Well, what do we have here? Could it be...a Black Metal band that hasn't forgotten the METAL aspect of the genre? Such bands are few and far between these days, and as such I greedily lapped up this demo once it came to my knowledge that this band played filthy Thrash that could easily have been recorded in the early Eighties.

Five tracks divided into seven minutes of uncompromising first rate, first wave worship. Cutting out all that could possibly be deemed filler, Warhorde focuses on putting together a couple of simplistic, heavily distorted riffs per song at most, throwing in a short solo for good measure. Despite the short length of the tracks, the compositions are never undermined and each idea Paul brings to the table is fully fleshed out.

The very fuzzy production of the demo (cleaned up slightly on the cover of The Nuge's Stranglehold) adds a certain sense of "authenticity" and very much captures the feel of grimy Eighties Thrash. As Paul delivers his lyrics through moans and groans in an odd strangled yet conversational manner, the drum machine pushes the music along, generally following a sloppy, simple punk-like yet violent pattern with repeated, jarring crash hits ferociously jolting the listener's skull.

Today, in most 40 minute BM albums you'd be hard pressed to find 2 minutes of killer music let alone 7. To fill up your time, I say keep the demo on repeat, which really shouldn't be hard to do considering the quality of it. Symphonic BM, Industrial BM, Suicidal BM, Disagreeable Woodland Elf BM can all fuck off. Black METAL reigns supreme.
