Australia’s best young thrash band, Hellbringer, have finally put out their debut album, entitled “Dominion of Darkness”.
If you’ve heard their previous self-titled EP, then you should already have an idea what to expect; no frills, evil sounding thrash metal that salutes old-school bands such as early Sodom, Kreator, Slayer, Possessed, Venom and the like. If you haven’t heard the EP, well I just told you what to expect!
“Dominion of Darkness” is pure thrash metal fury, catchier than the clap and heavier than hell. The musicianship is tighter than a virgin and the sound itself is totally classic, having been mastered by the one and only Harris Johns. Songs like “Dominion of Darkness”, “Deceiver’s Chamber”, “Necromancer’s Return”, “Bell of the Antichrist” and “Hellbringer” will stick in your head for days.
If you’re looking for originality and innovation, you won’t find it here, but, if you’re after a good time and some killer tunes, Hellbringer provides this in spades.
