The other day I was on Jamie of Desolator’s thrash metal blog Thrash Maniacs and I was reading a write up he did on Irish thrashers Animator. I have to say I don’t know why more people aren’t aware of this great band. Recently the Irish thrashers have unleashed a three track EP entitled “Open Your Eyes” and this three track release is mandatory for any fan of great thrash and pulse pounding metal in general.
Open Your Eyes is a killer release that displays originality and old school influences fused together in away that will leave your ears craving more. With riffs that will get your head banging, lyrics you’ll be screaming along too and solos that will surely impress, Animator prove they know what a great thrash album should sound like and that’s exactly what Open Your Eyes is. a great thrash album that is a must own. The really cool thing about this release (other than the killer material) is the fact that the band is offering Open Your Eyes as a free download at this location.
The three tracks on this release are enough to make me a fan of this band for as long as they are around, and if the future is anything like this release then Animator will be around for a long, long time.
