Crossover thrashers Foreseen have only been around since 2010 but especially in their home country these five Finnish lads have created quite a fuss mainly due to their violence-oozing, highly energetic and raging concerts.

Helsinki Savagery could not be any more fitting a title for their debut album. All 10 tracks ooze primitive aggression and friendly, violent fun. One can spot influences from early Slayer, the crossover (not album) era D.R.I., early Nuclear Assault, Crumbsuckers and early Anthrax and it is as if all of these names were put through a blender. Foreseen thrashes on their debut with a clear focus and attitude to grind posers down with ferocious Thrash/Crossover outbursts and, holy cow, do they do a convincing job. Vocalist Mirko Nummelin reminds me of Mem von Stein of Exumer in an odd way, not a bad thing by any means. I don’t know how many energy drinks one need pour down his throat to sound this fucking crazy but Foreseen are simply loaded with enormous amounts of high-octane energy. They are one of the most convincing Thrash/Crossover bands of this millennium that I’ve come across.

Foreseen will rip your heart out, not gently but brutally and with an immense, violent passion. Add some Helsinki Savagery to your day, preferably now!
