REVIEW
This little Aussie cd gained a lot of interest in the thrash collectors circles, mosty because it was said that it was released in 100 or even less copies. I have no idea if this is true or not but the fact is, that (at least for now) this CD isn't that hard to come by, as I've seen 4 copies offered in the last year alone. From the musical point of view are ANIMUS far from your ordinary thrash band, as they combine all kinds of stuff, from the energetic hardcore / punk melodies, insane screams and even grindcore grunts. The result is fairly enjoyable, raw, chaotic and definitely different thrash album which you can't really compare to any other band. Not exactly the 10/10 metal gem, but worth having for its difference at least. (Boštjan Sovdat / 2009)
