New wave thrash bands seem to be sprouting out all over the place these days, with Aggression hailing from Spain. I can't help feeling that the genre is beginning to get a little over saturated, and I hope history doesn't repeat itself. However that is nothing against Aggression or the scene, as I've found a lot of enjoyment for these bands. Aggression sound a lot like current genre stalwarts Evile as well as a bit of Bonded By Blood. Add to this some healthy influence from some of the German thrash acts of old and you have Aggression's sound. These guys are certainly a cut above your run of the mill modern thrash act, and in terms of quality could stand shoulder to shoulder with acts like Gama Bomb or Municipal Waste. Tracks such as "Never Surrender" show these guys can carry their sound over a longer period of time without boring which is always good, although they work better in quick bludgeon's such as the title track or "Psycho-Crime". Aggression strikes me as the type of band who would kill live too, there's many a fine moshing moment in this release, and it should definitely please any thrash fan worth his kutte. All in all, this is a solid thrash debut. While nothing original there is a solid injection of energy into Moshpirit which gives these guys a weight of promise in them for future releases. As with the majority of the modern thrash albums I've reviewed, this won't change the mind of the nay-sayer, but fans of the genre – especially the new bands – should certainly seek Aggression out.
