(7/10) Thinking about thrash metal and Brazil it is first of all Sepultura that comes to ones mind. But if we look back in time there have been more bands in the late 80's / early 90's that started with oldschool thrash metal. Next to Sepultura it was Executer, Sarcófargo and Korzus that released records which gave them more international attention.
Korzus is still in business after 30 years and has been in the studio to work on their seventh full-length release. "Legions" is now out in the stores and delivers thirteen thrash songs.
"Legions" contains classic thrash metal. Compared to Sepultura they haven't changed their music a lot. It is 'right to the point' oldschool metal. A musical wrecking ball that reminds to the 'good old times'. Maybe it is not very innovative music, but it is highly entertaining.
My favorites on the album are the grooving "Broken" with the aggressive shouted chorus and the spoken words parts. But also the blazing fast "Lamb" leads to some excitemnet. It's a two minutes aural assault that doesn't take any prisoners. It sounds like a mean hybrid of thrash and hardcore. And last but not least it is the mighty "Time has come" with the haevy riff, the galloping rhythm and the immense power when it comes to vocals.
The songs got a full and dynamic production. It is oldschool music in modern production appearance.
I enjoyed listening to the album. It makes fun and gives you a good time. A recommendation for all oldschool thrashers.
