Blood Tsunami
Thrash Metal
July 2007
Released: 2007, Nocturnal Art Productions
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: Waspman

The land of black metal, Norway, has given birth to a vicious thrash machine! Yes, as if the presumptuous album title didn’t give it away, Blood Tsunami’s debut disc is an action-packed thrash affair looking to kick your ass. Though the band is relatively new (formed in 2004), they have instant pedigree, as former Emperor/Thorns drummer Faust is in the ranks.

Once inside the spectacular Ken Kelly-esque cover art, Blood Tsunami immediately crushes you with “Evil Unleashed” – a full on thrash attack that serves notice that they’re not messing around. As will become the norm throughout the album, the song sticks to a mostly mid-paced to fast speed, rarely revving the engines to full-speed ahead. That could easily get monotonous, but luckily Blood Tsunami learned a few things from the thrash masters of yesteryear and have filled THRASH METAL with some fine, catchy riffs. Hell, even the 10-minute instrumental, “Godbeater” is keeps my attention with one of the most engaging theme riffs on the album.

As required for thrash metal, the performances are spot-on, yet spontaneous enough to let you believe that things may fly off the rails at any moment. Even the veteran, Faust bashes the hell out of his drums in a suitably wild, drunken performance.

All in all, there isn’t much more to say. THRASH METAL lives up to its name, and proves that Blood Tsunami will be a name to watch in the coming years. Welcome aboard guys, may you conquer many a stage before you are done.
