This is some pretty good Thrash Metal from Mexico. Piraña's second album, Corruption, is textbook Thrash without any artificial or superfluous elements. These Mexicans make it sound easy to churn out simple, up-tempo and stress-free Crossover-tinged Thrash Metal. They possess a "let's-party-a-bit" attitude that it makes you wonder how great they must look and sound in a live situation. They seem like a very passionate and determined bunch.

It should come as no surprise that Bay Area Thrash features prominently in Piraña's sound with some Crossover ingredients, à la D.R.I. and Crumbsuckers, adding more testosterone-oozing power to their cavalcade of Metal thrashing fun. Highly energetic, frenzied, a bit progressive, at times, and kind of intoxicated Thrash is what Piraña are offering on this 9-track disc. It reminds me of Death Angel's Frolic Through the Park, here and there, and also hearkens back to Tankard's early days in some peculiar way (minus Tankard's trademark all-night beer drinking festivities). I am certain many of you, especially the old school Thrash Metal (or Crossover) fans, will get a lot of guilty pleasure from Piraña's Corruption. If not, you'll need to have your ears checked.
