Alcohelldrugs are a duo from Brazil that plays a mixture of black, thrash, speed metal and punk and this is a review of their 2020 album "Infernal Metal Punk" which will be released on November 20th by Murder Records.
A very heavy and old school speed metal influenced sound starts off the album along with the vocals being mostly grim sounding blackened metal screams. The music also adds in the raw aggression of punk rock along with some touches of the first wave era and the songs also mix in elements of thrash metal.
Most of the music is heavily rooted in the 80's era but mixed with a more modern day aggression while some of the tracks are also very short in length. The songs also avoid any use of guitar solos and leads along with most of the music also sticking to a mid tempo direction and when the music finally speeds up on a couple of tracks a small amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can also be heard.
As the album progresses a brief use of dark sounding melodies can also be heard as well as the music also adding in a touch of second wave black metal and the album closes with a cover of G.G Allin's "Bite Tt You Scum". The production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover alcohol, drugs, Satanism and rebellion themes.
In my opinion Alcohelldrugs are a very great sounding mixture of black, thrash, speed metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this duo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Self Destruction" "Domination Of Evil" "Route 666" and "SerialKiller". 8 out of 10.
