Oppression – State Of War [Demo]

oppression – state of war [demo]

Info

Demo number four from his Swedish band. I can say I’m very very curious about the previous three now! Since 2003 Oppression have released a demo every year with three or four new songs. Is this a band that will eventually get a record deal? I surely hope so, cause they harbour quality. Oppression does not sound Swedish at all. Evil Dead, Acid Reign, Heathen, Metallica, Defiance, Testament. Should I could go on? Thrash metal it is then.

Everything makes sence on this demo. The production, the raw but melodic and very old fashioned eighties vocals, thrashing riffs and most noticable great bassplaying by Fredrik Petersson including the sharp Greg Christian / D.D. Verni sound. So, what can Oppression improve to ensure a place in history and a record deal? Writing catchier songs for starters.
Because that is what made the classic thrash bands from the eighties legendary. Songs that people can recognise and remember. Beside that, Oppression certainly understands all the tricks and details to make energetic powerful thrash metal. Plenty of room for improvement but great already.
