Brazil, the promised land of Thrash Metal, has always had a lot to offer. This time we get to better know this band called Overthrash, one of two Thrash Metal bands named Overthrash; both from Brazil.

This Overthrash comes from Bauru, São Paulo, and are the only one that still exists. After a handful of demo songs, all recorded between 1988 and 1991, these Brazilian thrashers reformed in 2014 and recorded enough material for a full-length album that features three old demo tracks and four new ones. Overthrash plays the kind of old-school Thrash that's entertaining to say the least. Obviously, they did not reform to invent the whole Thrash Metal genre all over again but took their time to rekindle the spirit flames of some old and great names again, in which such names as Slayer, Exodus, Razor, Metallica, Sepultura and the likes all play an important role.

So yeah, the dais is conquered by Overthrash's take on playing their Thrash in the honest, straightforward, old-school way, without any gimmicks. They demonstrate that they appreciate the traditions of the old-school Thrash Metal sound, and they do it well and in a sufficiently respectable way. Thrash this is, and it is tastefully done. Do you possibly need more?
