COLLAPSE - A Mano Armata EP
Well at least their band name doesn't represent their musical out put. This Italian five piece act blast forth with four cuts in less than fifteen minutes. Their brand of thrash is more akin to hardcore / speed metal ethos of the past. Which means back in the day this would have made one decent 7"er. It's a very likeable release sounding like a RAW POWER / EXODUS hybrid. The production is gritty demo quality which is also a plus for those neo-thrash fans looking for faux authenticity.
