The Swiss Death / Thrash band with the silly name was founded in 1999, their first MCD “Rise Up Your Soul” was released in 2001 and received very positive reactions. Now SHORTS & CHURCHBELLS second MCD “The Underworld” containing six new songs is available and offers well-crafted thrashing Metal with a vocal mix of raw Hardcore shouts and Death Metal growls that I personally did not like that much, it is a bit monotonous. Musically the four guys are definitely better, straight into your face Thrash with a couple of cool riffs, lots of drive and energy. I guess that SHORTS & CHURCHBELLS kick serious ass on stage, because their stuff is absolutely perfect for live gigs. Check them out, if you like Metal that does not take itself too serious!
