Project Pain : ” Brothers In Blood” CD & Digital 20th January 2018 FA records. Netherlands Thrash Metal band. Started in 2011 they are already releasing their third album that has everything Thrash Metal is about and will please all the fans of the genre. Starting with an awesome gore like cover artwork album reminding Ed Repka style… With for the zombie movie fans reminds the last normal people killing the transformed cannibals ones. You will notice that the two individuals are the musicians of this band (I assume the other three ones got killed, or escaped inside the leaflet ah ah). Their second album “Thrashed to kill” had the awesome Josh Christian from Toxik as a solo guest artist , and now on this new album Dennis Smeekes is the solo guest. So expect some serious solos with blasting songs. Of course guests are just the little sugar touch on this awesome album but it gives a high point to the band.
I must say that listening to this album just reminds me all the awesome albums this style has brought and we can thank Project Pain to keep the roots alive. The title album track “Brothers in Blood” is just the perfect song to keep the metal heads united and tells well this music style has still its power. With only few years and few albums we can easily hear those guys know the job well. It is perfect and they will blast your ears for years. They have a slight touch at some point from Death Metal parts and the main line is blasting heavy kicking your ass riffs from the beginning to the end. Ten tracks of pure pleasure from songs such as “Eternal Flames” to “I don’t give a Fuck” you will mosh and headbang like mad asking for more.
What makes this band so good is the influences they are spreading regrouping many bands such as Exodus, Heathen, Evil Dead, Pitiful Reign, Vio-lence,Slayer, Death…in just spilling out from their music and it will get you to your blood if you are a true fan of those bands. Cool lyrics that speak to you for sure, and goes well with the kind of music they play.
