Annihilate...Then Ask!
April 2017
Released: 2017, Xtreem
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: John Haseltine

Well over a decade since their original inception, Spain’s Holycide unleash their full-length debut ANNIHILATE…THEN ASK! What was to be a side project formed by Dave Rotten (Avulsed) in 2004, had numerous hurdles along the way. There were numerous line-up changes along the way, and due to the band members’ main obligations, it was not until 2015 that their debut EP, TOXIC MUTATION saw the light of day.

The band spent some time touring locally tearing up the metal scene with their brand of aggressive trash metal. It was going so well that they penned out several new tracks for this release towards the end of 2016 and now all you thrash bangers can rejoice in the devastation put forth by Holycide. This is what aggressive thrash metal is all about. Not that thrash is already aggressive enough, Holycide take to another level. Whether it’s the punishing riffs of “Humans Last Dawn” to the high speed drum attack on “Deserve to be Erased”, each track is equally devastating. Holycide, thankfully, do not take a moment to slow up a bit.

Fans of Dark Angel, Coroner, Sacrifice and Atrophy will enjoy this release. As will any thrash maniac out there. Holycide deliver thrash as it should be delivered. Fast, aggressive, and in your face!
