Exxperior are a band from Germany that plays a very old school form of thrash metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 album "Killing Entertainment".
A very heavy old school thrash sound starts off the album along with many different vocalists and blast beats as well as speeding up at times and the solos enhance the 80's elements of the music, on some of the other songs they bring in horror movie samples along with some of the vocals utilizing melody at times along with a small amount of death metal growls.
The album has a very heavy bay area feeling to it with most of the music having a sound that is stuck in the 80's but in a great way and as the recording progresses clean playing is added into certain sections of the recording while still focusing more on a heavy sound which also starts bringing in a small amount of power and speed metal elements but adding the heaviness of thrash to the sound.
As the album progresses the music gets away from the old school thrash sound for awhile and brings in a symphonic blackened death metal sound on one of the tracks and it only sticks around briefly and on the following track the old school thrash metal sound makes a return along with the vocals also using more power metal elements while lacking the melodic power of most bands of that genre and towards the end a power ballad is added onto the recording before closing the album with a heavier track.
Exxperior for the most part stick to an old school thrash sound while they do bring in a small amount of death and black metal influences on a couple of tracks as well as having a great amount of melody, the production is very professional and updates an old school sound, while the lyrics cover dark, violent and hateful themes along with the last 5 tracks being a mini concept album in their own way.
In my opinion Exxperior are a very great sounding old school thrash metal project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Toxic Avenger" "I Am Your Death" "Thrash Insanity" and "Time For Revenge". 8 out of 10.
