Cyanide Grenade are a 4-piece Thrash Metal act that formed in 2013 and released this, their debut album, back in 2017, and I have to say I've been spinning it quite a lot recently. Musically, they've got a slightly punky and even Black/Thrash kick to their music that's somewhat akin to Venom mixed with early Kreator and Exodus, particularly on their cover of "Black Metal". The riffs are good if not spectacular, the solos are quick, violent outbursts the way Hanneman and King used to do it, and the rasps of vocalist Vitaly are raw and rather one-note, but they do get the job done. There's nothing revolutionary about this in the slightest, but if 34 minutes of enjoyably above average old-school Thrash sounds like a good time to you, then this album will hit the spot.
