Really a band named HAIR BALLS? I mean, ugh... oh, well. This seems to be a re-release of this rather obscure Russian Thrash Metal band. I must say that the production is VERY heavy and well done, it could easily pass as a Bay Area Thrash band. The influences range from early METALLICA, HEATHEN, VIO-LENCE, ANTHRAX, EXORDER and EXODUS. Yes, I know, nothing you have not been faced before, but still I must say it is pretty well done, and it has something that many Thrash Metal bands from today lack. Of course with that band name and song titles like 'Married To A Beer' you know they are more into having fun with the lyrics. Vocal wise it reminds me of Joey Belladona. And I also must admit they do have some tasty guitar solos. So basically if you were, or are a fan of Bay Area Speed / Thrash you could do no wrong by checking this out. You probably have heard it all, but still the sound brings back good memories. https://zombierecords666.bandcamp.com, www.satanath.com
