ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The band was born in 1997 but just ten years later, in 2007, two remaining guys of the original formation, Fernando Oster the drummer and Francisco Stanich the bassist, decided to turn it into their most important and serious project they ever done before.
At that moment they were already counting with lead guitar Rafael Iak, who joined the crew early in 2003, and vocals with Denis Melatto. All together started to create songs for their first album and gather pieces of old stuff they had composed along those years. A very small pre-production with four songs were produced and then they get into to start the full recordings. During one year they recorded material for the album, but the results were not being satisfactory according to their point of view, and besides of that, they were handling another internal challenge. The guys were not happy with Denis’ accomplishment. Denis was not in the same page as the rest of the guys, he had his own life style and the band needed more than a brilliant singer, they needed to be closer each other, sharing the same tune. At that moment they started to figure out what to do – replace Denis for any other singer could be a risk, they could be bringing other problems associated. And the biggest issue, they could never complete the main target – finish and release the album.
So, they decided to slow down the recordings and start to look for a new member. They searched for almost 10 months until hopefully find Silvano Aguilera. This guy had played with Rafael years ago and for any reasons they drift apart for many years. But now they were sure Silvano would be the perfect new member for the band. Finally in September 2009, they could turn back into the studio to finish the instrumental part and start to record all the vocals over again.
This current year, 2010, they are totally focused on the release of the CD and the band. Records have finished in May and the new album is finally ready to show this band. The mission is just beginning, they are coming to keep the thrash alive and bang your head till the end. This is WOSLOM.

This album rips from beginning to end!
I've been digging around finding so much great new thrash metal that I can't even remember where I heard about Woslom, but I was surprised by their debut record 'Time to Rise'. Hailing from Sao Paulo, Brazil, the band has been busy in the underground releasing five demos in the last 10 years. But 'Time to Rise' isn't a re-hashing on what they've done in the past, as only 2 of 9 tracks here previously appeared in Woslom's demos. The album boasts some nice production especially the guitars which have a slightly nasal crunch which gives them that authentic 80s vibe. Given that the album was produced and released by the band, the overall sound is impressive; nothing is too loud or drowned out in the mix. The bass guitar has a noticeable heaviness to it, but does not rise above the guitars. Drum work is well done, but pretty standard for the genre. Thrash metal is all about the guitar riffs for me, and on 'Time to Rise' there are a ton of tremolo/alternate picked thrash goodies that get your head banging. I hear influences in the axe work that range from Iron Maiden's gallop to Dimebag's squealing solos. Vocally you'll hear a mix between Chuck Billy & James Hetfield with the sparse peppering of the singer's accent coming through. Some stand out tracks include "Downfall," which has a cool hammer-on riff to start out, then breaks into an energetic lead and back to some biting staccato riffing. The title track has a very singable chorus and is smothered in guitar solos. I liked the eerie atmosphere that the guitars create during the later half of "The Deep Null." The album's closing track "Beyond Inferno" has a spastic main riff that reminds me of mid-80s Overkill. The great thing about Woslom is that they draw influence from all the great thrash bands of the past, but have created something fresh, and never sound exactly like their idols. The CD packaging is very well done with printed lyrics for each song and photos of the band.
