Country: Austria
Title: Robolution
Label: Art Gates Records
Year: 2018
Style: Groove Thrash Metal

Three of the five members of Hellavista were previously members of a Thrash Death band called Freund Hein which activated between 1994 and sometime in the second decade of this century (wow, this sounds pretentious, right?), so basically we could think of a continuation of that band. Hellavista have no traces of Death in their music, but instead they added plenty of Groove influences to their Thrash Metal so that the end result is a catchy, mid-tempo to fast paced music that to me sounds like a groovy and less serious/sombre Metallica from the '80's maybe with a bit og Annihilator and Pantera thrown inthere. I very much like the long guitar solos that spice things up all the time, and also the addition of '70's like psychedelic keys to support the atmosphere in the background is a fine move from the band. My only regret/complaint is that not all tracks are as catchy as they could be, the band could have spent more time on developing the choruses parts. A fun, interesting album that won't change the World, but will make a fine half an hour to any Thrasher out there.
