HellgardeN : “Making Noise, Living Fast” Tape & CD & LP 10th April 2020 Brutal Records. Brazil Thrash Metal band.
Music is like a never-ending story, some bands arise and get back your memory in a second. Energy and power is what describes this band the most. The country has brought us some extraordinary Thrashing bands over the decades. I never thought one would recreate the early nineties Thrash Metal sensation that has changed the Metal world for long.
Their first single that became their first video, will get you right in the mood. I remember when in 1991 someone lend me a tape from an unknown band in Europe. That tape made a bomb , the guy was right it would become some powerful band loved by many. That band was Pantera with their “first” album for us “Cowboys” , when they had many albums done before and so got known later with the fame they acquired pretty soon.
HellgardeN reproduced that sound and power we once loved and for some will never leave behind. They released an album that keeps the anger and strength all along, kicking your ass with strong parts and lyrics. It is amazing and they must have played and learned all the song of Pantera to create such an awesome album, although they are closer to “Vulgar..” album THee Thrash album . I’m speechless listening to this mastering of what was an extraordinary guitarist : we named Dime Bag!
Get your fix :
Playing live shows then releasing this pearl , is bringing another explosion to the world. Groove and melodies to punch you in the face. I must say it is surprising. Eight tracks of pure violence to rip your soul apart. Some may hate them cos they sound so good, but most will love them for giving credits to a band we will never forget, nor its musicians.
We can wish them long life and keep the flame to bring other awesome albums. This is not original at all but damn this is so good! You can get this masterpiece in many format but honestly the best way is to own one of the CD ,LP or cassette! A must have 96/100.
