Review Grindpad : Sharkbite [EP] 2017


Scalpture have their fourth EP “ Sharkbite ”, formed in 2005 in Netherlands , It is an outstanding EP, in the vein of old Thrashl Metal .The sound of Grindpad reminds me of bands like Slayer , Exodus and Sacred Reich. They mix the melody, the deep sounds, and of course that special guitar sound with the density of those days of 90’s. They have got the spirit of that time. Since some time there is a rebirth of old school Thrash Metal and these Metallers  are in the good path, the left one There are some parts that could be lost songs of the two bands named before. In some moments they also have the old Death Metal  touch of the old bands. Maybe if this EP would have been recorded in the 90s we were talking about a classic of the genre, or a lost diamond rediscovered. All the songs have a very good rhythmic base with solid sound of all instruments, the moments of speed and the slow are mixed with a good taste. Also melodic passages, but never melancholic, in the old Deutsch way, with a dynamic movement. After all this, I only have to say that you have to listen to this album and enjoy again the old school days. I hope to hear more of this good band in the nearby future.
