First, let's get the basic facts straight about the history of this band. Mad Dragzter is a Brazilian Thrash Metal band that was formed in 1998, and since then have recorded three full-length albums. Master of Space and Time is their latest album, which was released on the Brazilian label Die Hard Records at the end of August 2015.
Mad Dragzter fortunately tries to do something a little bit different music-wise than many of their other thrashers in crime. These Brazilians' main emphasis musically is to play very riff-based Thrash, but the way they do it is pretty unique, unorthodox and exceptional sounding, which I always appreciate. The playing is precise and top-notch, and Tiogo Torres on vocals and guitar doesn't hesitate to stretch his vocal range whenever it's needed. At times he sounds like a perfect guy to fill in an empty slot in some Heavy or Power Metal band. Also, he often sounds like a combination of Mr. Hetfield of Metallica and Matt Drake of Evile, which works well within the band's very open-minded and sweetly experimental Thrash Metal. Early Metallica has obviously been a huge influence on these guys. There are a lot of aggressive and similar riffs used on Master of Space and Time that one can find from Metallica's first three albums. For Mad Dragzter, credit must be given in that they have also employed Metallica's past works well.
Nearly 64 minutes of music is still a bit too much for a Thrash Metal album. They should have released another album instead of packaging all these 15 songs in one album. But that's pretty much the only complaint I can come up with analyzing this otherwise very enjoyable third album from these Brazilian thrashers.
