LAZARUS AD
BLACK RIVERS FLOW
METAL BLADE

Wisconsin-based thrash metal squad Lazarus AD demonstrate no sign of the sophomore slump on their bruising new release BLACK RIVERS FLOW. This quartet acutely balance modern thrash nuances with a hearty smattering of Pantera-esque groove, a bevy of tasty guitar licks (“Light A City”) and the golden era of thrash metal’s unbreakable spirit firmly in place (“Through Your Eyes”), resulting in a triumphant offering that comprises a hellacious hybrid of Exodus, Machine Head, and Unearth guaranteed to get the blood flowing and the dance floor moving (“Casting Forward”). Despite being covered by countless bands numerous times over, Lazarus AD does an admirable job of recreating familiar breakneck tones without wearing out their welcome, blending vocal snarls, crisp guitars, and walloping bottom end with workmanlike expedience and reverence to the history of the genre at the forefront of their assault.
