INSANITY ALERT – “Glorious Thrash” (Music Video) And “First Diagnosis” Demo Are: Stone’s METAL Picks Of The Day!

INSANITY ALERT – There’s no question that Thrash Metal does have its crossover history and who gives a f**k attitude. Thrash is truly glorious and Austria’s Insanity Alert are well aware of the before mentioned; pledging their Crossover Thrash and Thrash allegiance with both their Glorious Thrash music video and 6 song demo: First Diagnosis.

Blazing fast Crossover Thrash. Underground Thrash Metal. All of this raw, unruly and (thankfully) under produced Thrashing Metal Madness shall blister your Thrashin’ soaked brain, as it absorbs this First Diagnosis demo. Insanity Alert sound like all their beer cans are in a row. These dudes know how to summon some old school garage Thrash, while not trying to reinvent any sacred wheel.

Run To The Pit is song #6 on First Diagnosis and is a cover of (the legendary) Iron Maiden’s Run To The Hills. Well, not exactly a lyrical cover. Run To The Pit is an exclamation point on this demo from Insanity Alert and I appreciate its risk factor; after all, there’s many threads of insanity in all of us Crossover Thrash maniacs, both from yesterday and today. As a demo, First Diagnosis kicks some legit underground ass. Metal be thy name.

Listen to and watch the Glorious Thrash video below! Whoa!
