Perpetrator - Altered Beast Award winner

Altered Beast
by Craig Rider at 08 February 2018, 7:54 AM

Metal maniacs, rejoice! I’m proud to present to you: PERPETRATÖR; signed via Caverna Abismal Records, hailing from French grounds - performing Thrash Metal, on their 2nd album entitled: “Altered Beast” (released January 31st, 2018).

Since formation in 2008; the quintet in question have one full-length album entitled: “Thermonuclear Epiphany” (released January 29th, 2014), a Split entitled: “Hellbastard” (released December 22nd, 2014) and this here record: “Altered Beast”. 11 thrashing tracks; ranging at around 38:21, the quartet incorporate hard-hitting Thrash Metal arrangements, PERPETRATÖR develop an intricately designed formula of distinctively progressive technicalities as with the first track “Alter Of The Skull”; I’m introduced to a concrete slab of solid orchestrations that just keeps me captivated, as well as motivated with relentlessly stimulating velocity, which gallops with thumping adroitness and catchy excellence - great stuff so far.

Consisting of Rick on vocals/bass guitar, the frontman delivers a consistently complex adaptation of razor-sharp vocalization and pulverizing bass attributions. “Extreme Barbarity” is a 2:39 crushing groover; showcasing deadly hostility from dexterous duo Paulão & Marouco on guitars, efficiently demonstrating savagely sinister riffs and solos that are energetically enlightening. “The Doors Of Perception” distributes blisteringly thunderous executions that balances with a barrage of frenzied assaults of rampaging melodies and rapidly swift nimbleness. “Fires Of Sacrifice” establishes more battering salubriousness, as drummer Ângelo Sexo pummels his set with a powerful punchline of bouncy yet crunchy foundations.

Lethal Manhunt” contrasts with a grandiose manifestation of furious speed and hammering power, dynamically upscaling the sound production with excelling malevolent malignance. “A Fleeting Passage Through Hell” has distinguished songwriting stability, balanced with profusely robust vehemence. “Terminal Possession” has hasty creativity; which fabricates constructive attention to detail that has maddening, chaotic mayhem of energetic craftsmanship. “Jungle War” primitively showcased more intense brutality, immensely blasting with sheer aggression and battering ramifications. “Hellthrasher” is perhaps my favourite, just think of MEGADETH’s “Headcrusher”.

Overall concluding with “Black Sacristy”; this was certainly a record worthy of my time, if you need a new discovery of proficient Thrash Metal done right - look no further.
