Axegressor are a band from Finland that plays an old school form of thrash metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Last" which will be released by Listenable Records.
A very heavy and aggressive thrash sound starts off the album and after awhile the music goes into a faster direction along with some aggressive vocals and a small amount of blast beats and they also bring in a mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with a good amount of melody.
The guitar solos and leads on the album remain true to an old school thrash metal sound and the music on this album is as heavy as this genre gets without having death metal elements in their sound only the purest, rawest and heaviest form of thrash is in the bands musical style and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
While the music is very old school and 80's sounding it still has a more modern feeling due to the production and update technologies as well as some of the later tracks utilizing back up gang shouts and the vocals adding in melodic screams and the music also combines the Bay Area sound with the more raw German form of thrash metal.
Axegressor take a very old school form of thrash and takes it into the most aggressive style this genre created as well as updating it for the modern day, the production sounds very professional and the lyrics cover violent and hateful themes.
In my opinion Axegressor are a very great sounding thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Freedom Illusion" "!5" "A Fistful Of Ignorance" and "Determinator". 8/5 out of 10.
