Rated 2.5/5 (50%) (2 Votes)

Brazil's Thorny Woods is like a little trip back to the late 90s/early 2000s when most popular non-symphonic Scandinavian Black Metal was anything between Marduk and Dark Funeral: A loud, heavy, fast, furious and aggressive cacophony of instruments played to their limits (yeah well, one can play faster, but you get the idea.) This short demo, however, is not just some mindless collection of songs played at full speed. Throughout this musical chaos, the band has created an effective dark and menacing atmosphere that's halfway between satanic and a nuclear apocalypse. They even found time to take a little acoustic break here and there, but barely long enough for the listener to catch his breath. There are some keyboards but barely noticeable. The vocalist is an excellent match, with raspy BM vocals that somehow manage to find their way through the barrage of instruments. A very short demo that leaves you begging for more.
