Holycide are a band from Spain that plays a very old school form of thrash metal and this is a review of their 2015 ep "Toxic Mutation" which was released by Xtreem Music.
A very hard and heavy old school thrash metal sound starts off the ep along with some melodies and aggressive screaming and shouting vocals and after awhile back up gang shouts are added onto the recording along with some solos and leads that add more melody onto the recording and the songs are heavily rooted in the 80's.
At times you can hear influences from bands from almost 30 years ago that where in between thrash and death metal while the music focuses more on the later and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and while the music ignores all modern trends the production makes the songs have more of an up to date feeling. and they close the ep with a cover of Dark Angel's "Merciless Death".
Holycide plays a very old school style of thrash metal that is very heavy and aggressive and mostly rooted in the mid 80's, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover violent themes.
In my opinion Holycide are a very great sounding old school thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Blood Typhoon" and "Life Turned To Dust:. 8 out of 10.
