Blood Tsunami - Thrash Metal
C’mon, you gotta love a band that wallows in its thrash imagery. As if the band’s name wasn’t enough, we have titles like "Godbeater," "Infernal Final Carnage," and Rampage of Revenge," to bring it all back home. Norwegian thrash featuring Bard Eithun from Emperor evokes the powers of darkness and gay leather club fashion to kick it metal like mother used to make. While the clichés are high and mighty, the record is saved by the gritty beast of a rhythm section, and by the sheets of shredding guitar. Candlelight releases so many metal records every month that it is hard to keep up with them; while there are a few duds in the pile, this is not one of them. BT threaten to jump the shark, but in the end they just stomp on it righteously.

Blood Tsunami's debut release, "Thrash Metal", is pretty much summed up by it's title. The band makes no qualms in wearing their influences on their sleeves, choosing to recreate some of the fiery thrash metal that was so big in it's 80's heyday. You'll be reminded of titans of the genre like Testament, Slayer, and even early Metallica at times. "Thrash Metal" doesn't have any necessarily "bad" tracks, but it is quite easy to tire from listening to the album about 3/4 of the way, simply because of the lack of variation. This will appeal to just about any metal fan I think, thrash or otherwise, but especially to those older 'heads still stuck on the glory days of thrash's past.
