It's always a joy to post a band that features a friend. It's especially a joy when the friend's band kicks major ass! It's my pleasure to present Thismeansyou, the band of the incredibly metal ! Strangely enough, I was aware of this group even before I had met the bald and sexy one. I had downloaded one of their tracks in my random browsings of metal bands a couple years ago, a track that kicked major ass. Not sure why I didn't pursue them further, but damn I'm glad I've been reintroduced.

Thismeansyou is what would happen if you took the best and catchiest parts of (dare I say) commercialized modern metal and combined it with the intensity and awesomeness of thrash and melodic death metal. Don't let the term commercialized scare you off, for they blend that extra sheen with the intensity and in your face-ness of thrash incredibly well. This band goes from playing hard hitting melodic lines to punching you with thrash-tactular blasts, which include thrashing guitars, pounding drums, and furious bass. The vocals come from a highly vicious chick who just spouts out aggression and brutality, while still allowing for melodic and clean singing (without loosing the intensity). This song is probably one of their most thrash inspired track, fast and furious! And what thrash song is without a blistering solo? Definitely not this awesome track! Anyways, check these guys out! I personally can't wait until they come up to Boston and knock the socks off of the people up here!

Thismeansyou - wtfww
