I could imagine if Lemmy's son, Paul Inder, had chosen to play in a Thrash Metal band, it probably would have sounded close to this Italian three-piece outfit named Violentor. Formed in 2009, the band has released three studio albums thus far, of which their latest is called Maniacs.

Violentor's punky, crust-oozing, simple and angst-ridden straightforward Thrash Metal definitely offers good company for booze-filled nights in which your favorite Metal DJ has decided to play such bands like Motörhead, Venom, Sodom, Bones, Sarcófago, Bulldozer, Usurper and the like, nonstop. Maniacs is the kind of record that sounds all so familiar to most of us, especially if you have ever liked bands like Motörhead and Venom. Hell, even Violentor's vocalist, Dog (a.k.a. Alessio "Cane" Medici), sounds deceptively much like a younger version of Mr. Kilmister himself, which is very cool.

But at the end of the day, there's nothing too surprising to be found from Maniacs. The album is honest, raw but good-sounding, filthy and violent fun that mostly serves people with a true "Fuck-You!" mentality who like to enjoy their Metal simple, punky and loaded with the right attitude. Are you one of them? If so, then just go for it!
