The current Thrash Metal revival has given birth to legions of new bands. Repent (named after Accuser's 1992 album) from Germany is not one of them. Although there might be the possibility that not a lot of music fans have heard of them up until today, their history goes back a very long time. In 2009/2010 Repent recorded another promo/demo CD followed by the third album "Vortex of Violence" for High Roller Records in 2012. Whereas most of the current Thrash Metal bands claim to have been influenced by German outfits such as Kreator, Sodom and Destruction, this is not what Repent are all about. True, they are from Germany (Nuremberg to be precise) but their musical roots lay abroad wuith American thrash bands like EXODUS and SLAYER So there you have it. With their intelligent and technical Thrash Metal Repent might as well become the new Accuser. Repent's third album "Vortex of Violence" has the quality and finesse to become a modern Thrash Metal classic.
