REVIEW

There is always something short and sharp about an EP that seems to have this sense of real urgency this release is no different; finding itself within the thrash genre . Nuclear Terror a four piece troupe hailing from Greece – a country rich in epic/power metal affluence, bringing with them high octane thunderous thrash EP whose production keeps in the with true sense of a DIY project.

Opening with “Dawn of Extinction” a traditional melody that is similar to Master of puppets’ “Battery” that flows in gently after such sweet harmony into a clash of wills that comes with “Nuclear Warfare” that is something again of a traditional title for the genre.

It becomes clear at about song three – “Flesh Feast” that the DIY aspect might not have been in so much favour to the band as the vocals are mixed a bit higher in places and lower than others. More bad points include a real glitch with the suitability of the vocals themselves, along with the shortness of the EP’s length.

Overall the EP is a good start for the band – who have been a group since 2009 but it could be improved in a lot of ways, there is good song writing there, just hard to hear in a lot of places that lowers the potential of the EP.
