Vocalist and bassist Rafael Barba, guitarist Gustavo Salles, and drummer Marco Mingote have a lot of history together playing in a Thrash Metal band called Stupid Vision (hey, that's a pretty stupid name for a Thrash Metal band, isn't it?). Stupid Vision even released one album titled Watch Your Steps in 2000, which only received a little attention. The band split up eight years later.

In 2013 the same fellows put together a new band, named Godzorder, which is also run by Thrash Metal charged batteries. For the position of second guitar, they added a guy named André Fernandes – and were ready to thrash seriously again.

This foursome's debut outing is a five-track EP titled Obey, which musically offers somewhat fresh-sounding Thrash Metal, reminiscent of later-era Exodus, partly Spanish thrashers Angelus Apatrida, partly later-era Onslaught – and then totally something else that I really cannot put my finger that on. Godzorder plays candidly and skillfully – and with exceptionally heavy hands – having lots of sheer grooviness. The band's Thrash Metal is finely crispy and is played very in a thoroughly enjoyable way. Obey has so much potential that it may well bring some label interest to Godzorder. The band has a good thing going on within their Thrash, and what may even help to reach their ultimate goal to get signed is vocalist Rafael's similarity to a cross between Sy Keeler (Onslaught) and Steve 'Zetro' Souza (Exodus).

So, by all means, check Obey out if you are a Thrash Metal fan. These Brazilian maniacs will rip your face off with their ripping, neck muscle-tormenting Thrash.
