„Let there be Thrash“ – was the tagline for a loud and raucous night at Escape Metal Corner last night in Vienna.
Five international thrash metal bands provided the thunder that made the audience sweat, shake and bang their heads like there was no tomorrow.
Getting lost in the moshpit did not improve my pictures at all!
But it gave me the spirit of metal. Yeah!
opened the evening, caught the audience by its balls and filled the venue with their prophecy of „For the Loud and the Aggressive!“ Their blend of Austrian Thrash and Speed Metal feels inspired by bands like Destruction, Kreator, Sodom and Stormwarrior.
hailing all the way from Athens, Greece nominated for #16th best thrash metal album in 2013 by Thrash Eaters Magazine. Aleksis Papatheofanous, leadsinger of the band seemed to hypnotize the crowd in front of him, leading them to every metal fans paradise – Loud and heavy fulfillment of dreamy thrash sounding like it came straight from the 80’s.
the young Fins didn’t seem as cold as i thought, their veins must be pumping hot steaming metal. As they said they will be conquering Europe throughout this tour and thus their stint in Vienna yesterday evening was an excellent opportunity to make good on that promise. They showcased songs from their debut album “Fast Loud Death“. Fun Fact: Finland has the highest density of metal bands per capita in the world!
from California sure are masters of their trade. They were my personal zenith of the evening, with an incredible drummer and impressive guitar licks they broadened my horizon of Thrash Metal. No wonder they are supported by a steadily increasing legion of fans all over the world.
presented over a decade of Metal and Thrash experience to the well prepared audience. The density of fans wearing Suicidal Angels shirts was high and right in the middle of them i got pushed around like a ball during a game table soccer. The moshpit was awesome, I had fun, so there are less pictures. The band cited Slayer, Sepultura and Dark Angel as their influences but it seems like it won’t be long until Sepultura will announce Suicidal Angels as their influence.
