There must be something in the water over in Italy. I know I say this a lot but it seems like every time I turn around I discover another killer band from this country, my latest discovery being old-school thrashers Burning Nitrum. Relatively new on the scene Burning Nitrum describe their style of music as “100% Old-School Thrash Metal,” and are influenced by thrash legends such as Exodus, Testament, and even Demolition Hammer!
On the bands recently self released debut EP Pyromania, Burning Nitrum show love for their influences without stepping on their icons toes thereby creating an album that is truly original and old-school. Immediately hurling the listener into a war zone with the instrumental track “Enter The Fire” Burning Nitrum fire off riff after impressive riff and throughout Pyromania heads will bang and necks will snap. Even if you could escape the clenches of Burning Nitrum you wouldn’t want to. Powerful vocals, thunderous drumming and lightning fast leads will beat you into submission, and you’ll enjoy every second of it. Burning Nitrum maybe the new kids on the thrash metal block but on Pyromania the band performs like a group of well seasoned thrash metal vets. With an album that is truly old-school and original Burning Nitrum are a force to be reckoned with and are certainly one to keep an eye on in the future. Your ears will love what they hear however you neck may not enjoy it nearly as much!
