TURBOCHARGED / RAGEHAMMER – Enlightenment by Bloodletting [Split]

Turbocharged / Ragehammer – Enlightenment by Bloodletting (2016, Godz Ov War Productions)

This split album by Turbocharged from Sweden and Ragehammer from Poland is a sample of each band’s music.

The first song, ‘’Bloodletting’’ by Turbocharged is a Black Thrash metal assault that is linked to early Venom and even Motörhead’s influence is more than palpable. It is old school and a lot more on the Thrash metal side of the Black Thrash movement.

The second and final song, ‘’Panzer Faustian Enlightenment’’ from Ragehammer is much more Black than Thrash metal and feels more vicious and dangerous than the previous band on the record. It’s evil and sounds really good as a blend of first and second wave black metal.

Released as a vinyl edition, this is a collector piece of two underground bands that each demonstrate a certain mastery in a slice of obscure metal. I personally enjoyed much more Ragehammer’s side with its ferocious velocity and its repeated listens potential.
