With a name like Drastic Solution and an album title like Thrashers, one knows what to expect, right? I thought so, too...

The wine-drinking Italians in Drastic Solution just formed the band two years ago and Thrashers is their 11-track debut release. Fast and furious Thrash Metal, with a very small touch of Crossover, is what this is (they remind me slightly of young Finnish thrashers Lost Society, without as serious an attempt to kill sonically, though) and the question for them is; did you forget how to write some decent Thrash Metal? Nothing against them but, unfortunately, you get the feeling very quickly that once you have heard one song from this band, you have heard them all. The songs lack any punch that would make them stand out and they sound nearly identical to each other, which is a pity.

True, Drastic Solution can absolutely thrash and Thrashers would work as a nice debut demo, but that's about it. Unfortunately, this is their debut full-length studio album and it does not satisfy my need for a well-crafted and interesting Thrash Metal. Better luck next time.
