Highlights from reviews of our CD Thanatos Unleashed:
"You don't get to hear this sort of thrash metal too much anymore. When it does show its face it's a welcomed break from all the
chugging guitars usually found in thrash."
No rating, www.battlehelm.com, Sweden, September 2011
"Their debut CD Thanatos Unleashed (their debut CD if one disregards promo tracks) is a splendid business card to the metal world.
The style is thrash and the energy is top-notch."
5 out of 6, www.callesrockcorner.dk, Denmark, August 2011
"Thanatos Unleashed is the long-awaited debut offering from a Danish trio going under the moniker of Symbolizer. Maybe not the most
original band name, but this relatively young band kicks some serious balls. In the recent years a Danish scene has seen the revival
of new way of Thrash metal acts. They all have something in common; an anger and enthusiasm for this kind of music spiced with
modern techniques and production. What maybe separates these Danes from the rest is their more melodic approach. They're still in a
possession of a typical dirty heavy riffing, intense drumming and very tight bass parts. Actually both instruments are very much
forward in the overall sound picture, making it a true pleasure to listen to this opus."
78 out of 100, www.metal-revolution.com, Denmark, August 2011
"The eight songs on the debut display a love for Bay Area thrash. Still, these Danes give their own twist to it, because they sound
more melodic than the stuff we hear from their American colleagues. By using tight thrash riffs as well as melodic parts the songs
are more varied."
73 out of 100, www.lordsofmetal.nl, The Netherlands, July 2011
"Lyrically it is based on life and all those fears about what's happening. The first track 'Paradox' already stick into your mind
straight from the first listen, many good tracks will catch u. Get that on CDbaby.com!!!"

"A musical style built on scores whose harmony has its roots in traditional metal, in which there is a certain basic primeval life
force, as well as a strong technical approach, these are elements that insinuate themselves skilfully between the stormy mists of
the opening track "Paradox" or the equally effective "Politicians", two excellent examples of ethereal and aggressive thrash metal,
characterised by a hail of riffs and dynamic solos, sung by the fine voice of Rasmus Kiaer, present in the double capacity of
guitarist, weaving the sick threads of an onslaught that knows no pause or shows any sign of abating."
3.5 out of 5, www.metalbrigade.it, Italy, April 2011
"Singer and guitarist Rasmus has a great, raw, yet melodic voice, fitting perfectly with the songs that draw influences from bands
like OVERKILL, ARTILLERY, MELIAH RAGE or XENTRIX and ONSLAUGHT. You will find some very touching compositions that are great to
headbang to. Killer debut album!"

Your music is very good. I think "Illusive Future" will be your classical song. You made me remember glorious days of thrash metal! Thrash till death then!! Greetings from Istanbul!!! ..m/

Dudes... I WANT YOUR ALBÚM! For some reason, I realy love the voice in your recordings... It reminds me of Bad Religion on the "how could hell be any worse" album but better sung and stuff. Please keep me informed of your plots and conspiracies against the world and the music industry! MUhahahaha! And if you can, MAIL your stuff 'cause I can't find it anywhere in Portugal...

I've listened to the songs and I like "Illusive Future": good start with the words "We are the soldiers of democracy" and with that sound. I think that your next work will be a good one. Respect from Italy

Copenhagen has pumped out some more really good music I am hearing with this. Mercyful Fate and King Diamond are all time favorites and now finally something else from there that really grabs my attention. I could see myself blasting this through my stereo speakers on a regular basis. Would love to have a cd of this music.
