Adrenechrome - Hideous Appetites EP
By Natalie Zina WalschotsBased out of Orilla, ON, Adrenechrome compose a surprisingly intelligent form of thrash metal. While I would hesitate to refer to the complexity they inject into the genre as a progressive streak, as there's nothing delicate or overly intellectual about what they are doing, there's nonetheless care and concern in the compositions that pays off. The core of each song features a sweaty, aggressive thrash engine that propels the music forward, but the instrumentation is far more skillful and intricate than just straightforward shredding. "Hymn for the Heathens" has a great classic rock feel to it and opener "Titans Fall" does its mythic subject matter proud. It's also worth noting that Darius Szczepaniak (Sum 41, Sacrifice) produced this album, giving it superior balance and a deep, sumptuous tone one doesn't often hear applied to quick-and-dirty thrash. This is sophisticated low culture.
