Demolition Train-Kill Your Boss


Nothing beats listening to Greek thrash early on a Saturday morning while enjoying your coffee. Not much information came with this demo so I assume it is a self-release from Demolition Train. For point of reference this four track EP is prime early Metallica. Obviously these guys grew up listening to Kill 'Em All and Ride The Lightning because Kill Your Boss sounds like it is more Bay Area retro thrash worship. The only draw back I can see (or rather hear as I listen to this one a second time through) is the fact that these tracks all sound a tad similar. Well, at least the intros to the first three tracks do. That said though there are plenty of riff happy moments and flashy solos throughout to keep things interesting. With time this sounds like another act that should be able to shake off the obviously influences and create thrash that has more of a unique sound. At this point in the game it is going to be hard for new thrash bands to sound one of a kind. It just isn't going to happen with well over 20 years of the best of the bunch already setting the bar pretty high. For bands like Demolition Train it isn't going to be easy to break out. It isn't enough to just love acts like Metallica, Megadeth, Overkill, Exodus and the rest. You've got to find your own path. It can be done and for this Greek band time will tell. Still though this one is at least fun if not overly original. Find out more below.
