Don't listen if you're pregnant!

Thanks to Jonas aka UMUR and the list of the best free & legal metal music, I've discovered Revocation and their newest EP - TERATOGENESIS. Yep, it is released for free and it's great! What a treat! Fast, furious and adventurous ride! Thrashy, deathy, hair scorching bomb blast! Teratogenic roller-coaster it is!

TERATOGENESIS is one of those modern death/thrash metal albums that you're tempted to call progressive but that's not really the case. Every genre can be original to some extent without necessarily being "progressive". The music here is a modern sounding, groovy technical thrash metal with semi-death/semi-thrash vocals, a little bit reminiscent of metalcore screaming. The album boasts quite unrestrained songwriting within the scope of the genre, intriguing diversity of moods and, most of all, an excellent flow. Besides classic thrash metal riffs, the band interspersed the music with clever tech death themes, cool melodic solos and quite elaborate variations that keep your attention riveted throughout.

I haven't heard any of Revocation full-length albums but I'm pretty sure that calling TERATOGENESIS their showpiece wouldn't be an exaggeration. It's an extremely enjoyable piece of technical death/thrash metal that combines tradition with modernity. Essential to all thrash metal fans.
