São Paulo-based heavy/thrash metal band Trendkill Inc. have been hard at work composing and recording the follow-up to their eponymous 2021 EP, after completely reinventing themselves with a new line-up.
Meanwhile, Diego Veras (vocals/rythym guitar), Ivan Santos (lead guitar), Sandro Cézzar (bass) and Alexandre Fontana (drums) haven’t been idle, focusing on shaping the cohesion, sound and new stuff with many gigs.
One of these shows was their excellent performance at the Thrash disConcert Festival at RedStar Studios in São Paulo/SP last July, along with the bands Tosco and Faces Of Death. The festival was highly acclaimed by all the attending press and fans.
And now all their fans, or rather all fans of classic heavy metal full of melody, well seasoned with the cadenced weight of Bay Area thrash metal, have the result of this incredible night for Trendkill Inc..
On September 3rd, the first live album of their career was released on all streaming platforms and as a video on the band’s YouTube channel under the title “Live At Thrash disConcert”.
Listen to “Live At Thrash disConcert” at:
Watch “Live At Thrash disConcert” at:
There are 9 tracks, 5 of which are updated, energetic, pulsating versions of the eponymous debut EP (played in its entirety) and 4 new, previously unreleased songs that showcase the fertile range of influences in the band’s DNA: Metallica, Anthrax, Pantera, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, Helloween and Judas Priest.
Commenting on the event, Diego Veras said: “We were honored to be able to take part in such a well-organized event, in a venue with a state-of-the-art structure, and with all the collective effort of the three bands, our team, the press, friends and fans present, everything worked together to make it an unforgettable night. We’re already looking forward to the next edition of this event.”
The idea of a live album by Trendkill Inc. came about in an unusual way, but not so much because the idea of recording the show was already there. “It was our press agent Johnny Z. (of JZ Press) who gave us the idea to release it as a live album and officially record this current line-up, which is so cohesive and full of chemistry. Ultimately, I think it was a wise decision and it worked (laughs)”, explains Diego.
Currently, Trendkill Inc. is focused on composing the other songs that will be part of the quartet’s long-awaited full-length album, due out in Q1 2024, but everyone can already feel the power of what’s to come in the unreleased tracks from “Live At Thrash disConcert”: “Corrupted, Corrosion”, “Metal Man”, “Fear” and “DWTH (Down Wy To Hell)”.
