I guess this Liechtenstein-based Thrash Metal band that I have ever heard from that country. And when they wear shirts and hoodies sporting such names as Sodom, Ares Kingdom, Evil Invaders, etc., and the walls of their rehearsal space are covered by posters featuring everything from Ronnie James Dio, Dissection, to (half-) naked women, your curiosity more or less goes straight through the roof, doesn't it?

These four thrashing horsemen know how to play old-school Thrash Metal, having adopted kind of a Slayer-esque sound, at least as far as the guitars are concerned (check out "Ancient Genocide" and tell me honestly that the opening riff isn't copied from Slayer's "Chemical Warfare"). The band's Thrash Metal is raw, unfiltered, honest, and lyrically slightly humorous (it's hard to take a song titled "Thrash Metal und Dosabier" too seriously). It all sounds quite fun it's easy to think of a few old-school Thrash Metal bands that ruled so much back in the day.

This is honestly good, violent, and friendly Thrash Metal fun, causing minor neck injuries at best (or worst).
