Gnarly, confrontational, and relentless – Overt Enemy know how to deliver their thrash with Texan charm. After catching attention with their début EP Inception (including a spot in horror flick The Blood Tapes), the quartet are back and hungry for more. This time round, Possession is what drives them, and the five-track EP certainly has the right kind of maniacal frenzy.

“Possession” opens with a loud and no-frills bang, setting the town ablaze before retreating in time for the next volley. The next three tracks are stellar salvos of thundering drumming from Jaime Ayala and frenetic guitar work – Leo Ortiz and Rob Hahn have a strong partnership, underpinned by Slayerella’s muscular bass playing. “In The End We Died” is especially strong, tinged with orchestral parts to drive home the song’s war-torn message – complete, as with the others, with shout-along sections to raise the rafters. To round out, there’s no better way to finish this speed run that with a cover of the almighty Slayer – “At Dawn They Sleep”, a fan favorite rendered faithfully by a band who double up as the best Slayer tribute in North America.

Possession is a phenomenal second release from Overt Enemy, and one that thrash fans cannot afford to miss. The band are aiming high, and judging by the dedication in their music, they won’t miss.

Possession will be available worldwide on August 9th 2019.
