Daniel Orozco This is a total thrash-terpiece from a land you wouldn't expect there to be much thrash metal. These guys are fucking great! They can definitely hang with the big hitters of neo thrash. Favorite track: Exalter - Throat Cutters.

Wonderbox Metal Authentic, honest Thrash that's aggressive and song-based is surprisingly hard to come across these days, so bands like Exalter are quite the find.

Bangladeshi thrash metal group Exalter fire up three sizzling songs that uphold the spirit of the genre without diluting even an iota of the essence. The music is as old school as it can get but the songs sound pristine and sharp enough to slice ears. Also included in this release are songs from the entire previous release called 'Democrasodomy' which sound just as potent and invigorating even today. Exalter step up to the plate after the initial onslaught by West Bengal band Armament, and take it upon themselves to further the thrash metal assault worldwide. There is no band worthier to do so from the whole of Indian subcontinent, equipped with an aggressive sound, vicious vocals, and an innate anger that invariably gets expressed through the hard-hitting music. To call their music lethal would be an understatement.
