Thrash Metal - DE
Get your asses into a bunker, 'cause PRIPJAT are about to hit you! The four Amigos from Cologne, Germany are heading to a very straight direction: THRASH. And they love it – on and besides the stage. Those who have seen them live know about their energetic shows that kick the audience directly back to the 80s. But there is no room for nostalgia. The guys use all the elements that make this genre so great: Slayer, Kreator, Destruction, Megadeth, Annihilator, Testament, Violator, Artillery or Havok – you name it! This mixture is not only fun, but leaves a deep and distinct impression. The unfamiliar name has a simple story. Kirill (Vocals, Guitar) and Eugen (Guitar) both come from Kiev, Ukraine – 80 kilometers away from the Tschernobyl nuclear plant. Their own lives as well as their parents’ lives have directly been influenced by the nuclear disaster back in '86. These guys know what they are yelling about. This is often reflected in their lyrics, like in 'Liquidators', 'Acid Rain' or the title track of the upcoming record 'Sons Of Tschernobyl'. An even though the message is very important, PRIPJAT are not deadly serious all the time. There is still some room for beer, boobs, and Beelzebub. Their statement nails it: “You can only play metal credibly if you love and live it!” While the band has been existing for only three years, they still managed to play a lot of gigs and record the four track demo 'Liquidators' a year ago, which got very positive press response. Now the four amigos are about to release their first record “Sons Of Tschernobyl” with Bret Hard Records. This debut will leave a large footprint in the worldwide thrash scene for sure! The completely self recorded, mixed and mastered LP convinces not only with its energy, diversity and a pissed off attitude. The raw and forceful sound contrasts to all the high end and ass licked modern productions. What a middle finger!
