The debut full-length album by Polish Hardcore/Thrash/Groove Metal band.
These pollens so inspired by Japanese history and culture that they have named themselves after a famous Bushi, and most of their lyrics deal with samurai history and myth.
Musically it’s a mix of Hardcore, Thrash and Groove Metal. Rhythmical and heavy. Most of the tracks on the release evolve around crushingly heavy riffage, as the band embrace a 90s-inspired Post-Thrash sound with a slight touch of 90s Hardcore influence (which, like Thrash Metal, also went down a more Groove alley in the 90s). This is particularly reflected in the vocal style. A characteristic of Hanzo's sound is repetition of simple, but crushing riffage. Hanzo do insert up-tempo elements into most of their songs, which ensure a sense of dynamics and ups the aggression a notch.
Musically, it is obvious that the Hanzo guys know exactly what they are doing, and the 90s Post-Thrash sound is something they have deliberately aimed at. 
If you are into 90s Post-Thrash, then chances are you will enjoy this samurai-inspired riff-fest!!
