Origin: Japan
Genres: Thrash Metal

Volcano  


Japan has produced several quality metal bands over the years in a variety of genres, but thrash hasn't really been one of them. Volcano opts to change that, their style being prime American- influenced thrash (think bands like Overkill or early Metal Church, with excellent solos and riffing from one She-Ja and competant vocals from Nov, whose throaty growl might remind one of Flemming Ronsdorf (Artillery) or perhaps Chris Boltendahl of Grave Digger if he sang in a thrash band. Violent, their debut, is solid throughout, energetic and well-constructed thrash, really a bit of a surprise given their relative lack of notoriety. Thumbs up for thrash fans here, this is definitely a band on par with anyone in their field.
