We’re less than two weeks away from the release of No More Torture, the debut full-length from Vanishment, and today we’re fired up to bring you the second track from that effort, “Dismiss the Warning”. If you’re looking for some classic, raw, heavy thrash… you’ve absolutely come to the right place. Get the full scoop on the upcoming new album, set for a March 3 release through Dead Sage, and the latest sampling from that collection, immediately after the jump.
Based in Seattle, Vanishment calls back to many of the legends in the thrash realm, while delivering their particular brand with a relentlessly heavy DIY attitude that is extremely easy to get behind as a listener. Formed in 2019, Vanishment had only previously released a self-titled EP in 2021, while subsequently focusing their energy on live performances across the PNW… efforts that have translated well to the overall feel and aggression of No More Torture. Narrowing the scope a bit for now, let’s dive right into “Dismiss the Warning” to get a sense of the pummeling old-school thrash that lies on the horizon…
Drummer Chris Wozniak had this to say about the “Dismiss the Warning”:
“This one’s got something for everyone. The intro section channels some Randy Rhoads-era Ozzy vibes, before taking off into some high stepping thrash, capped off by a pummeling chorus with gang vocals. We didn’t leave much out on this track.”
No doubt about it. The pacing and cadence of the early stages are an awesome doomy throwback, and it takes off from there quite effortlessly. The choruses and solos absolutely soar, and once “Dismiss the Warning” really gets moving it doesn’t let up for a second. Vanishment packs a ton into this track, resulting in something that will appeal to any and all fans of classic thrash.
So yeah, there’s a lot to look forward to with No More Torture. As a reminder, that will be available on CD and digitally through Dead Sage on March 3, and is available for preorder here. Be sure to keep up with Vanishment over on Facebook as well. And if you happen to be in the PNW, they have a couple live dates lined up, including the Wacken Metal Battle West Regionals in Portland on April 1.
