This reissue of all this Old School Thrash Metalk act is a fine opportunity for the fans of the genre.

In the scientific model to Big Bang’s timeline, the nearer you are from the beginning, the higher will be the energy and entropy, what can result in a chaotic scenario. Similarly, when one go back to the early days of extreme Metal genres in the 80s, one could think that Black Metal, Death Metal and Thrash Metal would be different sides of a same musical genre (and as time passed, the genres became better defined). That’s the reason why SLAYER, SODOM, DESTRUCTION, KREATOR, VENOM, BATHORY and HELLHAMMER/CELTIC FROST shared similarities on their early days. And this era between 1982 and 1986 is still a source of musical inspiration to many, as the one man act DRUNK THRASHER from Poland, here with the 5-songs EP “Raining Vomit”.

Recorded between 2020 and 2023, the sonority tries to emulate some aspects of the 80s, especially the organic and simple appeal of the independent releases of those days. It can be said that there are moments similar to a Demo tape recording, and some in a more defined way, but always allowing the hearers to understand what’s being expressed. It can be said that’s nasty and filthy, but understandable. And as guest, here is Marc Butcher, A.K.A. Łazan (from ABOMINATED, HEXENALTAR and INCINERATOR), playing the guitar solo on “Thrashrust”.

Although the label used to define the band’s music could be Thrash Metal, the best one should be Proto-Thrash Metal, or in a clear explanation, the ways German Thrash Metal sounded when influences of Black Metal, MOTÖRHEAD and Hardcore were clear. This EP has a charming appeal for those who witnessed the days when SODOM, KREATOR, DESTRUCTION and SLAYER were still young and naïve, when they were still fighting to find a personal and definitive way. And it’s good, really good, besides the potential to be better is clear to anyone to hear.

“Thrashrust” is a form of Old School German Thrash/Black Metal, filled with nasty guitar and nasty snarls from the vocals, and in the same way is “Raining Vomit” (where the band depicts a temper of Old School Death Metal on some riffs). On “Masturbation on the Tomb”, the speed decreases to create a somber and nasty ambience (and where MOTÖRHEAD and CELTIC FROST influences are clear). Back with a faster attack, “The Poisoning” is filled with a nasty aggressive appeal and a good work on bass guitar and drums. And “Drunk Thrashers Attack” has the Demo sonority spoken above, and depicts a filthy and nasty outfit that’s hard to resist to.

At the end of all things, this new release of “Raining Vomit” seems to be a fusion between all the band’s releases (the Demo “Drunk Thrashers Attack”, the Single “The Poisoning” and the songs of the original release of the EP), so it’s a fine moment to have in hands all stuff from DRUNK THRASHER, and maybe a preparation for a full-length to come in a near future.
