First Blood

Rated 3/5 (60%) (2 Votes)

Portugal's Speedemon are a Thrash band that employs rough vocals and a lot of speed (hence the band name) so what you get is something not unlike the German Thrash of Kreator, Sodom and Destruction. First Blood is the band's debut EP and it squeezes four tracks into a tidy 14:46 so the band gets you in and out without delay. I can't say I hear anything original nor can I honestly say I could tell you one track from the next even though I've listened to it multiple times. However, while it is on, my feet are tapping and the air guitar is never too far away. So you've got a pretty good performance but material that isn't at the same level. With some better songs, this band could be a force.
