There exist many metalheads out there who say the last of the great thrash bands died out in the 80s and early 90s. Those that claim this have clearly not heard of Brazilian metal masters, Violator, the forerunners in this ?New Wave of Thrash Metal? trend, who, with their new release ?Scenarios of Brutality?, show that thrash is still a viable force in metal. After listening to this record, one thing is clear, the band?s main focus has always been to produce a 100% pure aggressive, in-your-face traditional thrash metal album. Another important factor which shines in this album are the arrangements, bucking the one riff, one song trend by stuffing every track with at least four or five riffs. Simply put, this is a phenomenal sounding metal record.
