Who invented it? Exactly, the Swiss. At „Expenzer“ Thrash Metal der etwas zeitgemässeren Sorte angesagt, the Swiss were not only of her compatriot VO. Produces powder, but also materially from its work at „Gurd“ affected. But also various Swedish Acts, who have a penchant for Bay Area, scheinen auf den Plattentellern der fünf Musiker in Dauerrotation zu laufen, most notably „The Haunted“. Thus, the Swiss do not have the Thrash Metal (new)fictional, aber die gute alte Härte mit kleinen musikalischen Sahnehäubchen und dazu die unbändige Spielfreude machenExpenzer“ an experience of international class. Clever and witty Metal from Switzerland in a fantastic artwork! „Expenzer“ have sold their souls to the thrash metal and that's good!

Expenzer - Kill The Conductor

Aus der Asche Pigskin’s machten sich die verbliebenen Jungs im Frühling 2014 to work and so crawled „Expenzer“ Licht years! Die Band teilte sich bereits mit Genregrössen wie Kreator, Father und Satyricon die Bretter, still always mean the world. The thrash quintet from the Swiss Siebnen consists of Renato Burkhard (guitars), Pieric Grosjean (guitars), Reto Bachmann (drums), Gregor Luther (bass) und Tom Kapeller (Vocals) and brings Bay Area in the Modern. But even friends of cultivated Death Metal will get their money, especially those, die es verspielt mögen, Because „Expenzer“ können einiges an ihren Instrumenten und beweisen dies, in which you install some progressive and deathige elements, ohne dabei überladen zu wirken.

With „Kill The Conductor“ thrashen uns elf Songs das Hirn aus dem Schädel. Each song is well thought out and actually it is indeed at „Kill The Conductor“ um ein Thrash Metal-Album, but much is processed on. Teilweise wird man vulgär bedient und bekommt einen Arschtritt á laPANTERA“ or „Machine Head, and then switch to the modernity and how loszudonnern „The Haunted“ in its heyday. The technique and the riffs of bands like „Testament“ or „Exodus“ will indeed repeatedly buyers in Europe and also „Expenzer“ operate there, without claws. Here and there may a bit „Slayer“ not missing and to the part is produced very fat. „Kill The Conductor“ was in Little Creek Studio in Gelterkinden of VO. Received powder, mixed and mastered. Das Label „Czar of Bullets“ throws it on the market and must be more than satisfied, because this mixture of Siebnen ballert really neat, does not sound like 08/15 and makes more than just fun.

Musically goes with „Kill The Leader“ nothing wrong, On the contrary, it is announced demolition! for this, that the band only recently at the start, acting already at a very high technical playing and compositional Level. Die Riffs sägen herrlich und die Uptempo-Parts knallen mit Nachdruck. The title track is after the opener „Bitter End“ equal to a face-Tip, den ich hier hervorheben möchte. With „Play For The Deaf“ comes a very varied track and therefore in my view probably one of the best songs of „Kill The Conductor“. In „Unicorn“ stings purely musical guitar with the horny Solis and the very tech robotic vocal effect out. Cool idea, to stand out from the crowd something, dennoch ausbaufähig, würde ich meinen. to „light Speed Heart Beat“ There are also Video, the should check it necessarily follow. With „Silence Of The Amps“ gibt es einen überaus melodischen Song, who has everything, was eine Abrissbirne benötigt: Groove, Speed, Melody and a really big, dem Song dienliche, Vocal Performance. a song, den man gleich wieder zurück skippen möchte, um ihn gleich noch einmal zu hören. As a bouncer is still the aforementioned „The Haunted“ with the cover song „Chasm“ gehuldigt.

„Kill The Conductor“ is definitely a cool Thrash-Groove Metal disc, kept very straight, without much ado in the mid-tempo. This has sometimes resulted, dass gerade zum Ende der Platte eine kreative Flaute Einzug hält, who knows but with knotless songs and a continuous fire at Reef violence to compensate for the quintet again. Cool is also, is that „Expenzer“ not really subordinate to the classic Thrash, but each looking the song. The song defines the means and not vice versa. What you're looking for a little, is the hit potential, denn trotz den melodischen Momenten kann man keine Ohrwürmer ausmachen. Compositionally the eleven Thrash grenades are good, doch sind etliche Vibes noch ausbaufähig. Als Debüt darf man sich jedoch stolz auf die Schultern klopfen, because the constant change between melody, Groove und kernigen Thrash Attacken sind gut und bohren sich gewaltig in den Gehörgang. Thus secure nor some air upwards open, But the first idea „Kill The Conductor“ very good and it will be interesting, what does the future! Who „The Haunted“ mag und den jüngsten Werdegang der Veteranen nicht sonderlich begrüsst, found in „Expenzer“ and „Kill The Conductor“ eine zuverlässige Ersatzdroge!
