I have to admit that I hate mose of what constitutes what is called ‘thrash metal’. It is boring, repetitive in a lame way, and the vocals tend to sound like the Cookie Monster suffering from a bad bout of diarrhea.
This, however, struck me as being a bit different.
My friend, Mark, who has been trading notes on music with me for over two decades, insisted that I hear this band. Knowing I had nothing to lose, I figured, “Sure, why not?” Transmetal is impressive. A lot of racket, but it seems focused, and very intense. Apparently, they also cover Motörhead, which wins big points from me.
A band to look out for.
