Healthy and noteworthy thrash metal stuff - 90%

Written based on this version: 2017, Cassette, P-18 Records (Limited edition)

Lately it has become a big fashion and tendency to jump into the retro thrash metal movement to get an immediate fame and to pose like a kid with this newly created toy without even having a proper release. These so-called "sellout & poser" bands will exist for just a few years until they totally fade out due to the lack of originality and own ideas.

Fortunately, in the case of Dissorted the situation is completely different and maximally bright, because this German quintet pays major attention to compose as catchy and memorable songs as possible. Their tracks radiate or let's better say indicate a fairly wide range of excellent ideas that weren't just simply generated, but were arranged and executed with the utmost care and proficiency. This thrash-brigade perfectly knows how to achieve massive, well-balanced and outstanding material at the same time.

As for their musical influences, I should definitely mention such pioneers of thrash metal as Exodus, Megadeth or Tankard here. Still they are totally capable of incorporating these impacts into something of their own and to come up with healthy and noteworthy riffs and song-structures. I am just surprised how dynamic their compositions are. Everything's worked out so precisely there, especially I loved to listen to the greatness of the solos, which aren't only melodic or classical oriented, but at some parts have the vibe of an ethereal beauty. Global awesomeness in a word!

The 5 songs of their debut EP were recorded back in 2014 plus released and spread by the band independently, while this actual cassette release was hand-numbered and limited to 50 copies. So you better hurry on to catch your copy in time!
