This is my first encounter with Brazil's Andralls, although they have been kicking around for quite a while now, with four albums behind them, album number four being the album in question. These guys play thrash like it never went out of fashion. Of course there are a lot of bands doing that right now – I'm all for the thrash revival though, while it might lack a little in originality the majority of the bands sound more ferocious than a lot of the 80's stalwarts do today. Andralls are no different, being from the Brazilian school comparisons can be drawn to acts such as Korzus and Torture Squad. These guys are loud, fast and violent, straight to the point, no gimmicks, no bullshit; just ass-kicking thrash metal.

Everything you would expect from a thrash revival album is here in spades. Lunatic thrash breaks? You got it. Psycho guitar shredding? Hell yeah. Super quick snare patterns? You know the score by now, hell they even decided to stay true and keep the bass nicely audible in the mix, kudos. It's really hard not to enjoy this, while not a mandatory purchase for metal-heads the world over this stands as great fun. If you enjoy the modern wave of thrash bands and/or are still slamming around in your denims and high tops I'd say give this a look. Overall a good effort, that isn't flat out amazing but is pretty standard for the genre and will definitely get your head banging.
