There are few truths greater in the underground than the fact that Canadians know how to fucking Thrash. The fact I could name examples as far back as the '80s up to the modern day is testament enough for that fact, but for argument's sake, let's go ahead and use Ontarian 5-piece Korrosive and their debut full-length, Kaustic Hordes, as our example today.

Tight, aggressive Thrash that follows the stars of Exodus, Slayer, and Kreator is what these lads have to offer, and they go at it like they're going to war with your eardrums and winning. There's nothing slow or dull going on here, just violent, bone-crushing Thrash with harsh, Mille Petrozza-esque vocals, killer riffs and solos that'd make the unholy trinity of 6-stringers Holt, Hanneman, and King proud, rumbling bass work that's more upfront in the mix than average, and a crisp, heavy production to prop it all up and make this album yet another example of why few do it better than the Canucks. Recommended.
