Entrenched 'Preemptive Strike' review
New Jersey's Entrenched have launched their debut CD 'Preemptive Strike' upon the underground, but listening to the CD it is hard to believe this is a "debut". The band play a mix of brutal old school death metal with a huge influence of violent war/thrash metal intertwined within the violent speeding guitars and machine gun like drum patterns. The vocals are shared by the duo and fit perfectly with a more deeper,angry growl,grunt and intense shrieks of hate, while the band takes no prisoners and refuses to compromise it's sound. Entrenched have a lot of good musical ideas and even some catchy memorable guitar patterns throughout. If you enjoy straight forward death/thrash with a touch of war metal insanity then Entrenched is a band you must hear!
