I just now realized that I have this band's The Final Assault full-length on vinyl, though it's one of those albums I never gave due attention due to lack of time. For now, this new EP will have to do. :) Victimizer is a Danish Thrash band that plays it speedy and raw, with vocals that are half way between harsh Thrash vocals and Black Metal rasps – mostly decipherable if you pay close attention. This is raw and basic Thrash, no prettified corners for amateurs of clean Thrash to be found here. You get a good dose of abrasive riffage that's slow and heavy when it's not in high speed mode, and for the most part pretty damn catchy, in a dark and vile way. The vocals are particularly notable here, as really they feel like another instrument and the vocal lines simply kick ass – not something you usually expect from harsher styles, but here the vocal lines are most often just as catchy as the music.

Victimizer are definitely not inventing anything here – it's raw and dirty old school Thrash, but it's done pretty damn well (unless you're one of those kids who bitch about all Thrash albums released after they were born, but let's not go there, it wouldn't be pretty.) Simply put, this is a fucking cool EP and I hope Victimizer have another full-length in the oven.
