Damn. This stuff slays. I won't go into any details into the history of the band—other than dropping a reference to early Sepultura—as there's a really good interview that you can read here already and, without it, maybe I would have skipped this release entirely (so many promos, so little time...) The band's name might make you think that this is a doom band, but this is fast and furious old-school death/thrash that takes no prisoners. The decipherable, harsh vocals alone are already punishing enough, but throw in razor-sharp guitars and faaaaast pounding drums and the occasional evil vibe when they slow down to let the listener take a breather make this some of the best thrash I've heard in a while. It's impossible not to headbang, throw your fist in the air and play all your "air instruments" while listening to this little gem of ripping metal. The Troops of Doom have set the bar pretty for themselves with this debut EP, so I'm certainly looking forward to see if they can keep up this quality of material in the future. Words cannot do this EP justice, so hear them out for yourself.
