Romanian Thrash Metal Club has the honor of announcing the first bands billed for the second edition of the Romanian Thrash Metal Fest. The event had its debut last year, headlined by the British thrash metal band Onslaught, which played the historical album “The Force” (1986) in its entirety for the first time.
On the same note, this year, on October 12th, RTMC presents another benchmark band for the global thrash metal scene, this time for the first time in Romania. Artillery, the Danish heavy/thrash metal combo will headline the Romanian Thrash Metal Fest with a 90-minute show based mainly around the historical “By Inheritance” album of 1990!
With a unique stylistic footprint, a heavy and thrash metal mix that stamped the speed’n’thrash label on the band’s résumé, Artillery is one of the hallmarks of traditional metal. Formed in 1983 in Taastrup, Denmark, Artillery has an extensive discography. Besides the 6 studio albums there are a number of demos, singles, live records and compilations, released on tape, CD, DVD or vinyl.
Nocturnal was formed in Mainz at the turn of the millennium by Avenger, as a one-man-ban. He was joined by Vomitor and Hellbastard, forming a trio that can be directly connected to bands like Old, Cruel Force, Terrorazor, Angel of Damnation, Bestial Desecration and others of the like. Later, the band became a quintet, with some lineup changes until this year, when they are a four-piece. Currently, the band is rehearsing in a new formula, with Avenger and Vomitor at its center, with the goal of recording, in fall, of a 3rd studio album. The new LP will add to a discography abundant in releases typical for extreme border genres, after Arrival of the Carnivore (2004) and Violent Revenge (2009).
Followers of the Teutonic method of torturing the guitar, alongside their elders Desaster, Nocturnal are successful offspring of a metallic generation of which at the moment only Sodom can claim precedence. The riffs are frozen in a time in which what we call today thrash and blackened thrash were forged with endless pain and infernal overkill, and under the hellish crossfire one finds the harsh vocals of Tyrannizer and the crushing rhythm. A cross-section of this brain-mincing machine can be completed by adding the discrete recommendation that those used to study Darkthrone album covers can easily find under the rags of the macabre wagoner of Dark Thrones and Black Flags.
To conclude with the advice of the good doctor Hannibal: only one thing can beat listening to Nocturnal, and that is seeing Nocturnal live!
Continuing the tradition of the club, Romanian Thrash Metal Fest, at its second edition, is both a platform for the promotion of thrash metal and the associated metal genres and a launching pad for younger bands associated with the scene. Thus, for starters, besides the Danish group we have confirmed three bands that, while still relative newcomers, have had releases that brought them to the attention of die-hard fans: Sofisticator from Italy, Bio-Cancer from Greece and Terrorhammer from Serbia.
From Florence, Italy, Sofisticator came to life in 2009 and is dedicated heart and soul to old school thrash metal, with influences – openly declared by the members but also easily audible – ranging from Venom and Slayer to Overkill, Possessed and Exodus. The heavy, sharp patterns, complete with a voice reminiscent of a young Cronos, counterbalance the side of the band similar to what made Tankard famous in the 90s, labeled “frivolous” by some but readily enjoyed by connoisseurs. Titles like the 2012 album “Camping the Vein”, obviously paraphrasing the famous “Tapping the Vein” Sodom record, or tracks like Total Flatulence War ( Beans Attack ) and “I Wa’ sborr ’To Rock’n’Roll”, and of course the name of the band itself, make Sofisticator an exuberant band that promises an experience never seen before in Romania.
Formed in 2010, in Athens, Greece, Bio-Cancer is not far from the other peninsular band, described above. Although musically oriented towards the darker, more aggressive side of thrash metal that spawned bands like Kreator, Morbid Saint, Demolition Hammer and the more recent Violator, Bio-Cancer manages to combine the obvious penchant for violence with crossover visual and stylistic queues that place it amongst fun- and scandal-loving bands. This time the humor is more on the morbid side, evidenced by tracks like “Get Cancered … Now” and even the album title, “Ear Piercing Thrash”, and it suggests the nefarious intentions of the band, regarding the audience. You have been warned!
Formed in 2010, in Pancevo, one of the most important Serbian cities, Terrorhammer is a three-headed beast, rising from the black metal chasm that two of the members (WarBeast Holocausto and Pentagramator The Helltyrant) rule together with companions from Triumfall.
With one EP under their belt – Vintage Black Mass, which is nothing more than the mad butcher’s bucket of waste, Terrorhammer is a voracious entity, influenced and possessed by Hell’s elite, whose outstanding characters are Sarcofago, Possessed, Amebix, Vulcano, Destroyer 666 or Impaled Nazarene, and they don’t hesitate to call themselves Necro Speed Hooligans. Which is pretty modest considering WarBeast Holocausto is, starting from 2012, the voice of the infamous Scandinavian legend that is Gorgoroth.
Thus, the Romanian Thrash Metal Club, continuing to support the treasure trove that is the Serbian metal scene, invites you to a nice evening of dancing to hits like: Nunfuck Division, Hellspells or the touching Hammer Of The Terror Cult.More details on:http://www.rtmc.roContact: firstname.lastname@example.org
