With 12 years of activity underbelt Tiran still seems to be the project of its mastermind, guitarist and vocalist Tiran, and this third full-length is a new proof of that. The album was conceived and recorded during 2013 and 2016, with plenty of drama surrounding the line-up in the meantime which led to members changes as well. Tiran set himself a target to release three full-length albums with this band, and niw that it reached this goal it's interesting to see if he will continue the project. Talking about the music inhere, we're dealing with fast paced, adrenaline-filled (Speed) Thrash Metal with occasional Death Metal influences, highlighted by a raw but clean at the same time sound, a rabid vocal line that leads perfectly and makes the music as a whole to stand-out of the crowd, then we get a traditional tongue in cheek guitar work with plenty of catchy moments and leads of rhythm changes, and an organic sounding rhythm section. For old-school ('80's) Thrash Metal maniacs there's a lot to enjoy here even though we cannot talk about originality anymore in this territory; Tiran is a cool and pasionate band and this new album sounds honest as fuck, give it a chance!
