This advance cassette comes to me, once again, from Foundations Forum. Ok, that's cool and all, but the downside is that I know absolutely nothing about this band, and I still know squat because of the fact that no information was included with the cassette. However, I did get a feel for this band's music, and what I heard didn't move me very much. The first track on this teaser is "Caged & Shackled". It starts off in a very old-school thrash vein, and generally keeps the same tone throughout the song. The vocals here are a cheap attempt at duplicating the most inimitable throat in existence, namely Rob Halford's. The simplistic thrash beats brought memories of Overkill to mind, with a dash of NWOBHM thrown in for good measure. Lead work abounds everywhere on this release as is the usual norm for this brand of metal. The second track, "Murder I", doesn't establish a noticeable difference between it and the previous track, but nonetheless it is a pretty good number. Vocals here vary a bit between the Halford style, and a deeper, heavier yell. I don't really know what to think of this tape, but I don't think that these guys will make it in the biz today playing this kind of metal.
