Children of Technology – Mayhemic Speed Anarchy EP (Hells Headbangers Records)

Formed 2007 childrenand hailing from Italy they have been a busy band with 10+ releases behind them. Here on offer is 80’s thrash with punk influences along the lines of Trench Hell and to a lesser extent the likes of Destroyer666.

The production is excellent and the two 3 minute songs rush by in a flash. The riffs are catchy and addictive, my only criticism is that the speech and outro are hinting too much at a comedy angle which does detract from the sheer power of these tracks.

The 2nd track is a cover of Black Uniforms who were a Swedish punk band who appear to have taken most of their influences from the likes of Discharge, Bad Brains and Dead Kennedys. A satisfying punky thrash workout sounding similar to Toxic Holocaust.

The 7” single format still is the greatest way in which to discover new bands – short and to the point, not hard on the pocket and collectable.
