Wow... Some truly enjoyable and entertaining Thrash Metal here again, only this time coming from Serbia.
Alitor is the name of this four-piece group, and the band has only been in existence for about four or five years. These Serbian thrashers released their three-song EP (titled Embittered) on their own in 2012, and obviously opened some important doors. They are now signed to German label Witches Brew and the first fruit of this cooperation is this eight-song debut album, titled Eternal Depression.
I guess technical Thrash Metal is a fitting enough description about the band's style. Combine such names as Vektor, later-era Death and Angelus Apatrida into one furiously rollin' and thrashin' snowball and you've got a pretty good idea how Alitor sounds. These obviously pretty young lads are amazingly advanced and gifted players, no doubt, and they have made a great debut album full of great songs that steal your attention right off the bat. Their songs are just loaded with tons of untamed energy, limitless aggression and trickiness of a well-trained Thrash Metal act. It requires some talent and hard work just to reach this level of kickassery. My ears are still burning after listening to this opus like one hour ago – and that's always a good sign of something special, right?
Eternal Depression is a truly fine slab of technical Thrash Metal, which is executed well and with enough conviction.
