WARSENAL – Barn Burner
Canadian speed/thrash metal here from the power trio Warsenal and their debut full-length "Barn Burner". Equally engaging their influence tree from their Canadian homeland a la Razor/ Exciter as well as some Bay Area and Teutonic strains, these nine songs waste no time getting to the heart of the matter. Imagine Mille/Kreator-ish sandpaper vocals over quick hitting speed/thrash and tight transitions and that’s what makes "Hit ‘n’ Run", the mid-tempo slam fest "Stab You One by One", and "NightStalker" so delightful for those who miss the early days of raw, abrasive, and underground metal.
Think back to when Metallica didn’t care for any commercial aspirations, and how the offspring plugged in and channeled that angst and aggression into adrenaline-laced glory. Adorn your favorite gear and march into Warsenal’s chaos.
