This is a review of another album from Brazil's Whipstriker which continues the black metal, heavy/speed metal and crust punk mixture of previous recordings and this is a review of their 2016 album "Only Filth Will Prevail" which will be released in September on cassette by Goatprayer Records.
A very hard and heavy sound starts off the album and brings in an early 80's thrash/speed metal style along with some black metal screams that have more of a first wave vibe to them while death metal growls can also be heard at times and the solos and leads have a very heavy Motorhead influence to them.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody at times while some of the tracks sound like they could of easily been recorded and released 30 years ago and as the album progresses elements of crust punk, d beat and rock'n'roll can be heard in certain sections of the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and all of t he songs stick to a very hard and heavy retro style.
Whipstriker creates another recording t hat is rooted in the first wave black, speed and heavy metal traditions while also mixing in elements of death metal, crust and rock'n'roll to create some extreme retro metal, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover war, violence and Satanism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Whipstriker and if you are a fan of black, speed, heavy metal and crust, you should check out this cassette. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Satan's Slave" "Nuclear Metal Blood" "Armless Dance" and "Armageddon Delight". 8 out of 10.
