"Slayer clones" seems to be the standard description for this new Indiana quartet, who have debuted with One (Hellbound) on the Metal Blade label in 2006. And yes, if one disregards the vocals for the moment, then Slayer is without question a major soundalike, from the riffing, song structures, guitar leads, even some Lombardo-esque drum fills. Vocalist Nate Olp doesn't sound at all like Tom Araya, instead going for a more deathy rasp, arguably less distinctive than Araya or anyone else for that matter (in other words, the vocals are rather samey). In time the band may well choose to branch out in another direction, or at least vary things a bit to avoid the continual comparisons to Slayer. But for now, One is an excellent modern thrash album, and really, this album is every bit as good as the last few Slayer releases (a compliment to both bands).
