The Nicaraguan thrashers Schizoid have released another single called Alters, at what a great track it is! The track is an instrumental, but with such an awesome riff driven thrashterpiece who needs lyrics?!

The track reminds me a little of Death’s Cosmic Sea on some levels with the harmonics, whereas the riffs are from a different planet! The ferocity in the riffs are just out of this world! I’ve heard a lot of thrash over the last 30 odd years, but Schizoid have taken the genre into a new level. The drums just pound straight through like a barrage of mortars being fired at rapid speed towards oncoming enemy.

Once again Schizoid have raised the bar for thrash metal, and for metal music in Nicaragua! A truly great band that everyone should listen to.
