Machine gun and mortar fire lead into the musical intro of ‘Total Warfare’ the new album from KREMATED. The bass drums and guitar take over like the heavy artillery. Music at this intensity can act like a helicopter gun ship. This is the point of thrash! As has been the intention of many great musicians in history, this is another attempt to re-create the impact, the charge of the light brigade had on the world of classical. The problem is though that they are affiliated with the independent rock fraternity, they have "no discipline" not like the glorified tribute/cover bands that parade the corridors of the guild hall, they wouldn't engage in such debauchery...
My hope with KREMATED is as it has been with most other thrash metal bands that they will break through and be recognised for their excellent reproduction of the chaos of the front line. This is the energy and sound of modern warfare but unlike all the heroin addicts and alcoholics of the classical scene that celebrate the beauty of empire, KREMATED question the integrity of massacre or megadeath (not the band).
This is just as good as MEGADETH (the band) if you like real thrash with expert precision then you seriously need to check out ‘Total Warfare’ from KREMATED. This is the beginning of something.
