"With a new line-up, Nervosa delivers "Jailbreak", a fast-paced, hard-hitting thrash bomb."

When it comes to stability, Nervosa is hardly a model. Two years after a successful "Perpetual Chaos" with a seemingly solid line-up, the Brazilian band is upending everything again. Prika Amiral is the only survivor. She takes over the microphone at the same time, and quickly recruits new members for "Jailbreak".

Nervosa don't change their tune, and throw down their slabs of blistering thrash speed. The speedy, galloping rhythm is reminiscent of Slayer, Prika's vocals are raw with a guttural edge, and riffs and solos come thick and fast ('Endless Ambition', 'Ungrateful', 'Elements Of Sin'). The game calms down with 'Seed Of Death' and 'Jailbreak'. These tracks feature melodic thrash akin to Kreator, with straightforward heavy metal riffs and solos, and simple yet effective choruses.

Nervosa try to stun their audience with ferocious, nervous tracks like 'Suffocare' or 'Sacrifice'. There's a touch of Exodus in this crushing music, especially on the choruses carried by Prika in full villain mode. Guest stars include Gary Holt (Exodus, ex-Slayer), who shows off his dexterity with a blistering solo on 'When The Truth Is A Lie', and Lena from Infected Rain, who adds an effective death side with a scathing growl on 'Superstition Failed'.

"Jailbreak" is a convincing opus. Despite the vagaries of the line-up, Nervosa have lost none of their effectiveness and offer a solid thrash album that's both fast and violent.
