Reign of Iniquity
Blistering amp-tubes, nearly breaking membranes, splints being continuously scraped off the drum sticks, sweat in the air and the cops are about to knock on the door due to noise disturbance. When Minsk Security - whose band name, by the way, does not indicate the origins - let go, nothing stays in place. Lead singer Marc grabs his audience live and on tape with extraordinary energy and passion, while the guitarists Oliver and Michael lay their guitar riffs precisely on Simon's driving beats and Andy's tight bass. Since the foundation in 2003 they have played nearly 100 concerts both at home and abroad, had titles on two compilations and next to a demo-tape they have already recorded one album with very good critics. Being rooted in the alternative and punk genre cannot be denied when listening to the melodic thrash metal of the 5 Swiss but in comparison to their debut album "Rebornation" (2008) they act much more tough-minded, condensed and catchy on their new album "Reign of Iniquity".
