ENTRENCH “Inevitable Decay”

ENTRENCH
“Inevitable Decay”
(Abyss)
Just as the second wave of thrash differed from the first, thrash metal in 2011 isn’t the same as it was in 2001 or 1991. Even though many would like you to think so. While thrash never really made it big with the Swedish bands in the 80s and 90s there are today a ton of new thrash metal bands popping up all over the place. Entrench is one of them. Looking at the cover you’d be forgiven for thinking that this is some old school kind of thing. Hearing the music you know that this is pretty much old school thrash metal with a German clang to it. This is like hearing Kreator’s debut album for the first time. The nostalgia alone would not have saved this from a brutal slaying had it not been a pleasant experience. “Inevitable Decay” turned out to be another fine example of old school thrash metal done the 21st century way.
