Cobolt 60 are a two-man Black/Thrash Metal project from Norway, having Død on guitar and bass and Mr. Hustler on vocals and drums. They've been around since 2000, but only have two albums to their name, this one coming out in 2012 and being their most recent album to date. Can't say I knew what to expect when I picked this up, but I found myself being surprised with how much I liked it. The basic sound is something like a thrashier, more straightforward version of early Immortal, focused on keeping the pedal firmly to the metal while occasionally slowing down on songs like "The Return of Theia" for more mid-paced, Celtic Frost inspired stomping. I wouldn't call this a mandatory listen, but this ravenous, bloodthirsty album is sure to appeal to the masses of Blackened Thrash fans out there, and considering this is all just two guys, that's a pretty damn respectable thing to do. Worth tracking down.
