A Beautiful Sickness
Review by JD on March 16, 2012.
Thrash has make an incredible recovery in the last few years. From being pretty much dead to bands kicking ass around the globe, it has emerged again. I for one, applaud this revelation as Thrash is one of those types of metal that is part of my heart and one of the main influences in both my life and my music. Here to prove that point with a loud exclamation mark is Virginia's based Project: Failing Flesh.
Comprised of Brothers Tim and Kevin Gutierrez with ex-VoiVod/E-Force singer Eric Forrest, Project: Failing Flesh is a no holds barred, nasty Thrash band that can literally lop your head off with its razor sharpened riffs and nasty vocals. Sounding like a amalgamation of Exodus and Overkill with Kreator attack - they bring these awesome inflences along with a fresh and original yet menacingly nasty version of Thrash that sears into your brain from the first note.
The track 'Planet Dead' just seems to invade the mind, and sets up shop there, mixing that old school Thrash assault with some shadings of Forrest’s VoiVod days. The amazing remake of metal legends Venom nasty 'Warhead' simply cements the fact that Project: Failing Flesh is a band that just plainly thrashes hard, and has brought true and balance Thrash to the forefront once again.
It does not take any stretch of the imagination to see the power, heaviness, acid laced vocals with sheer and unabashed talent that this trio packs. It is refreshing to see old school meeting new interpretation with added dose of attitude. Simply one of the finest slabs of metal I have had the pleasure of hearing, and one that I had missed when it had been released.
