Holocausto War Metal formerly known as Holocausto are a band from Brazil that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of black and thrash metal and this is a review of their self released 2020 demo "War General".
Spoken word and war samples start off the demo before going into a heavier musical direction which also adds in a small amount of melody. All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while the vocals bring in more of a first wave style of black metal.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can also be heard. The songs also bring in a lot of thrash metal elements while the music is also very heavily rooted in the 80's era and throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
On this recording Holocausto War Metal remain true to the mixture of black and thrash metal that they have established on previous releases. The production sounds very old school while the lyrics are written in Portuguese and cover war themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Holocausto War Metal and if you are a fan of black and thrash metal, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "I.S.I.S" and "Criancas Soldado". 8 out of 10.
