Sourge Assault - Lust & Misery
Out from the whiskey drenched and smoke filled bars of Italy crawls Surge Assault, a black/thrash metal band carrying on the grand tradition of combining rather primitive black metal with sleazy thrash metal. It’s a sound that’s quite to similar to fellow Italian bands Whiskey Ritual and Bunker 66, yet Surge Assault brings a unique twist to the sound. The band’s debut EP, The First Division, was released in 2012 through Lo-Fi Creations, a label stopped putting out music despite not shutting down. In 2015, the Italian label Earthquake Terror Noise released the band’s debut full length album, Lust & Misery; a nine track run through forty minutes of drunken, blackened thrashing.
