled song Evil Invaders, and this time it starts with an in-crescendo instrumentals,
great job with the bass here! An explosive combination of vocals and guitars,
leading with a great chorus and an amazing ending.
Very solid track with reminiscences of Iron Maiden, where you realise how well influenced they are!

Evil Invaders just made a masterpiece speed-thrash metal album,
even though this is their first album we expect the best from them in the next years,
they are here to stay and to take the lead of the speed thrash metal scene!!

One of the releases of last year was this great first EP
of the polish death metal band Thunderwar, formed in 2013
by four metal maniacs that wanted not only to pay tribute
to legends like Bathory, Unleashed, Dissection or Amon Amarth,
but to prove that Poland has still something to say to the Metal
world, and so they did! Being the first EP with four songs that
prove what traditional Death metal is all about!

The EP starts with VIMANA (Chariots in heaven) with this familiar melodic death metal guitars, to suddenly
attack you with killer drums followed by the headbanging action, and
the aggressive voice death metalheads and thrash metal fans will like.

Brutal oldschool death metal, and a very solid chorus make this first song
a good start of the EP that will continue with a sudden death metal attack with
Shadows of Lindisfarne, this song takes you straight away to the mix of death metal
action with a powerful start and a really good interpretation of brutal raw death metal voice,
suddenly they change the rythm with some thrash metal headbanging bridge
 before the chorus, following by the virtuosism of the solo where they
make some symphonic parts to finish with the heaviest in-crescendo ending that makes
this song what it will be the style of the band we hope to see in the future.

The last song of the EP is the instrumental track The Birth of Thunder, with accoustic
intro adding orchestra instruments making a really well composed epic track and making
this EP a very solid first job of this polish Epic Death metal band that really, my friends,
they are here to stay, taking the torch of the old school true death metal bands,
Get prepared of what this band will come in the future!
They are Thunderwar
