Thrash Metal is a wonderful thing whenever it's executed in an entertaining and convincing way, the way these four relentless Chilean thrashers have done it on their second album, titled Under Bio-lence.

Conflicted, which have been around since 2007 (from 2007 to 2010 they operated under the Vulgar moniker), are a great example of how Thrash Metal should be done. It's fast and furious, it's addictive and it slays – and first and foremost, it offers a lot of fun for some Thrash parties. Without question, Conflicted are heavily influenced by the mid 80s Bay Area Thrash Metal scene, especially by such names as Vio-lence and Death Angel. This is accompanied by some truly rebellious gang-shout vocals along with Hardcore/Punk edge and shit that simply oozes all kinds of youthful, extra-charged aggression, making you to want to break the law. Conflicted don't concentrate on playing their Thrash as horribly fast as the Vio-camp; they also want to gently rip your fucking face off by spontaneous-sounding heavy riff barrages that at times also have an almost Venom-punky element. Made you curious about them already? Thought so... 

The bottom line is Conflicted have lots of sheer kickass value to them. Just check out Under Bio-lence, and after doing so come back to tell me I told you the absolute truth about this wonderful Thrash disc. Some really excellent stuff here, which you shouldn't pass by without checking it out first.
