Sylosis - Dormant Heart

Britain's Sylosis neatly cut out the generics of not one but two of metal's categories in their flexible fusion of melodic death metal and thrash. Theirs is a specifically fresh and individual approach, wilfully endeavouring to set themselves apart as an evident outlier in modern metal. With the push for originality which many contemporary bands in melodic death would set out to achieve by incorporating variations of thrash or metalcore into their sound, the former exceeds its foundations in the style and success of Dormant Heart.

Sammath

Sammath was formed in 1994 by Jan Kruitwagen. Inspired by the new wave of black metal and the speed metal/death metal hybrids of the eighties, Kruitwagen grew up in Australia listening to other acts of a high-intensity caliber. In 1989, he moved to Europe and began to make his mark on the metal scene, working for cult underground magazines such as Violent Moshground and Hell Razor.

Within a year after the band's founding the first promo tape Visions upon Winter Lands was recorded. Soon after this tape, Kruitwagen got in contact with M. Gertsen. Gertsen played only a small role within Sammath, dealing with the recording. The following demo Zwaardbroeders bij de bergengte (Brothers of the Sword at the Mountain Pass) was released in 1996 and sold over 650 copies, thanks to great help from the underground. From the first demo several tracks appeared on compilation tapes worldwide.

Cripper - Hyëna

With thrash's innovative period long gone, the only way to judge the worth of any thrash band is the quality of songs they churn out. And whilst some of the old guys ala Testament or Death Angel can still crank out some good headbanging, riffy yet catchy tunes, most of the new school rethrash mob have proven to be stuck in neutral when it comes to song writing. Cripper seems to break that mould somewhat even if they stay safely within the confines of traditional thrash for the most part.
