Hungarian thrashcore warriors Crippled Fox are back with a brand new album! The long-awaited 4th full-length is here! Honestly, I really waited for this LP, because this band deserves my and your attention. Fast, aggressive, and full of energy, these guys know how to make and have fun!
“In The Name Of Thrash” has bloody nice cover art, with all attributes of thrash culture. The fox looks like he is a big fan of Suicidal Tendencies, haha! The heads in his hand are all 3 band members, so even the front cover of this album is full of fun, which is good. But let`s switch to the noise…
First of all, I didn`t expect this kind of stuff. Guys jumped into the crossover genre (not for 100% but)… which is not my kind of thing at all. But let`s give this album a chance.
Everything starts with an “Enter The Grim Reaper ” song, which begins a sample from the “Bill and Ted” movie, I bet that will put a smile on your face. Guys attacking the listeners with good speed and energy, that is positive. Tracks are not so long, but very alive. Hopefully, guys didn`t forget about their roots so here and there you will feel the real aggression of thrashcore. The riffs are simple and clear, the guitar tone is very usual as for crossover/thrash. I think the vocal is the main upstanding point here. It still charged with real evil and ferocity! Generally, this is well-done work with good sound, it`s just not my mug of beer, haha!)
I think these people who into thrash culture, who skate, who love headbanging will love this album.
Rating: 7.5/10 Crippled Fox bc
