Raging Mob

     
         
         
         
     
             
Raging Mob are a thrash metal band from China formed in 2005 who released their one and only album in 2008.    
             
China and thrash metal are such a strange combination that it will have you wondering what the end result sounds like. And after you hear the opening instrumental 'Re-Animator' you begin to wonder if someone is having a laugh. Sounding like something out of a cartoon or an animated feature film, it swings back and forth to much amusement. However, that amusement is quickly put aside as soon as 'Promisebreaker' kicks the album off proper. 'Promisbreaker' opens in a blaze of blistering guitar and power rhythms with rough sounding vocals and thunderous drums. 'Manifesto' is a blazing, brutal romp of attitude with an early Anthrax influence and a sparkling guitar solo.    
             
'Slave To A Lie' has an awesome sounding guitar riff, a thunderous rhythm and rattles along at pace. Attitude laden vocals and angst ridden guitar work, this is a brutal aural assault with a screaming guitar solo. 'Rage' is more heavy metal than thrash but still retains the attitude of the earlier songs. A fantastic, bombastic riff opens the instrumental 'The Blessing Of The Mob' as it races away at pace with some blisteringly fast guitar work.    
             
'Residuals' is a mid tempo brutal romp with final song 'Destroy Hate' opening with a soulful guitar passage as it descends into a hate filled, raw romp of brutal thrash metal. If only this album had been released ten years earlier, there may well have been a follow up, but the memory of a potentially great thrash metal band from China will remain with the two bonus songs, live versions of 'Raging Mob' and 'Bushwackers'. Enjoy.    
             
Overall, attitude laden and brutal, this is a solid album of fast paced thrash, with blistering guitars and thunderous rhythms.
