Reader Submission: Xpulsion: "Welcome to Yourself"

Just a quick one-off here. Nicolas MacDuffee from California thrashers Xpulsion contacted me to listen to their new song and review it. I don't normally do one song reviews, but I figured what the hell.

The song starts off with a slower bass riff, but immediately kicks into high gear after that. From that point on it is just pure unadulterated thrash. The song remains fast and furious for the rest of its run time.

The band has a bit more of a classic Exodus-meets-Overkill style. It's raw and a little bit light-hearted but nevertheless razor-sharp. Xpulsion knows their source material well and they do an admirable job with this track. Looking forward to the EP.

This is definitely an old-school styled thrash metal track, so if you don't care for that kind of thing, don't listen. It is well-documented that I am a thrash fan.
