Schizophrenia saw the light of day in 2016 and have since gained a reputation as one of the most promising bands in the Belgian scene. That clout is probably what inspired them to release their debut EP Voices in a lavish collection of colored vinyls along with the expected digital, CD, and even cassette formats. Says a lot about the faith they put in their music to release it the way a bigger label would.

But enough about formats and marketing, let's get to the music. These lads work in that vein of face-ripping Death/Thrash that bands like Morbid Saint and Demolition Hammer perfected decades ago, and they do it about as well as they did. All five songs on this EP are relentless outbursts of violence packed with skull smashing riffs, precise playing, and deceptively detailed songwriting that put acts on big name labels to shame. If you want face-melting Death/Thrash done the old way like early Sepultura and Slayer used to, then you need to give this band your immediate attention.
