A Little Bit of Information About Infernal Thrashing Holocaust and the Band Fastkill

Infernal Thrashing Holocaust is the 2004 debut album by Japanese thrash metal band Fastkill. As the band’s name implies, these guys are really freaking fast! And the songs are very short, not lasting for more than a few minutes in length. This album is even shorter than Slayer’s 1986 studio album Reign in Blood. However, if you are expecting that kind of masterpiece from this short album that is clearly not what you will hear.

Infernal Thrashing Holocaust is Dominated by High Pitched Vocals and Speed

Instead, what is on this album is extremely fast riffing combined with vocals that are of a really high screeching noise. Is It similar to a screeching cat? Similar maybe but it is not like Dani of the band Cradle of Filth but screams that are so high pitched that words can’t really describe this sound. The first track is just some spoken dialogue and then a minute later, the riffing with the bass guitar kicks in and this speed is nothing like you will hear in the rest of this 28 minute album.

The #1 Con About the Album...The Vocals

Lyrically Infernal Thrashing Holocaust centers on topics that are graphic and needless to say not pleasant. I guess they took a page out of the band Cannibal Corpse’s book. The lead guitar work does resemble 1980’s Slayer in terms of the speed but my goodness, the vocals really bring down the score for this album! The vocals for the band Sacrifice were bad too but they were not THIS bad!

Infernal Thrashing Holocaust... A Brief Review

Sense of Ignorance which is the third song has a decent riff as you can briefly hear the bass guitar playing. As the song mentions, hate will only breed more hate as the pain is felt y the person that feels it. Ignorance is also sometimes not very good either. I hear a sort of modern Sacred Reich in this song. We hear the screams of the words “sense of ignorance” three straight times as this is followed by a scream. If the band was trying to create a thrash metal album that focuses solely on massive speed and screams of a very high pitch, they might as well be given a grand prize for accomplishing those two things. Agony is a song that describes the chaos that is combined with the mistrust and the impending fall of humanity but interpreting the songs becomes very difficult as the screams of the vocals get drowned in the riffing. If this band wants to attract a larger following, they should change vocalists and clean up their lyrical content a bit and not focus so much on the evilness of the world. Then of course, the riffing becomes redundant as the same musical structure dominates. As the album ends, the last song called Eternal Pain has a long drum part which might as well be considered a drum solo. Even Japanese bands can do better than what is heard on this short 28 minute thrash metal album that is similar to Slayer but sadly not as good.

Final rating as of this first full listen through: 65 points out of 100
