"THE POUND OF FLESH"
PUNISHMENT 18 RECORDS
"THE POUND OF FLESH" is eleven thrashing tracks from Italy's very own TOTAL
DEATH. TOTAL DEATH live up to their name. They formed back in 2000 playing
total Death / Thrash Metal tight riffs with Power Violence type vocals. They also add in
a mix of Death / Thrash vocals. This is a great combination for this style to be heard.
There is some interesting guitar work by Paolo Azzimonti, vocals & guitars by
Federico Monti. The guitars and the drummer and bassist work very well, it's like a well
oiled battle tank in full war zone. How a great accomplishment to finalize your band and
sound like a mix of old METALLICA, SLAYER and SEPULTURA all in one and
keep the spirit of Metal alive... TOTAL DEATH does not disappoint they get a high
eight on this scale of original Thrash!!!
