Sons Of Tschernobyl

     
         
         
         
             
             
Pripjat are a thrash metal band from Germany who released their debut album in 2014. Influenced by the eighties thrash metal scene, the album is furious, frenetic and very, very heavy.    
             
The album is very quick into its stride with the opening song, the fast and furious 'Nuclear Chainsaw'. Nodding its head towards early Slayer, this song makes you stand up and take notice. 'Liquidators' rattles in at top speed with a frenetic guitar intro and a powerful vocal performance. A thunderous rhythm and relentless drumming, this is an out and out thrash epic. 'Acid Reign' has the feel of 'For Whom The Bell Tolls' by Metallica as it stomps majestically through some power riffs.    
             
The album has attitude, anger and angst which is so evident on 'Born To Hate' with vocals that are spat, drums that rattle like a freight train and blistering guitar work. 'Snitches Get Stitches' is another furiously fast paced thrash song that flies by in a flash. 'Red Disease' races by, with a thumping rhythm, furious vocals and some great guitar solos. Upping the tempo into what could be described as speed thrash is 'Destruction Manifesto'. A pounding rhythm, blistering guitars and awesome vocals making this one of the best songs on the album.    
             
'Toxic' owes its sound to Anthrax and is another fast paced thrash song with a sparkling guitar solo. The best song on the albums is 'Sons Of Tschernobyl', a six minute plus epic full of great guitar work with a lyrical content about the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl (in 1986) which affected the families of the band members. At the end of the song is the chilling click sound of a Geiger counter.    
             
Overall, fast and furious eighties style thrash metal, nodding its head to the sounds of Slayer, Metallica and Anthrax.
