Distrust is another one of those bands that I heard on a sampler and wanted to do an in depth review of. They are also from the northeast US and they also play a form of thrash metal. Unlike fellow label mates Disdain however this is not groove oriented. This is unadulterated thrash metal with a few hardcore influences thrown in here and there.

This band has a lot of really catchy riffs with more than few riff changes thrown in to make things more interesting. This is another band that you can definitely hear the bay area influence in. The vocals are your basic thrash metal vocals not too harsh but not clean either. The tone of the vocals is very angry and aggressive just what you would hope for in a good thrash album. I am not sure how many people are doing vocal duties on this album but I can tell there are at the very least two. I think they would be better served by sticking to one or the other. I find it a little distracting having two vocal styles going at the same time if they are both harsh. One is just higher than the other and I think that takes a little away from the album.

I have to admit though musically this is a very strong album from start to finish and another band that I will be looking forward to hearing more from in the future. Fans of the bay area sound give these guys a listen as well at Highly Recommended.
