It can hardly be argued that thrash metal is making a huge comeback. It too can hardly be contested that the best thrash metal music was released between the years of 1984 and 1988. Fast forward two decades later and BLATANT DISARRAY's new album, Everyone Dies Alone, is not just a "throwback" to that era, but sounds more like an album that could have easily prospered in the genre's glory days with a definite nod to metal greats Metallica and Testament. Everyone Dies Alone's raw and organic tones courtesy of Grammy nominated producer John Custer (think Corrosion Of Conformity's Blind) are reminiscent of the classic metal era which existed long before the advent and extensive over-use of slick engineering tricks which have only helped to homogenize the scene.
With over 200 shows under their belts and having shared the stage with veteran acts such as Anthrax, Metal Church, Lamb Of God and W.A.S.P. the band have been able to hone their razor sharp attack in front of thrash metal's customary critical horde. BLATANT DISARRAY wears their influences on their sleeves proudly and stand firmly planted in the greatest era metal has even known. Sometimes dwelling in the past isn't such a terrible thing is it? We don't think so.
