"Featuring twin brothers Rob Evil and Michael Murder" — okay, I'm sold! But just in case you need more, these guys are from Memphis, play completely 100 percent true old-school thrash and released one self-titled full-length back in 2006. This EP is charming in its production values, which sound legitimately like an indie release from an '80s thrash band, and its adherence to old-school raging thrash — no posturing or attempting to sound like anything other than bros who grew up with, and love, thrash. And we're talking first-gen thrash, with hints of trad metal thrown in for extra dashes of sincerity. You can tell these guys live and breathe this stuff, and while we've heard it many, many times, for the duration of these three songs, music can get no better. Sure, when it's over you'll immediately forget what it sounds like, but when it's on, it's on. (Hells Headbangers)
