Thrashera are a band from Brazil that plays a very retro and 80's style of blackened thrash metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Não Gosto!" which will be released on March 31st by Hellprod Records.
A very dark sounding intro starts off the album along with some spoken word parts also being used briefly before going into a heavier direction. All of the music is also very heavily rooted in the 80's era while the vocals are done in mostly a first wave black metal style and the music also adds in some touches of rock'n'roll and punk.
Melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing while the solos and leads also remain very true to an old school style. One track also adds in a brief use of classical guitars along with the music also adding in a great amount of thrash and speed metal elements. some of the screams add in a touch of second wave black metal.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with a couple of tracks also adding in a small amount of apocalyptic samples. Influences of traditional metal can also being heard in some parts of the recording as well as one track also adding in a brief use of female vocals., some songs also add in a small amount of back up shouts and they close the album with a cover of Titas's "Igreja". The production sounds very old school while the lyrics are written in Portuguese and cover satanism, sex, alcohol, metal,war, massacres, nuclear disasters and violence themes.
In my opinion Thrasghera are a very great sounding retro blackened thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Mare 669" "Trapped In The 80's" and "Correntes Nao Prendum Serpentes". 8 out of 10.
