NEWS: Phrenetix (Lithuania)
release date: November 11th, 2015
These thrashers from Lithuania now have their debut ready for the world to hear. For this band, thrash means traditional, 80s-style thrash played by a new generation addicted to big riffs and fast songs. Well, and if you want to mosh, they are not going to object, either. How many bands from Lithuania have you heard? How many thrash bands from Lithuania have thrashers heard? Maybe this is your first, maybe not. Maybe you are new to thrash, maybe you have lots of thrash in your music collection. Either way, this young band has a fever and the only medicine that can help them is to play thrash.
Here is some information about them and their recording:
PHRENETIX is a thrash metal band formed in 2011, Lithuania. Since 2012 August, the four maniacs have been actively playing shows in clubs and festivals throughout the country. After a full year of gigging, Phrenetix have released 5 demo tracks online, which was later distributed by „Symbol of Domination Prod“ in CD. Now the group continues to play concerts and are preparing for recording a full-length album in 2014 summer.
PHRENETIX music fully describes the essence of old-school thrash metal, and also incorporates a variety of other music styles, which gives the group a unique, manic sound. Their distinct riffs and odd composition separates them from many thrash metal bands, which, including intensity and aggression in live performances, is the main Phrenetix feature and appeal.
