A new album from Eight Sins is a Thrashing Good Time

An album release from Eight Sins delivers a thrashing metal soiree that features melodic but edgy approaches, destructive drumming, and electric energy that lasts throughout the full record, and through it all, you get a sense of character which is something you end up latching on to pretty quickly.

The Straight To Namek album is absolutely massive, and it's got such an intense sonic drive to it, but it also has elements of vastness, anthemic choruses, and those elements in combination with the thrashing guitar tones, and fiery vocals make for a record that incorporates several metal subgenres all rolled into one fat album.

Listening to this record is an amazing and super heavy escape as they do bring in great hardcore elements in a classic way and you get super fun breakdowns and guitar sections that Rumble the ground beneath your feet.

This is the type of album you listen to all the way through from beginning to end because if you only listen to a few tracks, you're not getting anywhere near the full spectrum of what the record has to offer.

If you're a fan of metal, hardcore, grindcore, melodic metal, thrash, and even punk, this record will definitely hit all the sweet spots that you can possibly look for and then some.

There are a few breathers throughout the record that serve more as an intro an interlude and a closing.

The whole thing is kind of like a concept record which is another reason you should be listening to it in full instead of just skipping around.

The way the vocals come through has a fierceness, but they can also be melodic and powerful at the same time and the performance with guitars, bass, and drums all seem to complement each other.

When you listen to even one or two tracks from this record you can tell that these guys have been doing it for quite a long time and have an absolute love for their craft.

When I say a love for their craft, I don't mean just playing guitar or singing but rather writing songs together and releasing the mountain to the world for people to mosh around their living room too or head bang in the car with.

This record is fun and what's more is the energy level.

This record was recorded with plenty of attention to detail and you can hear that throughout the whole thing, but there's also this sort of electric energy that makes you feel like a certain level of these songs were recorded live-on-the-floor and all the players are just feeding off of each other the whole time so they can get that massive drive that the record boasts.

Of course, I could be wrong about the whole live-on-the-floor thing but, listening to the record makes you want to see them perform it live simply because if this kind of energy can be captured on record so well then seeing them live must be a real face-melter.

The level of musicianship across this album is intense, immense, expansive, and performed with incredible precision but also with a passion and fire in its underbelly.

This is what top-notch metal is all about.

Having choruses that are powerful and sticking your head for hours or even days after the songs have ended, riffs that are intense and make you want to replay the song again just to hear that guitar part, this album has it all.

Check this record out when you get a chance and be sure and listen to the whole thing from start to finish, and don't be afraid to turn it up.
