English term or phrase: axe-slinging
(Musical review): "... If you like your '70s axe-slinging heavy on the riff..."(just listen to this CD).
Carmen Barrero
Spanish translation:agresivo, vigoroso, total
Explanation:
axe = hacha
slinging = arrojando, tirando

But "tirando hachas" is nonsensical. I would think that a reference is made to the 70's culture in in maximum expression, agressively and vigorously. Another way to say this might be "Si te gusta el estilo de los setenta total..."
