Slovakia is one of the latest countries to jump on the
thrash bandwagon, with Majster Kat's 2007 debut
leading the way.
Given the wide range of thrash bands these days,
this album is far more old-school than modern, though it
doesn't quite fit the retro craze that's currently in vogue.
This is speedy and energetic, and at times slightly
complex in the riff and songwriting departments.
Vocalist Slymák is the wild card here -- he has kind of
a high-pitched, curiously out-of-control vocal style that
might be offputting to some (a distant memory says that
Thorsten Bergmann might have had a similar style).
Too soon to tell how far this band might go (singing in their
native language may ultimately keep them from making
serious international headway), but Svata Zvrhlost
an entertaining listen in any case.
