In these last times, the thrash metal is literally reigning on these pages. So, the thrash metal series continues also today with this review about "Altered Beast", second album by Perpetratör from Portugal, a country which, in my opinion, has got one of the better black metal scenes in the world but I didn't know that it's also good to produce talented thrash metal bands. Specifically, Perpetratör is a relatively young band born in 2008 with a discography composed of two full-lenght albums and a split with the legendary Hellbastard but I said "relatively" because, into their line-up, there are musicians coming from very respected Portuguese bands like Filii Nigrantium Infernalium and Ravensire, all rooted into the '80s metal. Obviously, also Perpetrator are a cult to the '80s even because, curiously, they titled their second album just as a famous arcade videogame released by Sega in 1988. Maybe, it's only a coincidence...or not?
