Why couldn't these originally Växjö-based Swedish Thrash Metal torpedoes just reform? Horror Infernal, the 16-track compilation containing Hypnosia's two demos, 1996's Crushed Existence and 1997's The Storms, along with their debut mini-album Violent Intensity from 1999, simply slays! Hypnosia has this beautiful Pleasure to Kill-era Kreator vibe stamped all over their music. The songs sound crispy, heavy, aggressive, raw and are, first and foremost, catchy as hell in-yer-face Thrash. The album is just one song after another, straight to our stupid faces. Hypnosia crushes on all levels and we should demand that they reform. Hypnosia played music that was an infernal crossbreed of early Sadus, early Kreator, early Demolition Hammer and Morbid Saint. Many a thrasher worldwide had a crush on the band's brutal and fast Thrash Metal. Hypnosia's Thrash Metal nails the listener's ears to the wall; you become intoxicated by it and it is certainly far from some of today's "buy, play, throw away" stuff. Even their choice of covers, Sodom's "Outbreak of Evil" and Possessed's "My Belief," deserve a few well-earned devil's horns.

Want some real testosterone-filled, chest-pounding Thrash Metal? If so, you should check out Sweden's Hypnosia. It is all you need to get your daily dose of adrenaline coursing through your veins.
