Unholy old school, Batman! Hellcrash may not be original, but what they lack in originality they make up for in attitude and delivery. Every time I listen to this, I can't help but think of a mix of early Venom and early Voivod (and hints of a few others of the early raw thrash variety), only on steroids as Hellcrash sure cranked this all the way up to breakneck speed. The vocals are so close to those of Cronos or Snake (it varies), it sometimes made me wonder if I was listening to some unreleased stuff. The punk influences are there, but early thrash is certainly predominant here and it's so raw and fast, it hurts. It's quite chaotic for the most part, but there are more melodic and orderly passages that add some catchiness to the whole thing before throwing you back into a maelstrom of pure old-school punky thrash.
