Exarsis is a band that should be on everyones radar. Formed in 2009 these old-school thrash enthusiasts cemented their line-up in 2010 and almost immediately the band recorded a demo and started playing shows in their native country of Greece. All the while the members of Exarsis continued to write material for their first full length album. A short time ago Exarsis released their debut “Under Destruction” which they recorded and produced entirely on their own.
The bands DIY approach has really paid off in the form of a great old school Bay Area style thrash metal record. Similar to their influences Exarsis deliver the goods in the form of relevant lyrics, tight pulse pounding riffs and solos that make light speed look like an old lady behind the wheel of a beat up station wagon. Through and through this is a solid release that thrashers everywhere should find highly enjoyable. Still now convinced? Then allow me to sum this album up in a different way:
UNDER DESTRUCTION: THE EXACT STATE I WAS IN WHILE LISTENING TO THIS KILLER DEBUT!
Check the band out over on Facebook and trust me when I say you’re gonna want to get your hands on this release. Wondering where you can find this album? Well Exarsis are kindly giving their debut away as a FREE DOWNLOAD at this location. Once again allow me to sum things up:
