Broken Faith

Rated 4.17/5 (83.33%) (12 Votes)

Broken Faith is the debut EP from Brazilian Heavy/Thrash band Slasher. Blackened Thrash seems a more apt description to my ears as Slasher employs harsh vocals throughout Broken Faith, much like Destroy Destroy Destroy, et al. The songs on Broken Faith are uniformly old school 80s style Thrash with staccato riffing played at a mid to fast pace. The band's performances are excellent, but the songs are not very original. There isn't really anything here to differentiate Slasher from a hundred other bands playing this style. Actually, that isn't completely true. On the last track, "Tormento Ou Paz," Slasher revert from English to their (presumably) native Portuguese, slow down the pace a bit, and unleash a vicious groove to underscore the most memorable and, dare I say, catchy, chorus (dare! dare!) I found myself looking forward to this last song every time I played Broken Faith.

I hope Slasher is able to capture the vibe of "Tormento Ou Paz" for their next release. It would go along way to separate Slasher from the pack. In the meantime we have Broken Faith, a well executed but slightly dull offering.
