Testament, Exodus & Death Angel – Manchester Academy 7/3/20

Without question this stellar thrash package, dubbed ‘The Bay Area Strikes Back’, was the best to hit our shores in a very long time. Indeed the legacy of each band is legendary to say the least as this colossal tour… Continue Reading →

Death Angel – Humanicide (Nuclear Blast)

Humanicide is Death Angel’s ninth album and fourth with the current line-up that’s been together for 10 years already. Going from strength to strength and losing absolutely none of their vitality over the years, this album is as fast and… Continue Reading →

Exodus, Sodom, Death Angel – London Electric Ballroom 6/12/18

I’m kinda annoyed that I missed Suicidal Angels, as I was looking forward to getting to see them. Granted I only have ‘Bloodbath’, so their set would have been mostly unfamiliar material, but from the roar of approval they got… Continue Reading →

Charred Walls Of The Damned – Creatures Watching Over The Dead (Metal Blade)

Charred Walls Of The Damned, who some might refer to as a “supergroup” have delivered their third album albeit after a five year break. Certainly, the collective CV’s of the band members name check some of heavy metal’s finest –… Continue Reading →

Metal Allegiance – Fallen Heroes (Nuclear Blast)

Although very much a celebration of all things, one aspect of Bloodstock Open Air Festival this year was those paying tribute to fallen heroes. As far as the metal gods are concerned the reaper has never been busier, embarking on… Continue Reading →

Death Angel – The Evil Divide (Nuclear Blast)

Well, another thrash album in what has been a promising spell of releases for the genre. Another unsung name and often overlooked thrash band from the 80’s who have a ferocious sound but because they aren’t in the big four,… Continue Reading →

Mortillery – Shapeshifter (Napalm)

I described Mortillery’s “Origin of Extinction” (2013) album as an absolute blast. From Eskimo country, well Edmonton Eskimos country, come Mortillery to give us a healthy dose of melodic thrash metal. Once again Mortillery fire off their bullets without delay… Continue Reading →

Ultra Violence – Deflect The Flow (Candlelight)

Ultra Violence are (for those who are un-initiated) a young Italian bunch of thrash-revivalists, who started out their career with their debut full length ‘Privilege to Overcome’ on the modern thrash pushing label Punishment 18, and now see their 2nd… Continue Reading →

Angelus Apatrida – Hidden Evolution (Century Media)

To say that this album pulls no punches is a bit like saying `shooting yourself in the head isn’t very good for you’. To the uninitiated, this is the fourth raging opus from Spain’s very own thrash metal fanatics, Angelus… Continue Reading →

Pantheon – Intervention (S/R)

What I like about many of the UK Metal bands I’ve heard from the last 10 years or so, is that they generally either take a style but try to make it sound different in some small way, re-imagine what… Continue Reading →

Kayser – Read Your Enemy (Listenable)

I actually heard this bands “Kaiserhof” debut album years ago but forgot about it, so I gave it another spin to remind myself of what it was like and much like this new album Kayser play thrash metal and have… Continue Reading →

Death Angel, Dew-Scented & Extrema – London Underworld 10/12/13

Wandering towards the door of The Underworld I began to wonder whether I’d got the night wrong. There wasn’t a single person milling about outside and certainly no queue. As I got to the ticket booth however, a dreadlockless Mark… Continue Reading →
