YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…Terry, vocalist of Shenzhen-based hardcore band Sick Reaction, sent me a message and said that I HAD to check out this insane thrash metal band from Jiangxi in China called Explosicum. Man – he was TOTALLY right to be super stoked on this band…
The band has been around since 2005 and their second album, the all killer no filler Chinese thrash metal classic Raging Living which is streaming below, is stacked wall to wall with insane riffs and the speed that makes thrash metal such a favorite amongst punk and hardcore kids all over the world! Not only do they keep things nice and traditional in song structure, riffage, squealing guitar solos, and that infamous high-pitched scream, but the sickest part of this insane madness is that everything is sung in Chinese. Now THAT’S sick! Great way to show you how music can crossover into so many different parts of the world and where people make it their own.
Check out this band on their Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Explosicum?fref=ts
But blast their full length loud and spread the word about this band…remember that China still has Facebook, youtube and instagram blocked…these bands in China only have YOU the listener outside of China that can help spread the word about their bands…if you’re into what you hear below – thrash metal sung in Chinese – then let the world know…post this shit up on your sites, blogs, spread it amongst friends etc…keep metal united all over the world!
