Rated 4/5 (80%) (6 Votes)
Chevalier is a Finnish band that plays an old school style of speedy thrash, complete with an 80s sound to the production on their EP A Call to Arms, which is getting a vinyl re-release courtesy of Gates of Hell Records. The vocals are way back in the mix and feature several high-pitched wails that along with the general speed of the songs reminds me of early Agent Steel. I've always found that style of ear-piercing vocals to be an acquired taste, but they are done quite well if that is your thing. I can't say any of the songs really stands out, so A Call to Arms doesn't have a lot of staying power but it is certainly fun while it is on. Definitely one for thrash fans to check out as it brings back a time when the style wasn't as formulaic as it came to be by the late 80s.
