Grindpad are a Crossover Thrash Metal band from The Netherlands, the country of tulips and clogs, and after building a reputation for themselves with a pile of EPs and intense live shows, they've gone ahead and released their debut full-length. These thrashing flying Dutchmen specialize in old-school '80s Thrash in the vein of bands like early Slayer, Nuclear Assault, Exodus, and Crumbsuckers, and Violence is just 11 cuts of that drenched in sweat, anger, and gallons of Heineken beer. With great riffs, endless energy, and a complete lack of mercy, these lads sound like they could have come from the '80s, and if I didn't know any better I'd say they were a long-running act that still had it after all these years. Any Thrash fan with 42 minutes to spare should spend that time getting addicted to this release.
