In today's retro thrash landscape there are those who honour the past, there are those who fake it, and there are those who truly embody Thrash Metal's attitude and roots. Boston's Black Mass are 100% authentic and if you close your eyes and listen, their new album Feast at the Forbidden Tree sounds like it was released back in 1985.
Black Mass have really upped the ante on this release, and have created their most vicious and savage album yet. With 2 full lengths behind them, a tour supporting Venom Prison, a tour in South America, and countless other shows, Black Mass are set for world domination with this new album and are here to prove they are a force in Thrash to be reckoned with. They might not be the most recognised name when you think of Speed / Thrash Metal of the last decade, but this album will certainly put them on the map as a contender to the throne.
“Thrash is the name of the game here, but a particularly menacing and infernal brand of thrash, one with a vicious attitude, a sound that’s not shined-up, and an impact that’s viscerally compelling.” - No Clean Singing
