I am a bit ashamed to say that I did not support THANATOS the proper way back in the 80s/90s. I was aware of them and the demos and albums they released but for one reason or another I choose to support other Dutch metal of that era. I am still looking forward to hearing this new album. it has been six years since we last saw and album from this classic Dutch metal band. Since I haven’t paid any attention to them since the 80s/90s it is a bit surprising to hear that they are this brutal. This is to me much more death than it is thrash. Perhaps a more correct description would be deathrash. What I do know is that this new album appealed to me in more ways than one. In a way it brought back memories of the good old time. This is brutal stuff. Heavy as hell and with a punch that hits you hard in the guts. I didn’t really have any greater expectations on this one but it did manage to surprise me. A nice one.
