Axecuter: Bangers Prevail

Heavy/Thrash Metal
3.0/5.0

At first, I didn't know whether to smile or cringe. Certainly, Brazil power trio Axecuter wear their metal hearts on their metal spiked leather sleeves. You read the title correctly, Bangers (as in headbangers) Prevail. Did they really release their songs on a cassette? Holy 1980! It's deja vu all over again!

These three songs are all about metal and being metal. It's old school 80's heavy metal mixed with some thrash. Bangers Prevail and Ritual of Decibels speak for themselves: heavy metal rules. Then there's the self-endorsing song, Axecuter. Okay, I know it sounds cheesy, but these guys are actually pretty good. They've got the genre nailed: the songs are heavy, sometimes pummeling, and they have some ripping guitar solos.

Here's the thing: Axecuter is absolutely serious; this is not parody. So get out your cut-off denim jacket, dust off those pins, and bang your head like its 1981.
