Chilean duo Crime have exploded out of the rock and roll underground in South America with their debut tape ‘First Crime’, out now on Shadow Kingdom Records. Three tracks of energetic, punkish heavy metal invade your ears, inspiring the raising of horns and the thrashing of necks.

Opener ‘Highway Robbery’ takes a while to get going thanks to a lengthy and creepy intro, but once it kicks into high gear it provides delightful Venomisms with some killer hooks. Galloping leads mesh with a squealing solo that invokes fond memories of early German thrash, while raspy vocals match up perfectly. Same with the infectious ‘Give Your Life to the Ruin’, where the urge to air guitar furiously increases with every minute.

Closing with the rampant ‘We Shall Destroy’, it is amazing how a short sharp burst of raucous energy can really reinvigorate your love of heavy music. Crime may steal every trick in the book, but ‘First Crime’ is a love note to the genuine roots of the genre and therefore you can be forgiven all of your sins when you make us all remember how fun metal used to be.
