Are you wearing your cut off denim jacket, white hi-top trainers, skin-tight jeans, leathers and spikes? Good. You’ll need them because formed in the middle of the pandemic are Anarchy Zone who stepped out of Aarhus in Denmark with their self-titled debut EP.
The listener would be forgiven for thinking that this was an EP delivered by an established band of a decade or more because this is the sound of a band well beyond their years. ‘Anarchy Zone’ charges from the side-lines and jumps straight into the pit with all the old-school thrash power that the band can muster. Through tracks such as ‘ChainSaw’ and the phenomenal ‘Drain the Swamp’ which not only have the power of Slayer, Exodus and Testament but also the new machine gun fire of the likes of Hatchet, Havok and of course, Warbringer which allows ‘Anarchy Zone’ to be massively endearing as it implores the listener to play this EP over and over again.
Yeah, sure, there’s nothing here that hasn’t been done before, thrash is as thrash does. But for a first effort this is a great way to start your career and it sets the band up perfectly for what will hopefully be a debut album sooner rather than later.
