Amken – Adrenaline Shot

 As a debut album, “Adrenaline Shot” packs a wild punch just from the cover art but also from the blistering pace that Greek thrash metallers Amken took with this EP.

The entirety of this album has this raw, horrid (not in a bad way) feel to it that I dare to call this “horror thrash” because it tells of things gruesome and just straight up gory in every extent to the word and even plays itself out quite nicely in the cover art for the EP.

While “Adrenaline Shot” isn’t quite as fast as some other thrash metal albums I’ve heard over the years it is definitely fast and has that feel of lightning to it that properly done thrash should have all the time as all the great thrash albums do, and I do say that this EP could mean the beginning of a great career for the up and coming Greeks.
