Mutant Squad-Titanomakhia

Now THIS is thrash metal at its finest. A lot of modern thrash metal bands lack the sheer rage that makes groups like Death Angel (Seeing them Sunday!) so good. Mutant Squad are here to fix that, with a sound filled with hatred, power, and raw heavy metal malice. Sure these guys can be a little loose on the edges, but thats part of the appeal, crazy, unadulterated thrash metal from the abyss, Mutant Squad aren't here to make friends, they are here to stick your head on a pike. There is no escape from the might of Titanomakhia it just keeps on coming!

The sheer heaviness and insane attack of this record becomes even more impressive when you discover Mutant Squad are but a trio, suddenly, they remind me of early Revocation. Seriously, the rage is here, it is all very technical, and there are often some prog elements. Obviously there are differences in some of the core aspects of the sound, but that is really the only way to describe this band. Mutant Squad prove with Titanomakhia not only that they are stellar thrash metal musicians, but they could very well be Europe's response to Revocation. Looser, more violent, and perhaps more likely to be bathed in blood, Mutant Squad play their part well. 

So, if you want to check out one of the fastest rising European metal acts then put your thrash hat on and get ready to dive into the pit. Titanomakhia is violent and it knows it. Rising out of the deeps with a rapid and unforgettable thrash sound that will soon rip out your juggular this is a wonderful look into a band who seem destined to succeed. I for one love their breaking apart at the seams and hectic attack, their dedication to brutality is hard to match, and I can't stop my head from banging. Thrashers one and all, go out and buy this record, you will not regret it!
