Survive: Thrash metal galore

Survive – Immortal Warriors

The latest album from Japan’s own metal stalwarts Survive is entitled Immortal Warriors and it’s a work that fuses new metals and old metal. The violent, fast, nice melodies have been pushed right to the front creating a tough and sturdy album that is interwoven with melodies that are unique to Japan.

Tokyo’s Survive are one of the longest standing metal acts in Japan. They have played many big festivals (Loud Park, Beast Fest, Multiplex-motorbike event, Korean Live Rock, Formoz Festival, Asia Metal Festival, Dongducheon Rock Festival, Trendkill Extreme Feast, etc) and toured all over the world with acts such as Behemoth, United, Killswitch Engage, Dope, Pulling Teeth, Testament, Outrage, Anthrax, Hatebleed, Napalm Death, Amon Amarth, Venom Inc, At The Gates, to name just a few.

Said about the title track Immortal Warrior, «It’s rather interesting how, despite the overall stylistic coherency Survive are able to maintain throughout the entirety of the record, and each track has its own personality. With that being said, Immortal Warriors is likely cut out to be a single, and is the most melodic track thus far. The chorus is surprisingly catchy and singalongesque but don’t let this deceive you …by the time you reach the mid-section, it’s thrash metal galore»!

Immortal Warriors is the groups 7th full length studio album, one of their very best and as an added plus contains a bonus track featuring a cover version of the Metallica classic Master Of Puppets …Survive style!

Japanese Tokyo based thrash heroes Survive began life over 20 years ago and have forged their own indelible path within the metal scene. It was back in 1998, when former Death File guitarist and mastermind Nemo decided to form a thrash metal band of his own which soon became the juggernaut known as Survive

It didn’t take long for the band to create their first demo tape and their promise was backed-up in a big way when the group embarked on a tour with legendary Japanese thrash-metallers United (whose guitarist Singo Otani also produced the demo). Soon after, Survive were ready to release their debut album Against Next, which allowed the band to tour Japan extensively and gain domestic recognition. Over the next two decades the band released 5 albums and toured intensely cementing their place in Japanese metal history.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (4365 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
