Rapid Terror - Speed Metal Bastard (2016)

This Swedish two-man project was formed by a member of Runemagic, Heavydeath, Necrocurse and others who simply goes by the name Terror. Along with bassist Basstard, the two play a very stripped down style of blackened speed metal that comes without a hitch. It sounds warm, but not like an inferno, still sounding like it needs just a bit of work. The guitars are audible, the drums are stable and the vocal performance is quite ravenous, just as we might expect. There are some good riffs here and there and overall it seems like a pretty good demonstration of what these guys can do. It's pretty short and not an absolute must, but you'll like it if you dig the whole black/speed scene and similar acts. It's short, sweet and to the point. You're getting under twenty minutes of a performance that pulls no punches and literally is what it is. If you don't like black/thrash you won't like the disc, but if you do, it's worth checking out.
