Titel / Title Your Last Breath 
Label unsigned 
Web www.hellvetica.ch
Total run time
Vö/Releasebereits erschienen / already released 

When you compare their latest release to their EP "A New Hate Rising," which we reviewed in May 2010, someone could almost think that he or she is dealing with a completely new band. The cover artwork for the 2010 EP was very professional for a small Swiss band already but what these guys have delivered for their first long player is a real eye catcher, a well-elaborated piece of art.

Musically, the five guys of Hellvetica clearly have evolved. But they are still dedicated to a mixture of Thrash/Death Metal with Hardcore elements but also melodic parts. In comparison to the past, though, they have become much heavier and also singer Roman has learned a few more extremely evil growls. The rapid switching between screams, growls and clean vocals are particularly well done.

"Your Last Breath" also features more hardcore elements, which for me is a bit close to the bone. But I think all the hardcore fans out there will absolutely like it. Personally, I still like the melodic parts and the subtle guitar riffs and solos best. There could be quiet a few more of them on the LP. All in all, "Your Last Breath," is a successful debut work of a young Swiss band that would deserve a top position among the thrash metal elite.
