Thrall – “Vermin To The Earth”

Thrall
“Vermin To The Earth”
(Moribund Records)

Yeah, Australia certainly has its fair share of verminous creatures – and the duo of Thrall are no exception. As bizarre and lethal as their Antipodean wildlife, Thrall is like a throwback to a primordial age, playing mid tempo blackish metal with just enough off the wall riffs on songs like ‘Oblivion’, ‘Disease’s Maiming Caress’ and ‘Ecstasy not of the Flesh’ to make them anarchic affairs that are both absorbing as well as being different. Add to this the underground production, feedback and reverb and we’re almost straying into ‘noise’ territory but hey, Thrall work a treat for me in killing those basement rats LOL!
