Taking a thrashing mad approach and riddling it with the ever nasty stylings of death metal, Mangler treat you to eight new tracks through their debut full length Dimensions of Terror. Through and through, Mangler offer up a throw back sound yet they make it all their own. Dimensions of Terror throw eight wonderfully terrorizing and skin ripping tracks your way making your head bang and neck snap with fervor as you listen. Each track is undeniably memorable and catchy as they work their way under your skin to manifest like an (un)welcome disease.
Right out of the gate Mangler hit you with Switchblade Homicide which immediately comes barreling through your speakers with malevolence. This blasting and gritty offering is what you can come to expect from the rest of the seven tracks. Switchblade Homicide perfectly captures the murderous rampage that you are about to witness once this offering comes to a close. This track much like the following seven are relentless and hit you square in the jaw repeatedly until Mangler decides that you have had enough. Each track offers up a gritty thrashing mad sound that is sewn nicely together with gut ripping death metal to create an overall furious and ceaseless barrage of face melting metal.
Each of the eight tracks on Dimensions of Terror are well done and well executed. The musicianship throughout is tight and on point and the raspy gritty vocals bring home the overall grimy, raw and gritty sound. As a whole, Dimensions of Terror is a delightfully wicked listen as it is memorable, addicting to listen to and of course heavy. This release will get your head banging in absolutely no time at all. Each track is a ripper, flaying your flesh like its nothing and getting your neck to snap before you know it. These heavy and malicious offerings do a great job of rattling around in your head for some time to come.
Dimensions of Terror is a highly entertaining and highly addictive record. This is the type of release that is easy to get in to and easy to sit and want to listen to for hours without tiring of it. As mentioned above, each of the eight tracks on this release are incredibly memorable as they will have you doing air guitar along with them and chanting the lyrics right along with the vocalist before you know it. Overall, Dimensions of Terror is a very solid debut outing for these thrash maniacs.
You can find Dimensions of Terror right on Mangler’s Bandcamp.
