Background
Every once in a while an obscure thrash album rears its head evoking a crude type of brutality that reminds me that thrash never dies, it just stays underground where it started. Much like Deathraiser's 2011 onslaught 'Violent Aggression' which I reviewed so enthusiastically here, fellow South American thrash imports Necroriser's debut has the same type of brute force that isn't as easy to capture as you'd think. What precise country Necroriser are from is unclear, but the band formed in 2007 and moved to London to seek their fortune. From what I gather the band has made somewhat of name for themselves (which you would expect their own website to claim) and this debut follows up on 2011's E.P. 'Suicide', which along with the three other tracks are all included on this album. Recycled or not, this is an accomplished slice of thrash that in the best tradition is thoroughly relentless and far from original.


The Songs
The song titles present on this ablum will probably deter a lot of readers on this site from desiring to hear this, but there's always an unwavering element up for this acquired taste in metal. From the onset it's a blend of every classic thrash act you can decipher, 'Destruction' a vintage blend of Max Cavalera era Sepultura vocals mixed with Exodus at their heaviest. If that sounds like a dream come true you wouldn't be far off. There's a large dose of English thrashers Evile to be heard on 'Cleanse' but thankfully it's from the period before Evile became exclusive Metallica clones. The drumming on 'Suicide' never lets up, with a crystal clear production that equally highlights all three musicians to startling effect. The intro to 'Revenge' had me fooled that this was actually mid to late 90's Napalm Death, with just as much intensity as the English grindcore greats. The guitar work of 'Horror' is characteristic of Slayer, par for the course for any retro thrash purveyors. Most importantly every track is fast, with the odd breakdown into wailing feedback and dual riffing. These passages don't last long and for any of you still with long hair and enough exertion to headbang, this album will punish your neck if you're so inclined to such behavior at the age of 35 or over.


In Summary
The reviews have been promising for Necroriser and it's hard to find any fault with this from a jaded thrashers point of view like mine. It's always a welcome treat to discover bands like this intent on keeping the 80's alive. Whether they continue or are heard from ever again is anyone's guess, but let's hope they continue in this vein and don't tone the thrash down like so many before them.
