AFFLIKTOR (US) – Self-titled (Black/Thrash Metal)
Guitar legend Toby Knapp who has been involved in the creation of extreme metal music since the early 90s is here with his new band AFFLIKTOR. Playing scintillating black/thrash metal with wicked licks and seamless solos, Toby explores the genre and revitalizes it with his fresh outlook. It’s uncommon to see mind-bending guitar playing while staying true to the raw and underground aesthetic of the style. The majestic artworks made by Mark Riddick only portray the dark and ambitious nature of AFFLIKTOR. The vision behind the band is unheralded in all its experimental, convoluted glory. Black/thrash metal never sounded this exciting.
