Review about the CD version on Skull Fracturing Metal Zine:

http://skullfracturingmetal.blogspot.pt ... phany.html


PERPETRATÖR – Thermonuclear Epiphany

Perpetratör is a thrash band from Portugal, and while I can honestly say that I’ve never heard another band from Portugal, these guys set the bar pretty high. Their debut album, “Thermonuclear Epiphany” is an exercise in German-styled thrash metal that is sure to please fans of the big 3 Teutonic thrash bands. The first way you’ll notice that Perpetratör displays similarities to that ruthless style of thrash is in the vocals. While vocalist Rick Thor doesn’t sound exactly like Mille, Schmier, or Angelripper, he has the same level of character in his voice that those legendary frontmen have. As soon as you hear a Perpetratör track, you’ll know it’s them by the sound of his voice. Another commonality to these bands comes in the opener, “Megaton Therion”, which is one of the highlights of the record. Underneath the chorus is a flurry of notes in the form of a very Destruction-esque lead circa the “Mad Butcher” era. In fact, the guitar playing as a whole is more reminiscent of Mike Sifringer than the other German guitarists for a couple of reasons. For one thing, the solos are well constructed, and not simply abusive of the tremolo bar. The other main reason is that while the riffs do display a propensity towards heavy alternate picking, there are times when they go for a more traditional thrash style riff. A great example of this is the main riff in “Pyres In The Night”, which ranks up there many riffs from “Infernal Overkill”.

“Thermonuclear Epiphany” really excels as a record that creates a headbanging good time. Every song is enjoyable, but only a few create a lasting impression. The aforementioned opener is one of them, but the best song on the album is “Death To All”. With more speed and aggression than anything else, this is Perpetratör at their most fierce. Words are spit out in rapid succession on this song, with seemingly no end in sight. Eventually, however, things go more mid-paced and it absolutely crushes. Another standout track comes in the form of the closer, “Fire Unleashed”. This song is a bit different from all of the others, because it is not solely focused on brutality, but this allows some space for Rick Thor to really impress with his vocals. There's quite a bit more melody in this track, both in the form of the vocals and shredding guitar solos. Overall, however, it is just a nice change of pace from all of the thrashing that preceded it.

This record is definitely impressive. If you like any form of more aggressive thrash, Perpetratör will likely appeal to you. Not only is this album really enjoyable, but it also shows a lot of potential for the future depending on what aspects of the band’s sound they want to expand on. Either way, you should buy “Thermonuclear Epiphany” as soon as possible!

"Megaton Therion"

Another review, this time in Portuguese language

http://soundzonemagazine.blogspot.pt/2014/02/review-perpetrator-thermonuclear-epiphany.html


PERPETRATÖR
"Thermonuclear Epiphany"

Sorrateiramente, com pezinhos de lã e uma garrafa de um qualquer inflamável para nos deitar por cima. Até podiam não querer, mas causaram tal efeito de combustão.

Membros com experiência suficiente no nosso underground (com ligações a Filii Nigrantium Infernalium, Ravensire, Ironsword, Decayed ou Decreto 77), estes quatro cadavéricos cavaleiros galgam desavergonhadamente uma história europeia tão relevante como a do thrash metal teutónico. Sodom e Destruction, venham cá ouvir isso. Tankard e Kreator também não se acanhem. Há aqui um travo revivalista fantástico, uma palidez aprazível no que concerne aos tons de um passado saudoso e principalmente a surpresa por ser gerado e alimentado em Portugal. Para primeiro disco? Claramente consistente. Por ser português? Sem preconceito, mas ainda mais surpreendente, pois não é esta a nossa escola.

Esta é a primeira colecção de temas destes lisboetas. Entre o rebuliço das desenfreadas "Doomed To Death" e "Death To All" - magistralmente executadas nas guitarras -, este disco é um assomo de bom gosto thrash com o tal espírito ancestral que é, no fundo, o mais difícil de impregnar nos trabalhos feitos dentro do género na actualidade.

"Fire Unleashed" surpreende pela sua veia NWOBHM, sendo que a inovação e imprevisibilidade não são para aqui chamados. Cada vez mais este é dos géneros mais estanques, mas também mais duradoiros. Já se percebeu que é na força dos riffs e na javardice das batidas que o thrash se sustenta como um género de excelência, mais do que qualquer pressuposto vanguardista. Os Perpetratör surpreendem precisamente por vestir na perfeição essa pele. Tem-se a sensação de que já se ouviu tudo o que está aqui, mas a força que este disco emana não deixa ninguém indiferente. Virtuosismo, frontalidade, maturidade e irreverência. Prometendo um Verão nuclear para derreter muita barriga de cerveja e neurónio. [8/10] N.C.

Review on Voices From The Darkside

PERPETRATÖR comes from Portugal, a country rarely associated with good Thrash Metal, but these guys are about to change this perception. This cassette version (limited to 200 copies) of "Thermonuclear Epiphany" which I'm dissecting here was released by Caverna Abismal Records, while Stormspell and Dark Lore Records took care of the CD version. So in my paws I have a die-hard analog copy, which sounds just great and contains 9 tracks of no-frills, fast, aggressive and headbanging Thrash Metal. Obviously these guys aren't novices when it comes to playing Metal, they've also been playing with bands like FILII NIGRANTIUM INFERNALIUM, RAVENSIRE, OMISSION and others, so there's no doubt about playing abilities. "Thermonuclear Epiphany" offers the whole spectrum of Thrash Metal, the songs are varied and definitely not formulaic, far from it. You've got fast, bone breaking thrashers like 'Pyres In The Night' or SLAYER-esque 'Doomed To Death', but also there are longer, more involved, mid-paced songs where their NWOBHM influences come shinging through, for example on the brilliant 'Fire Unleashed' and 'Shadow Of A Man'. The sound isn't over-polished, the mix is clear but still bloody raw, in fact PERPETRATÖR is all about old school Speed / Thrash Metal sound (Teutonic style!!!), so I won't be dropping too many other bands' names here, but the singer's voice reminds me of the mix between Schmier (DESTRUCTION) and Tom Angleripper (SODOM) - you know, raspy, hateful and tearing shit off the walls! After a few listens you want more and more, so this is a sign of a good Thrash Metal. Damn, those riffs and solos are face melting for sure and the energy is overflowing with lava!! And without any hesitation whatsoever, I recommend you to check these Portuguese Thrashers as fast as you can and see if you still can grab this limited tape. They've also just released a split 7" EP with none other than mighty HELLBASTARD, so you might wanna hunt for that as well. https://cavernaabismal.bandcamp.com, www.facebook.com/perpetratorthrash

Mindaugas "Plix" Lapinskas


By the way, the new album is already on the works and it is going to be released, maybe this year already, in CD format by Stormspell, and in Tape by Caverna Abismal Records.
