The Skinny: Finland’s Unhoped play relentless, in-your-face thrash a la old school vets like Slayer, Overkill and Death Angel. However, despite their old-school sound, the band don’t come across as Bay area thrash knockoff wannabees. Instead, this is the type of stuff that the old-school thrashers will love just as much as the kids who are now getting into the genre.
“Art of War (Written in Blood)” is from the band’s second album, Die Harder which was self-released in September of 2011. “Art of War” is a fantastic introduction to the band and their intense thrash sound. Download it now, check out Die Harder online and bang your head!
