RANCOR is a 5 piece thrash metal band hailing from Madrid/Spain and "Release The Rancor" is their first full-length album following two demos & one EP released between 2002 & 2006... So it took them almost 4 years to compose/arrange/release that first album and I can say the result is pretty good ! Production is clear but the album is not "over-produced", which lets a raw aspect to the whole, giving more impact to the power of the songs ! Musically I think the band is mostly influenced by the US thrash-metal style and bands like Overkill, Death Angel, Testament, Exodus, Defiance, Forbidden to name a few... got the picture ? Quite technical with melodies but always powerful ! You get 10 songs that really get straight into your head with killer guitar riffs, slower breaks mixed with faster parts and always a very good HEAVY feeling ! Vocals are clear & aggressive most of time but a bit more in a "hard-core" vein reminding me at times of old-D.R.I. or S.O.D./M.O.D. and of course the band uses the typical choirs here & there that are particular to the Thrash style... All in all, a very good & de cent release and I've no doubt that if you're into US Thrash, this band will find for sure a space in your CD-collection !
