As the album title suggests, a dose of Thrash Metal can be expected.
Spain has had a promising Thrash Metal scene for a long time but I think within the last 3-5 years it has really bloomed nicely. One of the freshest fruits from the scene is this 5-piece band called Lethal Vice from a town called Vigo.
Thrash Converters is Lethal Vice's debut album and I must admit it did not leave me cold. It's basically Metallica's Kill 'em All/Ride the Lightning era mixed with some of Nuclear Assault's more hardcore and punk assaults. Another band they reminded me of specifically is the new Thrash Metal masters from Norway, Tantara. In other words, Lethal Vice should quickly grab a well-earned slice of the Thrash Metal pie.
The band is full of energy and dedication and it helps that they stay true to the production values of the past meaning there's nothing over-polished in Lethal Vice's sound. The album has crisp and raw sound, like an old school Thrash Metal record, which is a definite plus. Vocalist Charly has a similar angst and "I-don't-give-a-fuck" attitude in his voice to the one Mr. Hetfield used to have when he was just beyond puberty.
Thrash Converters brings back some of the values that were once so essential and important in Thrash Metal 30 years ago. You need to check them out if you consider yourself a true, old school Thrash Metal maniac!
