Mass Hypnosia is a thrash metal band from the eastern fringes of Metro Manila's derelict urban landscape. This drunk addicts have given us a taste of true violence, death and horror.
Untouched by the blinding ineptitude that plagues the local Philippine band scene they guard their underground ideology with a fence of barbwired independence. They have stocked their arsenal with an uncomprable and uncompromising barrage of hate and strife that is heard clear and precise within their riffs and the disturbingly intent nature of the band's murderous vocal screams.
Yet, Mass Hypnosia is not contented. Slowly gaining notoriety and status on the Filipino underground music community, founder Karl Rosales kept and still keeps the fire burning despite of several lineup changes. Since their 2011 demo (Blood Spotted Bullet Face) the band focuses on a matured, raw and gritty sound which would become the prototype of the new direction the band is bound on.
All this cumulating in the release of “Toxiferous Cyanide”: An album full of raw and energetic thrash metal which sounds as thrash should sound!

With their new album „Tyrants“, LOST WORLD ORDER finalize their endtime-trilogy that was started with „Marauders“ and continued with „Parasites“. The end of the world has come, and LOST WORLD ORDER are the prophets of ruin in a disturbing dystopia.
The band was founded in 2008, gained a wide fanbase with the free download of „Marauders“ and even raised it with „Parasites” with the CD-version released via GoodDamn Records.
Besides the aggressive riffs, which are situated somewhere between classic Bay Area and German Ruhr area, the impulsive drumming and the pumping basslines, there are twin guitar leads with NWOBHM-vibes, modern walls of sound and catchy chorus lines. The vocals set priorities from Thrash-shouting over growls to dark clear singing.
Formed in 2005 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania it took the band only a year to release the stunning debut “Reverence Dies Within”. This album was recorded, produced, released and promoted completely by the musicians on their own. Filled with songs which are a great mix between Thrash and Power Metal the band did not only get great reviews, but also label-offers.
As a result Crown The Lost got signed to Cruz Del Sur-Music and the follow up was released in 2009. This one, “Blind Failth Loyalty”, got great reviews all over the world again (for example 8/10 in german Rock Hard-mag), but due to line up-problems the band didn't really get the chance to promote the album.
Assailant is one of the most promising thrash bands from Latin America. Hailing from Heredia in Costa Rica this is not the most common home for quality thrash metal, but this release speaks for itself as for the music scene in Costa Rica, too. Playing slighty technical, Bay Area-influenced thrash – though far from being called progressive -, the band performs some well structured thrash tunes with catchy riffs and aggressive vocals with a hint of Slayer.
The complete album gets some extra charme by not having a clean, polished production, but a perfectly fitting raw sound.
This release is a re-issue of the strictly limited 2012-demo (which had only 150 copies), remastered and with added bonus-material (2 live & 2 rehearsal-tunes) as well as a bigger booklet with more pics and informations.
