Hidden Evolution

Rated 4.3/5 (86%) (10 Votes)

It's been three years since Spanish Thrash torpedoes Angelus Apatrida unleashed their thrash-tastic fourth album The Call. Many of their fans worldwide answered that call and now in 2015 Angelus Apatrida have returned with all their cylinders firing.

Hidden Evolution sees these Spaniards continue their victory march through the fields of Thrash Metal. From one album to the next, Angelus Apatrida have been building their reputation as a high-profile Thrash Metal band. Blistering aggression and a great sense for striking melodies have always gone hand in hand within Angelus Apatrida's songs and the new album is no exception.

Bay Area Thrash is where these Spanish thrashers undoubtedly draw most of their inspiration, mainly from bands like Death Angel and Forbidden spiced with some of the clever ideas that Annihilator's Jeff Waters conjures from his 6-string. The songs are packed with piercing riffs making things even sweeter for this Thrash Metal fan. There are no weak or dull moments to be found on Hidden Evolution.

So far Angelus Apatrida have yet to record a bad album. Hidden Evolution is perhaps their finest and strongest Thrash tour de force so far but it's you who will ultimately decide. Personally, I was floored by this record.
