This Milanese band has had a lengthy career spanning well over two decades, but the only album reviewed here is 2009's Pound For Pound, which, while recent, may not be a good representation of their past style. Anyway, this album is frequently reviewed with phrases like "returning to their thrash roots", and while there are modern thrash elements here, this is not traditional thrash and nowhere near the retro thrash style currently making the rounds. Additionally, their mid-career albums ventured into nu-metal territory, and again, that's not directly heard here, but one can here some of those influences. Basically, this is aggressive, modern, groove-thrash, at times in the Pantera mold (the vocalist doesn't match Anselmo either in quality or style, but he's in the same ballpark) though far from a clone. Rather atypical for an Italiam metal band, given that country's usual fondness for all things symphonic or power-metal-oriented.
