If thrash is dead, Psykopath did not get the message. The young thrashers from Norway have a retro sound, but they aren’t just rehashing Metallica and Nuclear Assault songs with less personality. While they were obviously inspired by Metallica and other thrash titans, their Primal Instinct EP is a little groovier and heavier than those who came before.
Of course, the Metallica comparisons aren’t off base, and the band probably intended to have a similar sound, given that Primal Instinct was miexed by Flemming Rasmussen, who handled that same duty on Master of Puppets, Ride the Lightning and …And Justice for All. Check out new song “Armageddon” below to see what I mean.
