Oh my God, these Japanese are really sick. No, I don't mean their torture porn movies and not their school girl fetish, I'm talking about Old-School-Death-Metal with a concept story about drunken Metal zombies (!). Scandal! This band's name is obviously inspired by an old DEATH song, that's a plus for me. Musically, they offer rough Death Metal, somewhere between AUTOPSY and CARCASS added with some Thrash influences.

This isn't technically overly skilled but it's full of great riffs and occasional blasts. The opening track "Head Banging Zombies" stands out of the crowd and is the perfect hit for every Metal DJ! But also "Zombie Hurricane" has class. The singalong choruses are just great as well as the super solo. This is decently rocking. The vocals may be a matter of taste but they are okay.

You see, there's some fresh air coming from the East! Cool band.
