CD review HOTROD MAYHEM EP

Veröffentlicht am 14. August 2013 von Markus W. in Hotrod Mayhem, CD Review, Thrash Metal, Hardcore

This EP is not new. It was released in 2011, but it hardly haven't got any attention. I got this record a few weeks ago and I have to say that I was impressed. Hotrod Mayhem is actually a side project of Michael from Dryrot and Joschi from Undertow. The 5 songs are all pretty heavy and are thrash and hardcore influenced.

The opener "Slaves" is the best song. The zrack has a great groove combined with heavyness and a great chrous. Listened once, never forgotten. You just can't stand still by listening to that song. The other 4 songs are great as well even though they can't keep the level of the opener. But they are also above average.

i just wonder what happened to the band and if we can expect more. Would be great.
