Down to the Wire

Rated 3.5/5 (70%) (8 Votes)

Thrash Metal; you have to love those two words, not to mention Spanish thrashers Vivid Remorse, whose second album, Down to the Wire, was released in 2012. Vivid Remorse have a fresh approach to their sound, as they combine some bits of Hardcore and even Death Metal with their semi-aggressive, modern Thrash Metal. Late-era Sepultura as well as later Slayer and Machine Head can be heard on the record, things that may give an indication as to the ages of these Spanish fellows. What I like about Vivid Remorse is that they at least attempt to sound different and are not just content with ballsy, ripping Thrash. They have been brave enough to push the envelope by ending the album with the near-ballad, "The Never Falling Cries." They seem to have no fear of crossing musical genres every now and then.

No matter what others may think, Vivid Remorse is good at what they do and all this fresh energy and semi-innovation makes the band's sound lovable, indeed.
