Rated 3.86/5 (77.14%) (7 Votes)

I reviewed albums by both these bands last year and liked them quite a bit, so I had to jump on this split even though I knew it’d be too short. One song each, and these guys aren’t into epics, so here’s a seven minute of hellish black/thrash for you.

Bunker 66 present "Pandemonial Storms" which is the heaviest and borderline slowest of the two songs here (barely) and with a vocal style that reminds me of a mix of early ‘80s raw thrash and when Darkthrone started using cleaner vocals. It’s really just raw black/thrash with a strong old-school vibe. Catchy and fun with a dark vibe.

Hellcrash present "Hell Breaks Loose" and continue in their style that could be described as early Venom on steroids—and those vocals freakishly sound like Cronos’. The song is really fast and sometimes you have to pay attention to tell things apart, but it’s a hell of a lot of fun and, should a mosh pit form at a live gig, some may not come out of it alive. Needless to say, this is really old school, even more so than the Bunker 66 track.
