Regular visitors of our review department may remember the name Facínora... No? Fine, let me briefly recap what you missed:
This is where we left last time... which was about two years ago. In the meantime the band didn't change gear at all and still sounds exactly the same: up-tempo and old school as fuck. Nothing wrong with that, albeit that in those two years the resurgence of retro-thrash bloomed. Nowadays playing old school thrash metal is no longer an automatic win in most people's books - absurd as it may be.
There is no jury in the world that will convict the band for being too original, or too sophisticated, or too straight-forward. So if you can get past the whole "rehashing old ideas" thing, there's actually a more than enjoyable release waiting for you - especially if you're more of a newcomer to the genre.
Hell Is Here is a straight-up thrash release, alright. A return to the core strengths of the genre... and thus perhaps a tad too safe for purists. But as long as it's well-executed, there shouldn't be any problem with reviving the old school spirit.
And that's about all that needs to be said, really. If you're interested in good retro-thrash, I'm sure you're checking this band out by now. If not, go play in traffic.
