Whether Acid Age was on acid when thinking of the title for their newest offering is a mystery yet to be solved. Whether it is truth or not I can’t say, but what I can say is that this album is packed with thrash metal goodness. LARCHIAFOCR is eight total songs of neck breaking thrash that takes no prisoners and when the listen is over you may just look like one of the rabbits you see above. Acid Age is uncompromising and unrelenting in their thrash assault as they take off like a rocket right off the bat and from then on what you get is thrashing and hell raising metal.
Acid Age calls their brand of thrash “hyper thrash” and for a good reason. “Slow” isn’t a word that is in their vocabulary and if anything they try to play as fast as they can to rip your fucking face off as quick as they can. Each song is played full tilt and played as loud as they could get it which means that you should play it as loud as you can. LARCHIAFOCR is the type of album that when you listen to it in a car you don’t know how fast you really are going and sooner or later you end up hitting 120 with a fleet of cops chasing you down.
These Belfast thrash heathens have created an album that is highly volatile and violent and while listening you feel an uncontrollable urge to headbang until your neck is just a bloody stump. As soon as you press play you are overcome with thrashing rage that makes you want to incite riots and start up a mosh pit with your entire city. You can try all you want to not headbang and fuck shit up, but sooner or later you will succumb to the sheer speed and face shredding ability of this brand of thrash.
All throughout this release you get lightning fast riffs coupled with finger exploding solos, writhing bass lines, downhill drumming and vocals that are screamed at you from every angle. There isn’t any mistaking what you have as soon as you press play. This is unmistakable, hellish and barbaric thrash metal. Each song seems to be fuel injected and pumped with enough thrash fury to kill a man.
Overall, this record supplies you with heavy and head caving thrash to the point where your brain will get bruised. No matter how badly you are beaten after listening you always find yourself coming back for more and more. LARCHIAFOCR is an infectious listen as well as one that is built for anyone who is even remotely interested in thrash or heavy metal for that matter. To make the album even better they slapped a prank call to the end of the record as well. LARCHIAFOCR is a solid release that is heavy and gets you to headbang until you can’t anymore and provides you with your fix of thrash metal and then some.
