for:How Much Is Your Mask?
Starting their life as Unmasker, Anmasker have been going since 2012, and after years of hard work they finally got signed by Alone Records and released their full-length debut, How Much is Your Mask? Aggressive, old school, riff-driven Thrash Metal is the name of the game here, with influences like Slayer, Destruction, Assassin, and Vio-lence being the obvious cornerstones to their sound. No gimmicks, no artificiality, and no trace of modernity in sight, these boys just take everything we love about Thrash and mix them together into a tight, enthusiastic whole that sounds familiar while being very much their own sound. Bassist/vocalist Andrii Kachanov has that perfect Thrash style that's pretty similar to Schmier, especially in his screams. The rest of the band backs him up with the traditional gang shouts, and while they're pretty much all over the album, they never get old or overshadow the rest of the music. It's always great to hear bands from parts of the world not necessarily known for their Metal scene, and Anmasker are currently doing their native Ukraine proud in that regard. Worth sinking your teeth into.
