here is one song from their page :
Ten songs of power , melodies and emotions. If some parts may refer to other bands such as Flotsam and Jetsam or even Iron Maiden they aren’t in the same vein. Thrust has it’s own sound and style. It is true Heavy Metal and we can only love it to death.
“Blood In The Sky” , “Still Alive” , “Ghost in Me” .. Each song has a magic feel that empowers the album to be loved. The last song has a special vibe as Eric kind of modify his voice in the way of extreme bands do…Maybe a hint for another album or simply to give the title a special feel for the lyrics.
A brilliant album with no surprise, a must have for every Metal fans 100/100.
