Review: Psython – Outputs (UK, 2016)

I’m not a big thrash fan anymore. Well, it’s been a good 10 years since I’ve last been, and I personally think that after the 80s\90s trend, this style has not much else to offer artistically speaking.

That being said though, a nice old-school driving riff can still please anyone and you’ll find lots of riffage to munch upon in Psython’s latest effort Outputs. Pedal riffs, gallops, you name it. Solos reflect the old school vibe too.
The LP totally lies in the traditional, kind of “one-size-fits-all” thrash aesthetic, so I don’t really have a standout track nor anything special to point out.
A little critique I’d have to externalize is that the band sounds totally clueless in the rare slow-tempo sections, when the instrumentation seems to get lost in awkwardly linear and over-simplistic phrasings, both melodically and rhythmically, but hey that’s not the main point of the offer. The vocalist seems somehow weak for my taste but that’s just me.
Closing up, are you a fan of percussive, no-frills classic thrashing outrage? Psython is what you’re looking for.

I am indeed a failed guitarist, drummer and so much more! Er, I’d better write about music I like for the time being. Although my musical past has been firmly rooted in rock, punk and metal, I appreciate any kind of music as long as I find it artistically interesting. I have a split personality by which part of me likes anything musically forward-thinking, inventive or just of general “good taste”, and part of me likes being blasted by all-out intensity and dissonance.
