Traces of War play thrash metal influenced by the classic origins of the genre. Fast, direct, raw, and played with an unpolluted approach, which retains the aggression within the music. I'd skate to these guys and happily circle pit to them. There are solos present, but they aren't over done to take the speed and heaviness away from the sound. In-fact the solos are played fast with a no nonsense style. Simply put, Traces of War are pure thrash.
Go listen to these guys if you enjoy stripped down raw thrash with minimal polish.
