Bio-Cancer are a band from Greece that plays a very old school form of thrash metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Tormenting The Innocent" which will be released in March by Candlelight Records.
A very melodic and heavy sound starts off the album along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and the music is very heavily rooted in an 80's style of thrash metal along with some aggressive screaming vocals and back up gang shouts which also have a hardcore punk vibe to them and the music also brings in a decent amount of blast beats.
You can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts throughout the recording and the solos and leads the band uses remain true to an old school and extreme form of thrash metal and while the music is very old school the production gives the songs more of an up to date feeling and some of the tracks the bass is utilized as more of a lead instrument.
As the album progresses clean playing can be hears in certain sections of the recording along with some of the leads adding in more melody and one of the tracks also add in a small amount of violins while the main focus remains more on an aggressive style of thrash that also has screams that border on early death metal and one of the tracks towards the end also brings in a brief use of horror movie samples.
Bio_Cancer plays a very old school style of thrash metal that is very heavily rooted in the more brutal and aggressive side of the genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover cancer, violence and pain themes.
In my opinion Bio_Cancer are a very great sounding aggressive and brutal thrash metal b and and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tormenting The Innocent" "Think!" and "Life Is Tough (So Am I)". 8/5 out of 10.
