This lot admit that they set out to play classic 80’s thrash as aggresively as they possibly could. That is what this mad batch of Brazillians have done. And rather than apeing the most famous Brazilian metal outfit, Sepultura, with their tribal earthy vibe, this lot have gone for a more trad thrash sound. Its fast furious and heavy as hell, with serious shreding on tracks like ‘The Age of Rage’. Naturally the drumming is impressive, with Bostaph levels of intensity. Alex Coellho growls with the best of them. This is an awesome collection of thrash that will please even the pickiest of the genre’s fans. It is not shock at all that they have toured with Judas Priest, Exodus and Malevolent Creation. Mausoleum have in this band some true thrash talent. I challenge you not to head-bang to this disc, its like the 80’s thrash scene all over again. Great stuff…and I am betting they are absolutely mental live.
