Dismantle, from Rosemead, CA, have been around since 2006 and have released a bunch of demos, a split-release with The Satanix and one full-length studio album (Satanic Force). Enter the Forbidden is the band's second full-length album for Chinese AreaDeath Productions.
Old school, retro Thrash, in particular, is the name of the game here, but I am at a crossroad with Dismantle's 9-track second outing, Enter the Forbidden, whether I like it or not. The whole thing reeks of as much old school retro Thrash as is possible also of that old, white gnawed bone that has been left in the sun for years and has absolutely nothing left on it. Musically, Dismantle fall into the same Thrash pit as Merciless Death or Bonded by Blood (considering current Merciless Death and HeXen drummer Gio Loyola is part of the Dismantle lineup, I guess that makes sense). To their credit, they also incorporated elements similar to Slayer, circa their infamous 1983 debut album, Show No Mercy. I don't believe Enter the Forbidden will stand the test of time, but for a quick fix of old school-tinged Thrash Metal, the album works OK.
