A Swiss band with a Brazilian accent!
In 1992 a legend of Brazilian Thrash Metal called Korzus released what I consider their magnum opus called Mass Illusions trying to follow the footsteps of Sepultura, but the album somewhat received a very peculiar production and it remains as one of the best Thrash Metal albums released in Brazil.
Okey Dokey, so what a Swiss band called Algebra has to do with this fairytale? It’s simple: their album Feed the Ego sounds amazingly the SAME! The production, the vocals, the compositions, the song structures, everything, although in the press release they don’t cite that.
It’s a hell of good thrash metal insanity with excellent songs like Survival Nowadays that has all the traction to make the happiness of the thrashbanger, Prisoner Outdoors with lashings and more lashings of metal insanity and the brutal Necessary Evil, for me the best of the album!
The album is somewhat marred by a ballad called My Shelf, it’s a bad song indeed.
Fortunately they quickly return to form with the brutal Profound Guilt with several passages, phrases and changes of tempos completed with old school soloing, and correct drums fills.
Feed Me More is so true, I love it: insane backbeats all the way make me want to listen to it over and over again!
Egosystem continues the fucking thrash metal binge!
I heard cases of bands that sound like Hellhammer, Venom, Iron Maiden and Metallica but I’ve never heard one that is so identical to Korzus. Even if they deny: DON’T BELIEVE IN THEM!
Feed the Ego is out now on Unspeakable Axe Records
