Introduction to the Band Violator

Thrash metal has found its way to Brazil. The extended play album called Violent Mosh by Brazilian thrash metal band Violator is an example of decent thrash metal that is still exciting in its own way. The album was released in 2004.

This Short Album Has Influences Ranging from Metallica to The Haunted With a Modern Twist

There is a chant of “here we go” in the second song Thrash Maniacs. The song is about a person that is mentally vacant. Just because he has a lot of money this money can’t buy him his attitude. Someone that lives life like a lie will only get praise from people that are like him on a vibration level. Thrash metal is here to stay and dominate and Violator is a band that gets the job done with this short album even if the music sounds generic. There is a definite modern twist to this album and I hear a lot of Metallica influence in this album.

The Songs... and the Greatness of the Album

However, the album begins with The Haunted influenced song called Let the Violation Begin. The song is basically about what happens when the police begin to track others down and make their lives a living hell. The song is about what happens when the legal system of a country is so corrupt that the crimes are forgotten and the cops end up being worse than the criminals that they should be pursuing. The album is like a way for the band to express that they are tired of the status quo and the flaws of mankind. The song is a song about wanting to address what they are sick of by starting a war but as history has shown, wars only lead to more wars in the end. The Plague Never Dies is another Metallica influenced song that is about a force or a group of people that are coming with one objective in mind and that is to destroy everything in their path which is what a plague does. For the fact that this extended play album is only just over 28 minutes long it is a very entertaining 28 minutes of songs that address the flaws of the status quo and the state of the world that we live in. The Shadow of Death is a song about a soldier that is going to war and he feels like he is fighting this war for no reason. The album ends with the song Killer Instinct which is a fast song about the fact that no matter how hard humans try, they cannot create a perfect society. Natural selection is not fair as the world is stacked against most people. Or is the world that rough? Regardless of that, this extended play album Violent Mosh is an outstanding thrash metal work that has fast solos, good vocals, and songs that work well together.
