Evil Whiplash are a band from Columbia that plays a very old school form of thrash metal with touches of first wave black metal and Possessed, early Onslaught era death metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Beyond Dimension" which was released by Iron, Blood & Death Corporation.
Witch burning and night sounds start off the album giving the music more of a ritualistic feeling before adding in melodic guitar leads, thrash riffing and aggressive German influenced vocals and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the music is very heavily rooted in the 80's.
At times the solos and leads bring in more a melodic traditional metal style and you can also hear a lot of speed metal elements in the bands musical style along with a great dose of first wave black metal and the riffs also use a great amount of melody and all of t he songs sound like they could of been released 30 years ago.
The songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some tracks also show the band throwing in melodic screams and they also bring in an instrumental track that also introduces acoustic and classical guitars onto the recording and they also appear on some of the later tracks as well and a couple of the songs are very long and epic in length and the last track also brings in a brief use of melodic chants.
Evil Whiplash plays a musical style that takes early 80's thrash, speed metal and first wave black metal and mixes it together with a touch of death metal to create some very aggressive music that avoids sounding modern, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism, War and Violence themes.
In my opinion Evil Whiplash are a very great sounding mixture of thrash and first wave black metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Flight Of Satan's Whores" "Moon Shadows" "In The Name Of The Ancient Empire" and "Ultimate Void Of Chaos". 8/5 out of 10.
