I don’t care about trends, and I’m glad that bands like Eldergaad don’t either. Right now, metal is all about doom. If you’re into gloomy, stonery, Sabbathy stuff, the metal section is full of it. I’m not super into that. A few years ago though, there was a big thrash resurgence. I was way into that. Of course, I was way into thrash when I was twelve. I was into thrash during the thrash resurgence, and now that it has died out and been replaced with a new fad, I’m still into thrash! Eldergaad is too. There will be no slow headbanging while listening to this disc. This shit moves fast, despite the epic length of some of the songs. It’s very old school, with a lot of riffing, a lot of wild solos, and a lot of fun.
