The WounDead are a band from Israel, that play a blend of hi speed Hardcore and thrash. I can’t remember the last time I actually reviewed a band from this part of the world, but if the scene is pumping out bands of this calibre, then I want to hear more of it!

The WounDead’s new EP is entitled Metamorphosis, 4 tracks of hard hitting Crossover. The WounDead actually remind me of the mid 90’s Scandinavian thrash era, bands such as The Haunted, Hatesphere, Darkane spring to mind. Relentless heavy riffs pulverising through the ear drums. Vocally, I am constantly reminded of Phil Rind of Sacred Reich blended with Agnostic Front’s Roger Miret, very powerful, direct and to the point.

I can strongly recommend The WounDead to any fan of Thrash, Crossover, Hardcore. A truly crushing EP, and hopefully a full length album soon, as I for one would certainly go and buy it straight away.
