In this article, we delve into the captivating world of 3000AD, a promising thrash metal band hailing from Christchurch, New Zealand. Our focus is on their powerful song, "Who's Watching," as we explore its character, style, story, potential, and more.

3000AD is an exciting old-school thrash metal band that I discovered about two months ago, thanks to their energizing song, "Who's Watching," featured on their debut album, "The Void," released in 2020. Officially making releases since 2018, they kick-started their career with the single "Devolution Theory" in 2018, followed by two more singles, "3000AD" and "Cells," both released in 2020. The band's ability to capture the essence of the golden days of thrash metal is commendable, especially for an upcoming group with the talent and passion for the genre. Join me as we explore the depths of their music while listening to the song.

"Who's Watching" marks my first encounter with 3000AD, and it didn't take long for me to notice that some of my acquaintances were sharing their music on my personal social feed. This revelation came as both a surprise and a testament to the song's success. "Who's Watching" embodies the elements of a highly accomplished piece, including proper dynamics, energy, flow, and instrumentation, all tied together by a captivating attitude. In the late '80s, attitude played a significant role in differentiating bands, and pioneers like Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and Pantera exemplified this spirit. It is delightful to witness a band like 3000AD embrace not only a similar music style but also the values associated with it. The nostalgic old-school vibes in "Who's Watching" remind us why we fell in love with this genre in the first place. Just as Pantera's charm captivated many, I have no doubt that 3000AD will have a similar effect. Their achievements thus far are praiseworthy, and their musical journey holds great promise.

From a technical standpoint, "Who's Watching" upholds exceptional standards. I commend the band for their commitment to preserving the authenticity of their music without succumbing to digital enhancements. This decision reflects their understanding and respect for the genre. The seamless blend of modern and old-school vibes in their sound, devoid of any unnecessary electronic elements, is a testament to their approach. While personal preference plays a role, I appreciate their dedication to a purist perspective, which aligns with my own sentiments.

In conclusion, my experience with 3000AD has been nothing short of exceptional. They possess a strong musical foundation that propels them toward greater heights in their career. This promising band has the potential to attract a legion of die-hard fans to the 3000AD fan club.
