ALBUM: Terrortory – “City of Ghosts”
LABEL: Discouraged Records
GENRE: Thrash/Death Metal
RATING: 6.0 / 10
The first three tracks on this EP are kind of boring. A bland mixture of thrash, neo-thrash and death metal with too much groove (as they lack the heaviness to carry them). The last song, however, kicks nuts all up and down the street. “Beheading the Serpent” is truly what I want this band to build their next creations on. It’s also more influenced by black metal and is not far from the sound of the latest Tribulation album (review here).
Terrortory shouldn’t be embarrassed, but they would do good to change their name and continue on the darker path. This EP is not rememberable on it’s own, but every time I have started playing it after a pause I have been able to hum the melodies. Terrortory have something. Not a good band name, but music wise. I might even check out their earlier material.
