Six In Line - "Blez" This Band

Sweden’s own crossover thrash grunts, Six In Line are a name that’s beginning to get tossed around quite a bit. Their EP, “God Fukn Blez” is a fresh cartoony bat out of hell sure to please the masses.
The guitars are interesting, with catchy riffs that jump around the fretboard. Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies are probably the best way to put it. “Caravan of Entrails” sounds like a Saturday morning cartoon theme from the ’90s. Everything seems to bonk around and will put a smile on the listeners face while they head bang to the tune.
The real power is the bands wild card – frontman “Kaptain Nuke.” Nuke’s vocals are an interesting cross between Mike Muir (Suicidal Tendencies), Tom Angelripper (Sodom) and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The rhythm section is another cool element, as the bass and drumming is tight and punky. The double bass is strong. One song where the drums shine is “Romancing the Dead.” The bass has a lot of flavor in “Caravan of Entrails” and the closer “Indiscriminate Fire.”
Six In Line is a rad bunch of Swedes that have their own unique style of thrash. They can deliver the goods and have a lot of great humor, which adds to the music.
