𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Fuel pumping tight & energetic of fast cut-throat shredding of the riffs, a hint of tugging of grooviest, with ravage/raunchy pickings of the bass

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Floor-pounding- demolition drum patterns & blast beats

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Trinity Terror is like a ticking time bomb, soon as that play button is press, this EP and only over fourteen minutes, packs one hell of a punch


Cruel Bomb is a three-piece thrash metal act, hailing from Wilkes-Barre, PA, that just don't bring us hard and fast thrash metal to the table, these bad arses captures the spiritual essence of the big four thrash metallers, (-Esque (leaning more towards) old-school Slayer aggression and sound) tint of Pantera grooviest while crossing paths with hardcore punk bands like GBH, Discharge & Bad Religion while throwing in modern and sharp music, production and adrenaline action anthem vibe into the mix


I feel like Cruel Bomb will make a name for themselves, their Trinity Terror release is every thrash/hardcore punk fan dream come true, what more could you ask for in a short album release, that throws everything at you in one go; this is like a full-on nuclear explosion of full-on aggression, brutalization, oppressive sound, insane thundering fast guitar-shredding, gut-busting drumming, impressive vocals (sounds like the singer is about burst a blood vessel); overall of sickness, violent, high-speed adrenaline, anthem vibe, strong-song/writing structure, bursting of the ear-drums, brain-melting, surely get your blood pumping and your head banging & skillfully and carefully put-together while wearing their influences on their sleeves


*outstanding craftsmanship & musicianship* *entertaining & well-executed*

*mind-blowing* *thoroughly enjoyable release* *excellent*



Pure Thrash Metal
