Terrifier-Destroyers of the Faith

Born in fire in 2012 Terrifier is a powerful thrash metal band who incorporate a power metal sensibility into their heavy and high energy brand of thrash. Their new album Destroyers of the Faith is a testament to the greatness of thrash metal. Featuring a heavy Megadeth influence Terrifier have a mighty sound filled with intricate guitar fills that are oftentimes reminiscent of Dave Mustaines work on Rust in Peace. Destructive and filled with impressively heavy riffs this set of 8 tracks is a wonderful block of thrash metal that should appeal to thousands of fans across the globe. At once accessible and very technical this group seem ready to take their music to a whole new level.

I have to say that the most impressive part of this record for me are the solos. They give the record a terrifying energy and really make tracks like the eponymous Destroyers of the Faith truly special. They add a taste of Dragonforce to the mix and I think that this needs to be noted. It takes the band to a whole new level of thrash metal might. Toss in some explosive riffs reminiscent of Overkillor even Iced Earth and you have yourself an impressive block of metal. Clearly the result of some excellent songwriting, Destroyers of the Faith is a very tasty record. The solos alone make this blazing record worth many a listen.

In short, Terrifier are a band defined by their hard hitting sound and their incredible solos. I might even go so far as to say that Terrifier have some of the best solos in modern thrash metal. They just flow with the music and give it so much more depth. With a guitar duo who seem destined to go down in the annals of metal history Terrifier are capable of becoming huge fast. If you're looking for some thrash that will blow your mind with its technical sensibilities then you have come to the right place, Terrifier will burst your brain and force it back together with the power of their twin guitarists.
