Ha ha! This stuff makes me laugh and really puts a wide grin on my face. It sounds like this Swedish Thrash Metal trio, better known as Entrench, has raised up a dirty middle finger to all current retro-Thrash trends, in which many new bands seem to bathe so deep these days.
Entrench does not sound retro at all. In fact, the band's second album, Violent Procreation, sounds like it could have been recorded in the middle of the craziest Thrash Metal boom of the mid 80's. The songs, as well as the production, are raw and straightforward which is always a good thing in my book. It's bands like early Sadus, early Kreator, Morbid Saint and even early Death (due to the guitar's ripping and crispy sound) that come to mind while spinning Entrench's second disc. It hammers you down immediately after placing it into your CD player with all the hostility and brutal aggression it's been loaded with. "One with Agony" kicks in your teeth while "Those Who Exceed," "Adjust to Summit," "Chemical Holocaust/The Mental Wasteland" and others give your skull a "kick-in-yer-fucking-face" treatment that you won't soon forget. This is savage, brutal and extremely violent Thrash Metal, full of primitive aggression and the intention to kill with the first strike. This will clean the wax out of our ears.
Entrench says "fuck off!" and I am going to add to that by saying "buy or die!" F**K...!!!
