Tenth Dan - Trapped Under Fire CD
Tenth Dan a Melbourne thrash band.
they are no longer active but this record still dominates. This is the last write up before the parting of ways.
Since the bands inception, Tenth Dan have developed into one of Australia’s highly respected live acts. Defying all modern metal and hardcore’s rules to bring something that is fresh and aggressive yet reminiscent of a time when heavy music was about the songs, not your new hair cut...
Tenth Dan holds strong to their trademark thrash sound. Positioning themselves between old school hardcore and old school metal has helped Tenth Dan surpass restrictions formerly defined by the marketplace for heavy music.
Trapped under fire marks a new beginning for Tenth Dan. A truly ground breaking release by anyone’s standard. Combining an uncompromising mix of break neck riffs and relentless beats to create something that defies all today’s trends, fashions and formulated musical vomit.
Recorded by Sam Johnson (The Abandonment, 50 lions, Samsara) and co-produced by Beltsy (Mindsnare, Blood Duster) at Melbourne’s newest recording institution 3 Phase Studios. Trapped Under Fire is distinctly reminiscent of Melbourne’s sadly missed classic 90’s metal and hardcore scenes. A time when bands like Mindsnare and Damaged were gods amongst men.
