HELLHOUND demo-CD 2010 (USA)
Program of plate: Circle of trust / As the needle drips / The bleeding edge / Killing spree in 2010

If you dig on various archaeological excavations, it is precisely this HELLHOUND can be considered one of the oldest formations of metal from the USA. Judge for yourself, they were formed in 1981 and behind them there are only a few demos. Then there was a long break and a series of shifts in the composition. Now they have returned with a relatively fresh material in the spirit of HEAVY / SPEED Metal with a slight touch of the POWER Metal dust. It will be interesting to those who love the sound of it, which we gave in the mid-80s: JUDAS PRIEST / SANCTUARY / MEGADETH etc. This is the old and ringing metal, which we listened to on vinyl records and copied to tape to share music with friends. HELLHOUND after that amount of time required to simply produce full-length album, without any delay whatsoever … The Old Guard metal fans waiting! / hellhoundusa

TRAZOM A reclamation of power

Excellent sounds have come to us from native land THRASH METAL. I is glad to acquaintance to such remarkable band as TRAZOM. I hasten to inform that these guys are perfectly familiar with creativity MEGADETH / DARK ANGEL for example. But it was not a blind copy, and an original find. They synthesized the THRASH METAL sounding with weight of techniques and elements NWOBHM. This is has reminded me an alloy of such collectives as CORONER / FLOTSAM AND JETSAM / MEGADETH and IRON MAIDEN / JUDAS PRIEST. This good mix for the description of music of new collective. One my companion as that has characterized a similar direction rather intelligent-clever THRASH METAL. Well such and it would be desirable to apply to a newly made demo of Americans from TRAZOM. Twisted and a progressive step in THRASH METAL!
