Biography

1.Fast, Loud & Ugly

Poland’s Snake Eyes make no effort to hide their obvious love for old style thrash. Their sound is very much reflects the likes of Kreator, Slayer, Destruction, Sodom, early Death and others. This is basic and direct thrash that just blasts ahead. If it wasn’t for the strong production you might swear that this was some lost release from 1989. I hear those kind of bands frequently these days, but Snake Eyes are a little better than most. The fact that they rip into their songs without hesitation or build-up and the pure aggression they bring helps elevate their sound. Fortunately they are one of those bands that realized that heaviness is equally as important as speed in constructing good thrash. So we actually hear the rhythm section and the two guitarists make their presence known constantly with riffs that you will feel in your bones. They even control the pace and really keep the songs active with a steady barrage of blistering sounds. Most of the tracks are under four minutes, but I was actually surprised that four of the nine songs go over the five mark. I didn’t realize that until about the third time I played the album. I guess that’s to their credit that they keep it all moving along and grab your attention. Nothing fancy here, but rather just old school thrash and fans of that style should really take to “Beware of the snake”.

2. Snake Eyes are a hardcore band from Glasgow who take influences from BAD SEED, IRATE, SPECIAL MOVE, BY MY HANDS, BROKEN OATH etc.
