EXENCE “Tabula Rasa”

EXENCE
“Tabula Rasa”
(Punishment18)
There are some band names that you instantly get a feeling for. EXENCE got me thinking thrash metal the first time that I saw it. There is that aura about the name that screams thrash metal. I could be wrong (which I’ve been too many times to remember) but I don’t think so. It did start on a promising note. And it continued that way. This is the kind of thrash that is borderline the harder stuff while not really crossing that border. So if you think you hear traces of death and hardcore you might not be too off the track. But most of all this is some pretty cool metal. If you like your metal early Kreator hard or think that Machine Head’s debut could have been even harder, then this album is for you. Anders Ekdahl
