The Finnish version of NY-Thrash pioneers Nuclear Assault is back with four new nuclear missiles aimed at you. Last Ones to Survive, this brand-new four-track demo from Radux, continues where they left off on their three-song demo in 2014.

These young thrashers mix Thrash Metal with some Hardcore-Punk attitude, and the result is very close to Nuclear Assault's early times. Whether they want to sound like their "big brothers" on purpose or not, they get instantly associated with Nuke's material. It's simply unavoidable to make these comparisons between these two sheer-attitude and radioactivity-oozing acts. Songs like "Radioactive Dawn" and the title track simply ooze Nuclear Assault-ism to the max.

I don't want to take anything away from the Radux camp, but where Nuclear Assault hit like 10,000 kilowatts – hard and definitely lethally on the band's early releases – Radux's attempt to wipe humans away from the face of the earth makes me smile, but not in any mischievous or shitty way. They sound very energetic, Duracell bunny-active, punky-aggressive and are loaded with the right and fitting attitude to offer plenty of sheer entertainment for the Metal-loving audience. I bet seeing Radux live would undoubtedly be a true blast, as their relentless aggression obviously correlates well with their energetic and vivid performance. Meanwhile, especially if being a fan of Nuke's early works, check Radux out – or be prepared to get nuked to dust!
