The long-overdue return of pure Thrash to BlackMetal.com Records! Greek olympian alkowarriors DRUNKARD unleash their much-anticipated full-length debut-album "Hellish Metal Dominate", featuring 10 tracks (39 minutes) of alcohol-fueled Unholy Thrashing Black Metal in praise of blasphemy and Satan! In the maniac tradition of "Headbangers Against Disco", DRUNKARD will certainly prove essential to fans of our DEKAPITATOR, old SLAYER, and Sweden's BEWITCHED or THE CROWN!
Prior to "Hellish Metal Dominate", DRUNKARD's first demo was released by Deathstrike Records, the German label owned by members of Teutonic Thrashers NOCTURNAL and FRONT BEAST!
Total Alcoholic Death!

"It’s more lethal than receiving a nail spiked baseball bat to the skull 500 times. It’s more deadly than 5 million piranhas ascending upon a scuba diving troupe. It’s more tremendous than having to face the wrath of OVAH-KILL. This is the one of the greatest Thrash albums ever conceived, even better than Torture Squad’s 'Pandemonium'. Hailing from Greece, Drunkard are so krieg that it hurts. So old-school that you would think they were stuck here in a time warp. This is THRASH of the highest order!
"The riffs keep coming, exploding like an endless thunderstorm. The songs slay endlessly, like millions of razors descending upon a city of poseurs. Bassist/Vocalist Sawas barks out Metal Commands that would make Tom Angelripper himself stand and salute. The best thing to compare this to is 'Pleasure To Kill', but remove all the parts where emphasis is put on melody alone (you wont find anything like 'Riot Of Violence' on here). Even so, the album is glazed with mind-fucking solos, and riff, upon riff, upon motherfucking riff.
"Every song is an assault of violent, innards-ripping German-style Thrash that never cools down or softens up. The intensity is overwhelming. If you like anything remotely resembling Thrash--YOU WILL BUY THIS. YOU WILL GIVE THIS BAND MONEY. YOU WILL BANG YOUR HEAD UNTIL IT FUCKING FALLS OFF. Buy or Die, unless you’re a Barry Manilow fan." -- J.P.
