My first reaction upon seeing this promo land here was, "Great, another band named after a well-known album". Always a risky proposition. The good news is that with Voices, this band can wear the name proudly. It's not the most original thing you'll see, far from it, especially with the death/thrash genre being so crowded these days. But like I often say, originality doesn't matter that much if you make up for it in execution, and these guys really nailed it here. This is unrelenting fast, razor-sharp death/thrash played with pinpoint accuracy while maintaining a bit of a rough edge that adds some brutality to his little onslaught. I would not want to be anywhere near the mosh pit of this stuff being played live. The fast pounding drums are a highlight here, but the melodies and some of those guitar solos are nothing to sneer at either. Time to dust off those air instruments and thrash away. A fun little EP.
