They don’t make ‘em like this anymore…

The crunching riff & drum beat that introduces Project Pain directly calls to the metaller in you. Instantly getting the hairs standing up on the back of the neck, the old-school thrash sound is comfortingly familiar. Primator, Final March & Silent Invader are raging torrents of filth that deliver on all fronts but in particular with the guitar solos.

Project Pain know just how to smash out a good guitar solo & every single track has one that inevitably lifts it. Sitting perfectly alongside some fantastic riffing, booming bass & bitter sounding vocals.

The album flies by in a hail of thrash metal bullets. Track after track delivering intense & pacey riffing. Some might bemoan the lack of variety but with such meaty numbers like the title track ( the drumming is unbelievable), the white-hot power of Regret Nothing (what a guitar solo!) & the huge middle finger of I Don’t Give a Fuck.

Brothers in Blood is a throwback album, one that celebrates all that is great about thrash metal. Intense riffs, screaming solos & an attitude that is all about the heavy.
