Noisem - Agony Defined (A389)
Was put off by the name a bit I must confess. Made me think of average mid-noughties vaguely tech euro grind on sub-Relapse labels for some reason.
Thankfully it's an awesome blast of Slayer/Exodus style thrash metal. Just 9, short & too the point songs so it doesn't out stay it's welcome. Just listened to it twice and it's a perfect instant hit of wailing guitar solos and mosh riffs and general thrashing.
You can immediately hear it's top tier stuff that's more than just a bit of retro-pastiche. Bang on.
