TROOPS OF TERROR
TROOPS OF TERROR
Chacal Death
(Rawblackult Productions)
09:15min

Once infected you won't get rid of the plague. It's a statement quite true for the Death Metal scene. In the case of TROOPS OF TERROR it's the situation as some of the members of this quite new outfit were active in other Peruvian bands as KRANIUM, ILLAPA, SARAM, BELZEC, REPUGNANCIA or the old Peruvian Death Metal band CONTUMACY. Their demo "Fall Of The Structure" of CONTUMACY was recently released on black wax (7" EP) through Putrescence Records. Now these guys gathered themselves under a new moniker called TROOPS OF TERROR who just released their debut demo "Chacal Death" as tape through Bolivian Rawblackult Productions. Once we got them, we won't let them leave the underground. 2 tracks in the summarized playing time of 9:15 minutes are offered here and presented in a professional way. Professional printed booklet with pictures, song titles, thanks list are offered on a labeled tape. I'm not sure anymore if I'm happy with tape-releases, for sure it's old-fashioned and old-fashioned is mostly good when talking about Death Metal. Nevertheless I think to listen to CDs is far more comfortable, though I don't want to start a discussion here and I take it as it is. The 2 songs on this tape ('Chacal Death' and 'Sacrifice For The Emperor') offer early nineties influenced Death Metal with huge hints of very old DEATH and especially very old SEPULTURA. The South-American Death Metal flair of the times when SEPULTURA released their "Morbid Visions" is there all the time. This might sound unpolished to some or supportable to others. I count myself to the last group of persons and therefore I put my thumbs up for this release. What I want to say is that TROOPS OF TERROR's start worked just well with this raw, definitely not perfect but charming Death Metal demo and I hope to have them continue with another release soon to prove that the real Death Metal underground is going on strong in South America right now.
